While many galleries and museums have, and are holding Covid-era art exhibitions, almost historical retrospectives displayed while the period is still in-progress, with its upcoming “Turmoil and Transformation” exhibition, Hera Gallery aimed to present art that suggests a post-pandemic world.
The exhibition, open to artists nationwide, was juried by Francine Weiss, senior curator at the Newport Art Museum. Most of the work was made between 2019 and 2021, with a few earlier pieces. The exhibition stands as a strong survey of work being made by artists throughout the United States.
“Each work presents new insight after a year of deep inner and outer reflections from religion, to climate change, reproductive rights, racial equality, health care, consumerism, and overall the human experience of creating understanding of trying times through art-making,” said gallery director Sonja Czekalski.
