Call for art for new Online Art project:
"Kaua`i Artists at Home”
Entries are/will be on view on instagram -
and on the Kauai Society of Artists facebook page.
Each artist is finding her/his way through these isolating times. Some of you may be thriving in your studios; others may find it difficult to be creative as financial concerns and anxiety have crept into your homes.
KSA offers you an opportunity to share your artistic journey through these "interesting" times.
Covid-19 is undeniably changing the structure of our lives, businesses, and mental health as we practice social distancing, curfews, and stay-at-home orders. This unprecedented time is something we are doing our best to look at in a positive light.
KSA would like to see and hear about the incredible things you are all making at home. Let's lift each other's spirits and see some amazing artists in their element, creating their artwork.
KSA plans to feature one artist at a time on our website and social media as a way to bring our creative community together. Our goal is to create an online resource for other artists to feel connected to each other and their community. We are looking for photos, videos, stories, whatever you'd like to share about your time spent creating during this unique time.
Art helps us heal, gives us a voice, and speaks to culture through creative inspiration.
Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to participate or inquire further.
We would love to hear from YOU about what you are making to cope with the current situation, how you are making it, and what you have done to adjust your business or art during this time.
Have you been able to support or engage your community; if so, how?
Is there a way your community can help you?
What advice or words of support can you offer other artists in the community?
We would also love to see a photo of your favorite creative spot and what you are working on... In the studio, in front of the TV, in the kitchen, etc.
How can we find you online? IG handle, website, etc.
In addition to sharing what everyone has been busy working on, we will be putting together a new page for the KSA website that will contain resources for accessing art, support for artists, and interesting articles for these interesting times. Keep an eye out for more information on this website update by following KSA on Instagram and Facebook.
There is something really special about Kaua'i and the nature of its community to come together and support one another.
Mahalo for participating. Keep washing those hands!
