1st Online Exhibition: Creativity from Solitude

2020 League of Milwaukee Artists 
1st ON-LINE EXHIBITION: “Creativity from Solitude”

Artists have endured centuries of hardships and successes.  No group of creative souls has had such passion and perseverance as the artist.  Through this specific time we are all facing together, this exhibition serves as inspiration to all that view it.  The artists are voicing their emotions and exhibiting their talents amid a worldwide pandemic.  LMA is demonstrating hope and positive perspectives as they demonstrate "we can keep moving forward, in unity, through our solitude during COVID 19."

Exhibition Dates:
Opening Date: May 10, 2020 (Mother's Day)
Closing Date: July 6,  2020

Having the exhibition beginning and ending on these special dates signify the core of humanity as we reflect and spend time with our families of which much of our creativity comes from.

― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

All information will be publicized.  If you do not wish to have your contact information such as your email or cell phone, then leave that area blank.   Know that your work will be offered for sale and like most of our exhibitions, sales will be the responsibility of the artist.  In other words, the buyer will contact you to purchase your work.  The artist will be responsible for all taxes, contacting the potential buyer and delivery.  The Exhibition Chair will have her info available as an additional contact for sales.  There will be no commissions taken.

Yes, this is a very unique, out of the box venture.  As artists we have the ability to set free thoughts of concern.  This is an unusual time and we can instill serenity and hope by showing our art and inspirational thoughts to the world through social media.  By this unique exhibition we can reach out to others and show how creativity is alive and well.  Cheer, hope and happiness are still at hand.

A video will be made with the collection of all the art entries and information.  This will be broadcast on the LMA Facebook page and other media.  When it is posted artists are welcome (and encouraged) to share this to your social media.
