Art During the Time of COVID-19
August 2 at 8:00 am – October 2 at 3:00 pm
The Gallery at OCA Mocha presents Art During the Time of COVID-19, on display through October 2.
Life as we know it has changed drastically within the past few months. What seemed like immutable, reliable routines have shifted to adapt to the times, and so have we. As visitors stroll through the gallery, they’ll come across the various ways our community has responded to the changing times. While some create to find comfort in a synthesized routine, others find inspiration in their changed landscape. The Gallery encourages visitors to find that comfort and inspiration within themselves — creative expression knows no bounds, whether through working on personal projects, honing skills, or sinking teeth into a new passion. Art can heal, art can save lives, and art can bring us together even while we are apart. Our community’s art stands as a testament to resilience.
Featured artists include Emily Beaver, April Berardi, Satya Emerick, Gloria Tseng Fischer, Susan Flanagan, Aarthi Haig, hana, Symone Hardy, Imani K. Jackson, Karly Maroney, Eben McCullough (TheAntArts), Kris McElroy, Kathleen McPartland, Autumn Lynn Miller, Julie Miller, Phoebe O’Dell, Preet Patel, Rachel Pomponi, Wanda Prather, Yuxiao Ran, Josh Schneider, and Diana Tsuji.
The Gallery at OCA Mocha is dedicated to promoting and showcasing the creative efforts of UMBC and the surrounding community in its mission to unite people through artistic expression. Located at 5410 East Drive in Arbutus, Maryland, the gallery is open free to the public, with hours 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
