    Title: Ready or Not

    15 days ago

    This art was submitted by Amanda D. Humpage in the feeling category.

    About the artwork she said, "As our community schools were debating the logistics of educating children during a pandemic, I followed with close attention, thinking not just of my own child, but also of the children and families with fewer options and resources. I made this portrait of my child in a mask with the words "ready on not" to express the vulnerability of the precious young people in our lives. This portrait is hand cut silhouette paper."

    Title: Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired

    15 days ago

    This art was submitted by Amanda D. Humpage in the Race/Ethnicity Inclusion category.

    About the artwork she said, "Over the past year, as our society has grappled with the tremendous racial inequality, compounded by and intersecting with other forms of inequality, I reflected on past civil rights leaders. At the same time, as voting rights and access have been challenged, I have thought of the legacy of voting rights advocates and suffragists. Fannie Lou Hamer (1917-1977) devoted years of her life to civil rights for African-American women and to voting rights. Her famous words, "I'm sick and tired of being... Continue reading

    Title: Alone Together

    18 days ago

    This art was submitted by Raghda Skeik in the Race/Ethnicity Inclusion category. It is oil on canvas. This artwork was inspired by the hope and beautiful possibilities that my 10 year old daughter came out with during the quarantine time. This time allowed her to think out of the box to stay connected with her loved ones as much as she can. She would spend hours staring outside the window to connect with her neighbored friend at least not through a phone screen but in the new norm life!

    Submissions by David Fallon

    18 days ago

    This art was submitted by David Fallon. About his art David said, "The purpose of my art is to expand the conversation about sex-positivity and body-positivity. I use visual art as a way to allow people to be heard. I do this by inviting people of all gender and cultural identities to be featured in my compositions. I encourage people to examine their feelings and cultural stigmas that may have negatively affected them. And most importantly, I encourage people to simply have fun in the process.

    Title: Quaker State

My work is personal (though I guess all art is) and communicates deep feelings that are otherwise not able to be expressed verbally. There are no words. My hope is always that the image connects with the viewer in a powerful, evocative, and intuitive way.
