Art Exhibition – Lockdown to Liberty
November 18, 2021 @ 11:00 am - November 21, 2021 @ 2:00 pm
A community collaboration between U3A, MAC and TTT to present an exhibition of community responses to a series of seven lockdowns and each Liberation in 2021.
The Liberty series is light and fresh, heralding new life. Several of the works include symbols of the artists’ lives including musical and wind organ motifs, wildlife, loved ones and fantasy.
After almost 200 days of Lockdown in Regional Victoria and the announcement of Lockown#6, tutor June marks tasked the 20member artists with some art therapy to express their response to the prospect of another prolonged isolation. The rules were simple: A2 cartridge paper and charcoal imagined manifestations of otherwise benign objects around the the house.
The group was encouraged to express the hope and joy of the freedom which would eventually arrive.
The U3A Surf Coast Art Group Lockdown to Liberty exhibition demonstrates the community’s ability to deal with despondency and to rise to the challenge of not only the immediate impacts of a pandemic but also the side effects of isolation, shortages, and radical adaptations to new ways of living and working.
