There will be a major show at the Falmouth Art Center in 2021 titled The Cape Cod Quarantine Diaries. Artists working in any of the visual arts are invited to submit, including paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolors, and pastels; drawings; printmaking; collage; photography; fiber arts, including weaving; glass; ceramics, sculpture and more are invited. The theme is how you view and how you experience this time of the coronavirus. Over the past year, our students ranged in age from 18 months (toddlers in our free Coalition for Children class) to 97 years old (an artist who paints in watercolor), so we are opening this up to all ages and even families creating art together. There will be age categories for the work. Everyone is invited to participate. If we run out of gallery space, submissions may be displayed digitally. Submission dates will be announced in the future, but artists can start working now! We will create a format for people to share ideas and (virtual) collaborations as well.

Christine Anderson, an instructor in the Falmouth Art Center’s weaving program, is working daily on her Quarantine Diary piece. This 3-minute video explains her project. Christine is weaving a small square each day during this ‘shelter in place’ period, a moving way to capture this trying time in our lives. Christine has offered to sell the squares as a benefit for the Falmouth Art Center. The squares could serve as a way to understand and remember the isolation we all have shared. A square costs $50. If you want to purchase a square and support the Art Center, you can email or call the Falmouth Art Center at 508-540-3304.
