Inspiration in Isolation highlights the ways in which gallery artists have reflected on this period of global tumult and social isolation, how they’ve adapted, and how they have been transformed.
22 October 2020 (New Orleans, LA) JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY is proud to announce, Inspiration in Isolation, a group exhibition of artworks from canceled or postponed exhibitions and artworks that were created by artists in quarantine during the COVID -19 pandemic. This exhibition will highlight the ways in which gallery artists have reflected on this period of global tumult, how they’ve adapted, and how they have been transformed by it.
Inspiration in Isolation features artwork from eighteen different local, national, and international artists working across a wide range of mediums including painting, assemblage, installation, sculpture, works on paper, and textile. What results is an exhibition that embodies different aspects of the human experience and generates a dialogue on how the human experience has been molded by current events. The artists in this group show reflect on topics ranging from solitude and human connection to police brutality and political unrest.
Inspiration in Isolation is the first of a two-part group exhibition which reviews the gallery’s entire artist programme. Part two, entitled New Year, New Art, will follow, opening January 2021, and will focus on artists who are new to the JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY roster.
Inspiration in Isolation will be on view from 4 November to 19 December 2020 with a rolling opening reception from 11 am – 7 pm on 7 November and 5 December in conjunction with the Arts District New Orleans’ First Saturday Gallery Openings. For the December opening, JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY will be participating in Holiday Cheers, an Arts District-wide event featuring holiday décor, a coat drive for the needy, specialty cocktails from nearby restaurants, and a rolling art walk to spread holiday cheer!
