As we're all stuck in quarantine, or most of us, I have decided to create an opportunity to keep us all busy (at least for a little while). I did some thinking for what to do, and since Sol and I we're doing a lot of art, I thought we could do an end-of-the-week art show. I talked about it with my family and then the idea popped up to include the whole school district on Haida Gwaii for an online exhibit. I thought that was too much work. We eventually came to the consensus that it would be family and friends only.
Introducing the Quarantine art show
We received many entries in many different media, ranging from animation, collages, drawing, painting and poetry to food arts and embroidery. I'm impressed with the great turnout. Contributing artist ages ranged from 11 months to 83 years old. Enjoy the show!
Artist: Abby Horner
Age: 14 years
Town: Queen Charlotte
Title: "Working from Home"
Medium used: animation creator HD (an app)
Description: I just made this video as a silly little thing to lighten the mood of everyone stuck in quarantine.

Closing words by lief
Thank you to all my friends and family for sharing all your art in this chaotic time. I still can't believe how many pieces we received, 36 in total. It was a fun and challenging project. I hope that this activity has kept you occupied for some time during quarantine. I hope nobody has the coronavirus and you're all doing well in your homes.
Anyway, thanks again,
P.S. If you enjoyed this, please consider contributing to Sol's Call for Food Art, to be exhibited next Saturday:

Great job! I’ll have to create something for Sol, but it may not be artsy, but it’ll taste good. 😉
Thanks! I can't wait!

Thanks so much Lief! This brought warmth and smiles to us both. Thanks to all the participants and look forward to the food art next week!
Thank you! Sol's pretty exited for it.
Really fun!!! I sat with the kids this morning and we looked at each piece. Needless to say, they LOVE Abbie's! We'll get thinking on some food art ideas....
Thanks guys! Lots of people are saying Abby's was a hit!
Hey Lief, thanks again for a great idea, I loved the variety of submissions and thought they were all wonderful. The best thing was I didn’t think about covid at all
