Minnesota Landscape Arboretum Exhibit: “2020… Cancelled“

Oct 30, 2020 | art/design

Pictured: When The World Changed – 40” X 30” Oil on Canvas – by Mary Calengor
The typed message, “2020… Cancelled“ and the crumpled newspaper tell the story of our current situation, frustrations while life as we know it has come to a halt.
The typewriter represents a historical milestone that affected the world in the same ways but ways far more positive. This marvelous invention connected us, changed the economy, and provided opportunity in the workplace for women. Hopefully we shall emerge a stronger, smarter, more compassionate society.
This painting shall be a reminder of these strange times and symbolic of positive changes that are a result of the difficulty we are experiencing today. Artists Rx: Responses during COVID-19 features work created by Minnesota artists since the pandemic started. The artworks — many rooted in nature, others finding inspiration from the built environment — are joined by the desire to find connection and joy, often amid isolation and fear.
The exhibit is open now through Jan. 6, 2021 in the Reedy Gallery and features work from Mary Calengor, Susan Davies, Leanne Hanson, Katy Noun and Darren Terpstra.
