Masked / unMasked
Living and surviving in this historic time of a pandemic has changed each of our lives in ways that we have only just begun to understand. Artists in the past have significantly contributed to and helped shape historic moments of change.
The overall theme of the 2021 exhibition calendar for the WCAA Main Street Gallery of ‘Masked / UnMasked’ is meant to offer the arts community their own ‘unmasking’ of personal work and how it may have been altered or even changed altogether by self -isolation, mask wearing and the absence of social engagement. We have assembled a calendar for the full exhibition year to encourage and inspire the contemplation of new work from the WCAA members.
