Art in Lockdown: Wolverhampton Art Gallery call for artists for online exhibition

By Urmala Jassal

Wolverhampton Art Gallery is inviting people to submit art for a special exhibition about life during lock down.

‘Art in Lockdown’ is an online initiative focusing on the subject of life experiences during the covid -19 crisis.

Contributions are welcome from anyone working, living or studying in the city and can be in the form of visual, text, craft or music-based art.

City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for City Economy Councillor Harman Banger said: “I hope this exhibition will highlight how Wolverhampton has been proactive and how we have come together during this time.

“We have seen a number of pieces created by the public that have captured our beautiful city.  Reflecting how people have coped with all of the challenges that lockdown has brought.”

The exhibition has been inspired by local artist Ed Isaacs who has been exhibiting work on social media platforms, during the lockdown period.

Post lockdown, the City of Wolverhampton Council will be looking to host the exhibition at one of the city’s cultural venues.

To take part, send a high resolution image or audio recording together with your name, age, location and a brief description of your work to by Sunday 31 May 2020.
