The Art Center creates new exhibition
'Creating in Isolation'

As Americans and people around the world continue to adapt, adjust and struggle through the confines of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Award-Winning Art Center in Dover has mounted a new exhibition that targets this unprecedented moment in history. Rebecca Proctor, director of The Art Center, sent out a call to national and international artists to submit work that expressed their feelings about ‘Creating in Isolation’. She was not specific that the work needed to be related to the pandemic and the result is a show that is cohesive, timely and surprisingly exuberant.
