Sheltered: Artists Respond To Covid-19

Schack Art Center, Everett, WA - To Mar 20

by Matthew Kangas

With plenty of time to shelter in place, invited Pacific Northwest artists have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with a riotous mixture of humor, gravity and topicality. Nothing escapes political judgment or commentary anymore, including public health crises, so artists such as Natalie Niblack sent her hilarious ceramic busts of ex-president Donald Trump and his personal fixer, former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani, both caught in deliciously embarrassing moments. Works by witty stalwarts like Juan Alonso-Rodriguez, Kelly Lyles and Steve Jensen also appear.
