Arts & Culture: Grayson gallery goes virtual for latest exhibit – The Tribune

Grayson Gallery and Art Center has pivoted during the pandemic to work around health issues and rules for gathering by offering virtual exhibits via photos of original artwork from local makers. As part of the monthly Grayson F!nal Fr!days Art Walk, the gallery will present the virtual exhibit at 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 29.

They are currently looking for participation from even more artists. Anyone who contributes that utilizes social media will be added as a ‘contributor’ to the photo album, which can be found on their Facebook page, so creators will have even more input, such as adding pricing of work.

Artists are invited to submit up to three pieces for the exhibit. The gallery is specifically interested in what artists have created over the past year, especially since the COVID-19 crisis escalated, or older work that represents the effects of the pandemic.

To submit, email Dan Click at

This was supposed to be the year that Meow Wolf became so integral to popular culture that, in the words of one of its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, it would be well on its way to becoming a “provider of themed entertainment and creative experiences on the level that people think of Disney, Universal and Marvel.”

And on March 8, as I spent a Sunday afternoon in the company’s Santa Fe, N.M., exhibition space, that boast didn’t seem so far-fetched.

Crouching down in one of Meow Wolf’s byzantine rooms I entered what appeared to a doorway and found myself in the back seat of a van-like contraption that seemed to have been willed into existence by the creator of some long lost TV show.

We need all hands on deck to save America’s arts and culture economy

The outdoor stages are silent. There are no art fairs or gallery walks, no concerts in the parks. The COVID-19 pandemic has decimated arts and culture in America, wiping out as many as half of all jobs for performing artists and musicians, and nearly a third of jobs for all those who work in the creative economy broadly spanning arts, music, theater, design, entertainment and media, according a study we did for the Brookings Institution.

Between April and the end of July, some 2.7 million jobs and $150 billion in revenues were lost. As the crisis took hold this spring, the average income of American artists and creatives plummeted to just about $14,000 a year.

While Broadway’s darkened marquees stand as the most prominent symbol of the crisis, the damage is being felt across the nation. Atlanta, Nashville, New Orleans, Austin, Orlando, Las Vegas and Miami lost an even
