The Community Art Show was on display at The LAVA Center in November and December, 2020.
Organizers Lindy Whiton, Charmae Bartlett and Christine Diani gathered together thirteen Western MA-based artists—five photographers, four painters, three sculpture/installation artists, and a mixed media artist—for a diverse display of art that all centered around the theme of community.
“Community is a large topic for an art show and it allows for tremendous differences in interpretation. Community was chosen because we have been separated from it so much during this pandemic, and we need to find ways to keep it awake in our lives. This show is an attempt to safely bring people together and remind them not only of the importance of community, but of the benefits as well.”
