Healthcare workers who enjoy making art are invited to submit one piece to Guilford Art Center’s gallery exhibition. Works in all media—painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, fiber arts, photography, jewelry, mixed media and more—are welcome. (See the Call for Entries PDF below.)
In Good Hands will demonstrate how art helps with strength, resilience, and healing. Especially since the pandemic, people are turning toward the arts for these benefits. How has art helped healthcare workers, in particular, who are bearing an increased toll? How do their abilities to observe creatively in their jobs translate to their art? How do they engage with art’s joyful, therapeutic benefits? This exhibition will celebrate some of these answers through the art of these heralded community members.
