Fine Arts: Hopewell Valley Arts Council member works on display

By Janet Purcell for The Times of Trenton

When COVID-19 struck in March it put a halt to life as we knew it. But one thing it couldn’t do was extinguish the spark of creativity that lives within us all.

Early into the pandemic, the Hopewell Valley Arts Council stepped in with an invitation to its members to submit up to two pieces of two-dimensional works made since the stay-at-home mandate was put in place. The invitation said in part, “The global health pandemic brings with it fear, dislocation and loss. But it also brings with it a unique opportunity to slow down, reflect, and re-prioritize as we stay at home. As artists, we jump at the opportunity of free time to dive into our creative activities, often with a surge of inspiration, during difficult times like these.”

As predicted, the artists did jump at the opportunity and now, following CDC guidelines, we can enjoy an exhibition of exactly what 40 of the members did.

There is such a variety of works on display in the Hopewell Valley Bistro and Inn it would be interesting to know if the artists worked in this variety of genres prior to the shut down or if these were the fruits of their taking advantage of the extra time at home to delve into new avenues of expression.


 "Their homemade desserts. By far, some of the best I've ever had. My favorites are the kremesh, esterhazy, and chocolate mousse cake. You won't regret it!" :)
