Gallery Q at the Susi Q launches virtual exhibition

Gallery Q isn’t letting the isolation of the pandemic hinder artistic expression. To help local community artists, the gallery is announcing its first “virtual show” that can be viewed from the comfort of home. 

Gallery-goers can “meet the artists” and view their work at now through August 10.

The online viewing room features 85 pieces of artwork by over 40 artists and includes a wide selection of paintings, textiles, photography, ceramics, mixed media, and more.

“Happy Hour” by artist Bill Gibson

Longtime artist and Gallery Q arts coordinator Judy Baker recognized the need to keep discovering and supporting the arts community, while social distancing remains in place. 

“I like the expression ‘art soothes the soul.’ What a difficult time for art galleries and art festivals to be closed – not only for the artists but for the community as a whole. We provided this virtual exhibit at no cost to the artists and for the pleasure of all art lovers, wherever you may be.”

Many of the art pieces in the show are available for sale. Purchases can be made by contacting the artist directly through their listed email.
