"Whether during times of calm or chaos, art is essential. It marks our experiences, helps us to reflect, and engages us. Art reminds us of thoughts and emotions that we all share. As artists during these uncertain times, we want to share our work with you in a virtual space. Featured in this online exhibition are small works by a group of over 50 talented and diverse contemporary artists. Please join us in celebrating these small paintings.
We hope you feel inspired and a little less alone."
Organization and planning is underway for the inspired apART online small works exhibition! An artist created platform bringing talented 2-D creators together to connect people to art while social distancing.
Inspired apART is an artist-created online exhibition platform, built to connect artists and viewers, filling the gaps in arts and culture due to social distancing .

The use of technology can provide new and exciting opportunities for artists to come together to share and sell artwork while ensuring the safety of others. Art has the power to unify and help relieve stress, both through creating and viewing.
Inspired apART aims to bring an online collection of work from accomplished artists to the public for enjoyment and enrichment during these especially uncertain times.
