Reflections On the Pandemic expresses the ways in which local artists and poets are affected by the pandemic. We are excited to feature paintings, photographs, and poetry by local and regional artists and poets. Their work speaks of isolation, introspection, and renewed appreciation for the natural beauty that surrounds us on the Outer Cape. We hope you will make an appointment to see this exhibition. Viewing hours are Monday-Friday, 10 AM-12 PM and 2-4 PM. Email [email protected] to schedule a time to come in.
Reflections on the Pandemic is an ongoing project, and we welcome new submissions. Please send personal reflections, stories and photos that express your response to life during the pandemic. We will collect, compile, and preserve these submissions as part of our mission to chronicle and provide historical information and insight as it relates to Truro and the Outer Cape.
