What is it like to make art during a pandemic, and while miles away from your classmates, your art instructor, and most everyone else to boot?
University of Lynchburg studio art students Zalia Griffiths ’21 and Rena Conklin ’22, along with art instructor Bev Rhoads, talked with The News & Advance about that and the personal and powerful new artwork that’s come out of the experience.
“Rhoads has taken this pandemic almost as a new prompt,” Griffiths, who goes by “Z,” told the newspaper. “She is encouraging us to not continue to work on our art as if nothing has happened, but notice that something has happened, and use that in our art.”
