A Yearning Desire For Art

Submitted by: Ann W.

Materials: Acrylic paint, wooden canvas, paintbrushes, wooden easel

This is a photo I took at Artists For Humanity, the company I work for. This is the job I absolutely love and wish to never depart from, but this pandemic has forced us to leave things behind that we hoped to never stray. The message I want to spread of wanting and longing for something is not only for those who love art but also for those who miss the arms of family, the lips of loved ones, the true sound of friends’ laughs, as well as the drive for passion.

Emptiness

Submitted by: Isabella Andiorio

Materials: Canon Camera

Here is a photo of a local restaurant in my town. On regular weekdays, my family and I eat at this restaurant only because the weekends the wait usually exceeds what my family and I are willing to wait. It is typically very crowded and filled with locals. I decided to take a picture of this because I feel it truly shows how the virus is affecting society and particularly my town. It is crazy to think that just a few months ago, this parking lot would be full of cars; however, as shown in this picture, it is now empty. This part of town was always bustling with excitement and entertainment. You can even see a stage and a piece of the golf course in the background of this photo. Now, as you can see, even with social distancing, no one gathers.

I have so much free time now that we are literally caged in, so this has lead me back to my passion of drawing. I literally draw anything that interests me. My family, my relationship, my surroundings the outside world.

Social Distancing

Submitted by: Annabella Andiorio

Materials: Canon camera

I took this photo at a local grocery store. During this time I have been going out to various stores and restaurants to take pictures of the signs they have posted on their doors. Almost all stores and restaurants have been hanging signs up like these to make sure their costumers are practicing social distancing. This particular photo of mine is my favorite because not only does it capture the sign on the door but also people in the background who have masks and gloves on. I feel that this photo captured the situation we are facing right now perfectly because it is showing the seriousness and precautions we have been taking. This sign really caught my eye because it is stated that everyone is required to wear masks. This shows just how bad the situation is and how it is affecting people’s daily lives.
