The new normal

Submitted by: Sherree

Materials: Sock mask in black, homemade mask in mango, black gloves dollar store

Everyday I look up at my masks in the bathroom and wonder if two is enough. Should I have more? Are they enough? Why isn’t everyone wearing one? Will I switch from black gloves to white in the summer?

Whimsical Paintings of Healthcare Workers

Submitted by: Carla Flegel

Materials: Watercolour mounted on wood board preserved with UV protectant and archival wax

I have been painting some whimsical paintings of the healthcare workers. There is a growing number of them. They are in response to the BC provincial health recommendations… such as social distance, and all the PPE required.

Family Set of Masks

Submitted by: Michele

Materials: Cotton fabric, old pillow cases for the liners.

Our twenty-something kids have been wonderful company during our isolation. Feeling grateful to have a rural property during these hard times. I sewed these for everyone at home, and one to send to my mom. Everyone here got to pick their own fabric from my stash (except Mom’s was a surprise 🙂 ).

Pandemic Waiting room

Submitted by: anonymous

Materials: Photograph

This was the waiting room at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota on March 20th, 2020. The last time I saw this waiting room was 8 months ago and it was crowded with people in every seat and most people were talking and interacting with each other. It was such an odd feeling to see the waiting room with signs on random seats and social distancing with very few people in the room. The reality of the pandemic was impressed upon me when I walked into and viewed this waiting room.
