First and foremost, we want to reassure our artists, our partners, and the public that we are monitoring the impact of COVID-19 closely. To date, TOAF59 will be moving ahead in July 2020, and will notify stakeholders and the public immediately of any changes. The TOAF team cares about the health and safety of our artists and the public we serve. Please visit our website to read our official statement on COVID-19.
We extend our congratulations to each of the 780 artists who submitted their applications to TOAF59 before the deadline. Thanks as well to our network for spreading the word about our Call for Artists.
In these uncertain days, we hope to add a moment of inspiration in the way we know best: by introducing you to the talented artists who tell our human stories though unique perspectives. In this spirit, we will continue sharing stories of TOAF artists and ask that you consider their works as a gesture of support and encouragement in these times.
In this issue of our newsletter, we would like to introduce you to Cheryl Rock, an award-winning artist who tells stories of our shared human experience through her intricate hand-cut paper works. Her powerful imagery earned her the title of Best of 2D Works and a cash award of $2,000 generously supported by Nicholas Metivier Gallery.
We hope you find joy in discovering her work.
All the best and stay safe.
