Salon de Corona
This collective of women artists — Juliet Lockwood, Shelley Borg, Sherry Flashman, Rachel Cox, Sheila Golden, and Sarah Lyberger* — began gathering online during the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ranging in age from 22 to 79, they benefited from daily invitations to challenge themselves with themed references, photos, paintings, and drawings. Each artist brought her own gifts to the collective’s intentional, supportive, shared space. This group show features work that brings tragedy to light, inspired by feelings of uncertainty, isolation, and unrest. The Salon de Corona still gathers, evolving in membership but persevering in its mission to stay real, celebrate growth, and nurture creativity.
*Other participants, also integral to the group, are not represented in the exhibit.
