(ASBURY PARK, NJ) -- For many of us, this past year has unleashed emotions and thoughts that can feel chaotic or out of control. Whether you've gotten stressed scrolling through conflicting accounts of current events, getting interrupted by your kids on a video call, sharing a small space with your partner, trying to figure out how to pay next months rent, worrying about your loved ones' health, or simply trying to make decisions in the face of the unknown, we've all had a chaotic year.
Art 629 Gallery is looking for artists who use the meditative power of creating art to find peace in the chaos. What color is your chaos? What shape? What texture? This exhibit, entitled "Peace in the Chaos," will be focused specifically on artists who convey their emotions through the creative process. If you are an artist who managed to cope with this year's chaos by creating, send them your work for consideration to be in the upcoming exhibition. The Deadline for Submissions is Saturday, April 24.
