The coronavirus crisis continues — and Westporters continue to make art.
Once again, we’ve got all kinds in our Saturday gallery: photos, watercolors, paintings, acrylic, chalk messages and more. Each week, our readers show us their creativity and spirit; each week, we gain insights into their moods.
And our own.
Please keep sending your work. Professional, amateur, old, young — we want your paintings, collages, sketches, photos, sculptures, cartoons, whatever. Student submissions are particularly welcome.
The only rule: It must be inspired by, reflective of, or otherwise related to the times we’re going through. Just email email@example.com.
“A Wish.” Karen Nordberg took this photo before she lost her grandmother to Covid19.
“A Hole in My Heart.” After her grandmother died, Karen Nordberg walked again. She found this.
“GFS 4S 2020.” Elizabeth Chang created this in response to Greens Farms Elementary School art teacher Cameryn Robinson’s request to make art that brings the school together. Elizabeth — a 4th grader in Mrs. Stroud’s class — says that each small nail represents the home of a classmate. The large one is GFS itself.
“Feet,.” Self-portrait by Benj Serfaty, a 6th grader at Bedford Middle School.
“Corona Cootie.” Mary Ann Nielson reinvented the traditional game “Cootie.”

Love the Oyster Gatherers. Is it possible to get a print copy?
Please use your full name. I’ll ask the artist.
Hi Dan while that game may seem funny it is actually perpetuating an unproven conspiracy theory
It’s funny tho! 👍🤣
I just love these little art shows. Thanks, Dan!
Thanks, Stacy. I’ll keep posting as long as you all keep creating!
