Despite tons of distractions — rampaging COVID, an election that feels like it has not yet ended, the 15th straight week of foul weather — our “06880” artists came through.

We’ve got a few more submissions for this week’s gallery. This week’s theme seems to be “nature.”

Naturally, all are imipressive.

Perhaps there were other things going on last week. Maybe our artists were distracted.

Whatever the reason, we had only 3 submissions for our weekly art gallery. All however are timely.

One is political. One is autumnal. One is social. It’s a nice juxtaposition.

As always we welcome submissions from all artists. Works should be inspired by, relevant to, or somehow, in some way, connected to our current lives. Student art of all ages is especially welcome.
