Many art shows and exhibitions have been cancelled or delayed as a result of Covid-19. At this point many galleries and organizers are waiting until there is more clarity in order to reschedule. A few exhibitions that are showing online are listed below.
Looking ahead, there are some very exciting opportunities being planned both domestically and abroad for later in 2020 and into 2021. I will update information as it becomes available.
