The 2021 NOVA Mason ONLINE Foundations Exhibition

October 25 – November 3, 2021

Rewire –

2020 challenged the global community in unique ways. There was fear, confusion and the loss of human contact and connection. But throughout this global test of humanity there was also inspiration, innovation and the discovery of new ways to connect, new ways to be a community. Rewire acknowledges the many ways our daily lives have changed while celebrating the new discoveries made during turbulent times. From the increased need for digital connection to personal revelations all artwork addressing change or growth was encouraged.

R. C. Barajas Reorientation Collaged Hand-colored silver gelatin print 14.25″ x 22.5″ “We’re not the same as we were before this time of breaking apart and reassembling. Slightly better yet slightly the worse for wear, we’re still here, still possessing of an undeniable beauty, of strange colors and rough unfamiliar shapes. Putting our pieces back together, we find we hardly know ourselves.” Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA)
