Curator Zsudayka Nzinga Terrell presents “Distance Learning”, featuring artwork from 21 Washington, DC-area art teachers examining isolation and mental health during the 2020 pandemic and social unrest – from the closure of schools in March to the killing of George Floyd through the presidential election. Through portraiture, sculpture, print, digital and abstract art,  and spoken word, the artist convey their observations of culture, how they managed the time in quarantine after schools closed in-person learning, their continued connection to the youth and communities they teach, and the importance of having this opportunity to focus on creating their art.  For some of the teachers, this is their first time showing their art in a gallery, while others are seasoned professionals. All their stories were amplified as communities the Coronavirus hit hardest and for whom the social issues were deeply personal.

 

 

Featured artists include Drew Anderson, Bomani Armah, Adia Harris, Danielle Hawkins, Randall Holloway, Janai Johnson, Flonora Merritt, Joy Nutt, Asma Page, Zalika Perkins, Reshada Pullen, Tiffany Raquel, Rhonda Silver, Patricia Smith, Carol Solinger, Elizabeth Stewart, James Terrell, Randy Walters, Jimise Winston, Judy Williams and Malandela Zulu.
