Portrait of a Quarantine

Donation protected
Art for Social Distancing - by artist Mary Pow
An artist response project to the COVID-19 pandemic Stay Home orders.

The goal of this project is to spread a little joy, raise funds for artists affected by the pandemic, and create an art exhibit in the process. 

The Project: Your Quarantine
This is an interactive project. Using photos submitted by you, I will create portraits with soft pastels in order to showcase what individuals are doing during quarantine. 

​I need your help for this project. Who are you quarantining with? What does your lockdown look like?
Take a photo of yourself or someone you're with at home and submit it here.

Every time a $50 milestone is reached, I will create a "Quarantine Portrait" from one of the submitted photographs. Any amount will help me reach my goal. If you choose to donate $50 or more I will use your own submitted quarantine photo. The resulting artwork will be even mailed to you free of charge. Anonymous donations and donations smaller than $50 will be used for portraits chosen at random. 

Art, Links, and Submissions
I use soft pastels to create my art. Visit my website to see my work


Artworks, photographs, and works in progress will be shared on social media. Follow along on Facebook page or Instagram  (@marypowdesigns for both)

How will the funds be used?
I will be using half of the funds raised to help support my art studio at this challenging time. The other half of funds raised will go to the Emergency Relief Fund for Artists through Springboard for the Arts, to help other artists whose income has been affected by cancellations due to COVID-19 precautions.
