GARNER Arts Center, an interdisciplinary arts, culture and creative education center based within the GARNER Historic District in New York’s lower Hudson Valley, announces an open call for a new virtual photography exhibition as part of the #GarnerAtHome initiative. The topic for this juried exhibition is RESILIENCE in 2020. We are interested in seeing interpretations of the theme as expressed in the time of COVID-19, created by contemporary photographers at all levels of professionalism and experience.

Is resilience one’s ability to adapt to a changing world? What about us is ever-enduring? This exhibition seeks to share the resilience of the human spirit and the places we find inspiration, beauty and strength in the darkest times.

“A good half of the art of living is resilience.” Alain de Botton.
Show us what the concept of RESILIENCE means to you.

Although we cannot visit museums or galleries in this time of social-distancing, art and culture continue to be vital as a means for us to connect, share and experience. GARNER Arts Center, through #GarnerAtHome, invites artists from the Hudson Valley and Tri-State area, including New York City to submit high resolution digital photographs for consideration in this virtual exhibition.
