Downtowner Gallery premieres two new art exhibits

October 1, 2020 | In In the Press

The Downtowner Gallery has reopened on Main Street with two new art exhibits.

“Pandemic Perspectives” showcases visual art reflecting local and area artists’ personal response to the quarantine or art that is inspired by some aspect of the global pandemic.

What is the impact of this major pause and re-set for our planet? How has it changed your life or your relationships? These artists express their personal answers in this exhibit and this show will serve as a historical record of a very strange, but shared social experience.

A virtual reception for this exhibit, featuring exhibiting artists, will be announced soon.

“Gifted Sight” by Kristopher Muldrew seeks to honor the legacy of this late, local painter by featuring over a dozen of his works.

As a companion exhibit to “Pandemic Perspectives,” “Gifted Sight” offers its own perspective during this pandemic – a family grieving the loss of its beloved family member during a time of isolation and their wish to have his art and his name continue to live onward through being exhibited.

The arts community in Round Rock expresses its condolences to this local artist’s family members.

The Downtowner Galley is envisioned as a gathering place for creativity and the arts in its many forms. The Gallery hosts art exhibitions, educational opportunities, and events, setting the scene for meaningful interactions among artists, students and community audiences.

Visitors are required to wear masks within the gallery and maintain social distancing to ensure a safe environment to enjoy the artwork.
