Virtual Exhibitions


The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way we as a community interact and share experiences, information, and even art. ShenArts faced these challenges and developed a series of exhibitions that were only available virtually, with no physical installation. This opened up our exhibitions to many who had no other way to share their work in the pandemic, and proved to be a wonderful way to share these shows and the artwork of our community beyond the local audience.

The success of these Virtual Exhibitions has led ShenArts to create virtual versions of all of our physical exhibitions as well to take advantage of this extended reach as well as add purely virtual shows to our permanent roster.


Past Exhibits

Life Aquatic

August 18, 2020


This exhibition explores artworks created by artists across many mediums which embrace the element of water. Showcasing 40 works by individual artists, the images seen here urge the viewer to consider the various perspectives and characteristics of water, its many forms, and our relationship with it.

ShenArts Quarantine 2020 Show

April 3, 2020


The ShenArts community might not currently be able to gather to experience works of art, but local art is still thriving. Our member artists are hard at work creating during these unprecedented times, many doing their part to offer beauty, understanding, and escape for all of us through their artwork. ShenArts hopes to help fill a void that social distancing has created by offering the opportunity to participate virtually in exhibitions, sell their work via our website, and interact with our community directly. Now more than ever the need to explore and express through art has a great impact on us all, and those who create these works need our support to manage these unusual times until we can once again be together.
