10th Ongoing Conversation: ABYSS A Group Art Exhibition

10th Ongoing Conversation, ABYSS A Group Art Exhibition, will be held in Roswell, Georgia USA, June 01 – July 30, 2021. ABYSS features 34 multidisciplinary and fine artists from around the world.

ABYSS is demonstrating the fortitude of the human spirit. An abyss is a dark and seemingly endless chasm; it is the distinct differences between two bodies. From this bottomless pit arises 34 voices, united in saying: “Together, we are stronger. Together, we overcome.”

The show juxtaposes the dreary climate of our world today with the creativity and community we can achieve through artistic expression. Amidst the struggles of our world’s uncertain future, ABYSS presents works of joy and sorrow, of peace and anxiety, of isolation and communion. The works shown here are proof that creativity prevails over life’s obstacles.

🔸
“Chapter III – Drawn Together” is on view from June 09 through July 03, 2021 at @goodnewsarts , High Springs, Florida, USA.
🔸
For many of us, our lives have been turned upside-down by the Covid-19 pandemic public health emergency, but the fundamental human need to create remains intense – even if it is on pause for some of us momentarily. I, @soude.dadras urged artists from around the globe to join me and other artists in bringing attention to the power of the human spirit through creativity across the globe with our current project Drawn Together. Drawn Together is a collaboration of hope, of honor, and of storytelling for these extraordinary times.
🔸
The goal of the “Drawn Together” project is to record for the world how the creative community persevered together through the tumult of change, even though we remained largely apart.
