Artists' responses to Coronavirus. From the rainbows thanking the NHS in windows to graffiti murals inspired by the global coronavirus pandemic, all sorts of artists have used lockdown to capture this period of our lives. While some works draw on the sense of fear and isolation felt by many, others are inspired by the heroes who have emerged during the crisis. Some works even centre around lockdown itself - from boredom to chaos to stockpiling.

This online exhibition features images of work in a wide range of media, submitted by artists around the Oxfordshire & Northants region, including young people, on the theme of ‘Art in Isolation’. We asked artists to reflect on the effects that the Coronavirus has had on them as individuals and society in general.

Each artist has written about their work and their own experiences during lockdown - click on the button 'Artist Stories' for full details. Some works are for sale direct from the artist.

We hope that by sharing this exhibition with you, it brings some joy and also some relief that others have shared similar experiences.

Organised by the Friends of the Heseltine Gallery. Artists interested in exhibiting in the gallery in future can make contact through the website. We hope to reopen the gallery to visitors in Autumn.
