"In thinking of the current events happening in our lives today, global pandemic and black lives matter movement, it made me think of how art plays an important role in people’s lives. With sheltering in place and social distancing, art is a lifeline to the outside world, to an internal world, to another world that takes you out of the 'Groundhog Dayness' of the current times. In the Black Lives Matter movement, art has been pouring on the blank canvases of storefront plywood protections in support of the movement. People are having their minds and eyes opened to the racial injustices that have been perpetuated for centuries. My artwork is in response to the solitude and isolation one can feel in quarantine and as a person of color, my hope that change is coming for the better." —Catherine Gutierrez
