ART WITHOUT ADMIRERS – THE HUGE SHIFT FROM EARLIER MARCH

Creativity tests positive – How has the global outbreak wounded art gurus and their spirit? Dispersed in the hushed streets of a district in Central America, lie various galleries and studios that were once vibrant and exciting. Devotees had their calendars marked with the upcoming shows and open-house exhibitions until one day in March 2020, when everything decided to shut down. San Pedro, home to numerous artists, performers, and their workspaces, decided to become silent once the shocking virus took over the world. Covid-19 caused many events to cancel. Many studio owners worry that the pandemic could lead to damaging the sales and danger of their long-term survival. Recession could cause galleries a lot of failures, due to which, artists no longer would have a place to show their work. Galleries operate as spaces for the public to heal and find inspiration from the art. Without galleries, the public will be deprived of a major cultural element, which is significant in these times of crisis. Our gallery, Downtown Books and Art Gallery has suffered similar circumstances. There is no way to predict what we can expect to counter in the future. However, all of us require to devise certain plans if we are to continue our businesses. The problem is, how will the authorities counter such a concern? Or will we see more of the initiatives crumble under the pressure of low revenue? Find out more about how Covid-19 has affected the art galleries on the new blog post on our website.
