Sign up for the best newsletter EVER!

Everything is cancelled as far as the eye can see, but a new online art gallery lets your eyes see new work from Bay Area artists from the comfort of your shut-in shelter in place. The creative studio Musepop just launched the Local Love online art exhibit, a rotating weekly gallery jam-packed with the work of recognized Bay Area artists, plus ways to buy their work and support them during these times. If you’re a creative artist who needs support, you can submit your work and they’ll set up an online gallery for you. If you just want to sit and be dazzled by the arts, Local Love will unveil new online exhibits for more than a dozen different artists every week.

Their first exhibit is already live, and each of those squares above represents well-known Bay Area artists, many of whose works you’re familiar with from back when we used to leave the house. This week’s featured artists include Vau de Vire Society, Flux Vertical Theatre dance company, the creative experience agency Capacitor, and an array of nearly a dozen visual artists and movement creators, with links to their websites, social media presence, and donation pages.
