Throughout the pandemic, many turned inward as we searched for touchstones to ground us, but we also sought solace from friends and family. Such a dynamic prefigured Compass Rose. Over the past eighteen months the six artists in this show shared their doubts, fears and achievements. We provided support for each other and the connection was especially welcome in the absence of art openings, gallery talks and studio visits. A compass rose points towards the four cardinal directions to help navigate the physical world. The art in this exhibit was made in part to help navigate the pandemic, and to find our center with the help of our friends. The way we cope and the art we create exemplify the universal desire to find direction and clarity in the midst of chaos.
