The New York Artists Circle
Lost & Found: A Personal Vision of the Pandemic

An Exhibition and Series of Four Inspiring Roundtable Events

The NY Artists Circle presents the work of 117 selected artists who reveal what is truly important in their lives, as they cope with waves of loss as well as surprisingly positive personal change during this Pandemic time. They give us a wide-ranging array of personal explorations on the theme of Lost and Found, from the concrete and tangible to the sheer existential.

The exhibit includes the work of Westbeth visual artists, Elisa Decker, Diana Jensen, Christina Maile, Charles Seplowin, and Barbara Slitkin.

Exhibition dates: May 1 – Aug 31, 2021
Online viewing begins Saturday, May 1st.

Go to New York Artist Circle Curated Show.

The show is divided into four unique sub-themes focusing on different aspects of what is Lost and Found: The Personal, The Iconographic, The Societal, and Artistic Discoveries. Each offers thought-provoking and inspiring reflections on our shared human experiences during a Global Crisis.

New York Artists Circle ­– Our Story

We are the New York Artists Circle (NYAC), a group of professional visual artists who connect to share information, opportunities, skills and resources. Exhibiting and selling artwork are priorities. Since 1996, we have built a collective bank of expertise through monthly meetings, an active listserve, a dynamic social media presence, and a group website.

We support our members in their professional growth, fostering groundbreaking ideas, fresh approaches and innovative collaborations and technological advancement. Working together in community helps us to meet the challenges we face in our solo practices, proving that there is strength in numbers!

We invite you to browse through our searchable registry to find artists for exhibitions, collaborations, media and other opportunities. Prominent curators have created both online and “brick and mortar” exhibitions by selecting work from our website and many of our artists have received commissions through this interface.

Artwork on our site is for sale, rent or licensing. Contact artists directly through their individual profiles in our searchable registry for purchase details, and for any other professional inquiries. For general inquiries, our administrators can be reached through the Contact Page.
