    TW Fine Art is pleased to present Caught Up in a Lockdown Art Affair, a group exhibition of works created by fifteen artists over the last 18 months of the global pandemic. COVID-19 and the ensuing lockdowns shook people from their regular routines, and while many artists took a break from their practices and studios, others embraced this time to lean into their creative work, pushing their output further than ever before. This show celebrates these new works, and the bright spot that came out of an otherwise difficult year. The works span drawing, sculpture, paintings, embroidery, prints, photographs, ceramics and more, showing an impressive range of mediums and styles. In their own way, each artist expresses a unique conceptual and aesthetic perspective, imagining new possibilities for world building that can arise post-lockdown.
