Moore ArtShare – Covid Edition 11

Issue 11 – October 1, 2020

Presented by

Welcome to our 11th issue of Moore Art Share – COVID Edition, a digital collection of creative works shared from the Moore County community documenting how we responded during the pandemic. Scroll down to see the new submissions. They are listed in no particular order. And, if you are so inspired, please submit your own art.

Special thanks goes to everyone who shared their COVID creations, the Arlington Public Library’s “Quaranzine” for the inspiration to do something like this, and to The Sway, The Pilot, and Sandhills Magazine for spreading the word. Stay safe, keep sharing your creations, and enjoy!

“Don’t Get Around Much Anymore”

This 1942 classic standard by Duke Ellington expressed the bitter-sweet sentiment of many military spouses of WWII. Although party invitations would be extended, those faithful spouses would often respond, “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore!”

“The Green Turtle”

Acrylic on canvas, 11″ x 14″

The Green Turtle is a bar in Fernandina Beach, FL, a favorite haunt of a dear friend who lives on Amelia Island. When I visit her, having an adult beverage at The Green Turtle is always on our list! Since I am unable to visit her, painting this place is the best that I can do for now.
