In these uncertain times, New York-based P·P·O·W Gallery continues to support local artists with a new online viewing room titled “Days Soon to Fade.” The presentation features works on paper by Kyle Dunn, Aaron Gilbert, Elizabeth Glaessner, among others.
A majority of the pieces spotlighted in the digital presentation were made amidst the ongoing health crisis or selected with the coronavirus pandemic in mind. Take for instance the namesake, figurative work for the show: Devin N. Morris’s Endangered Were These Days Soon To Fade. Intarsia 5, 2020 . The artist explores the challenges that arise when confined in a domestic space, both physically and psychologically. The composition features a topless male subject sitting on a chair and facing the window in a living room space.
“These works reinforce the gallery’s longstanding commitment to championing artistic practices that explore issues of race, gender, sexuality, and social equality,” explained P.P.O.W. in a statement.
P·P·O·W will donate a portion of all proceeds towards the Urban Justice Center’s Domestic Violence Project. The organization brings together lawyers, advocates, social workers and volunteers whose mission is to help survivors of domestic violence and their children live free of violence and abuse.
Head to P·P·O·W’s website for more details and check out select works above.
Elsewhere in art, acclaimed graffiti artist Eric Haze has been stuck at the Elaine de Kooning House due to COVID-10 lockdown measures.

In an effort to help those most effected by our current public health crisis, we will donate a portion of all proceeds from this ongoing online viewing room to the @urbanjusticecenter’s Domestic Violence Project. Known for his strikingly empathic and uniquely personal portraits, #GeraldLovell relies on his tightknit, #Atlanta-based community of creatives to drive his burgeoning painting practice. Given his dedication to this community, Lovell is committing additional proceeds from #DaysSoontoFade to the @acfb. With schools, restaurants and other businesses shuttered and countless workers facing the reality of layoffs, furloughs and missed paychecks due to COVID-19, the Atlanta Community Food Bank is rapidly mobilizing to keep meals on the table for seniors, children and families across the state of Georgia.
