“Lexington in the Time of COVID-19” is an ongoing project of uncertain length by Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova, who are Transylvania professors and social practice artists. They document the ways members of the Lexington, Kentucky, community are enduring and sustaining themselves and others during the quarantine. On March 16, Kurt and Kremena began photographing individuals, couples, and families outside of their homes (always from a safe distance). During their visits, the collaborative artists spend time talking with the people they photograph, writing down notes to better understand and share our lived experience with social distancing. These notes become stories that are shared on Facebook, and they are the source of text paired with each image in this exhibition. As presented by Morlan Gallery, “Lexington in the Time of COVID-19” is a selection of images from Kurt and Kremena's larger project, which will continue until we are no longer asked to socially distance and have put an end to the spread of the virus.

“Near and Far” is an exhibition of fine art prints created for an international print exchange hosted by Morlan Gallery. Print-based artists were asked to create works centered around the theme of: “How do we sustain ourselves and others emotionally and physically?” In the past several months, it has become increasingly important to understand our needs and seek to connect with and support each other. “Near and Far” showcases prints from a variety of printmaking media related to ideas such as home, isolation, place, play, monotony, longing, racial justice, vulnerability, distance, new and old habits, meditation, reading, gardening, safety, mental health, screentime, the collective unconscious, community, change, progress, separation, technology, and loved ones.
