Exhibitions hit by coronavirus go digital instead

You can take a virtual tour of the Lettering Arts Trust online exhibition of John Skelton's work.

An increasing number of exhibitions that could not be held this year because of the coronavirus pandemic lock-down have gone ahead digitally.

The American Coverings exhibition in New Orleans; the New Stone Age exhibition at the Building Centre in London sponsored by international stone supplier Polycor and Leicestershire firm The Stonemasonry Company; ‘on form’, the exclusively stone garden sculpture exhibition at Asthall Manor in Oxfordshire; The Lettering Arts Trust’s exhibition of John Skelton’s work that was to have been held at the Trust’s studio in Snape Maltings, Suffolk, this Spring. These are some of the exhibitions that you can visit online.

Coverings even changed its name to Coverings Connected for its online version of more than 900 exhibitors, videos, product galleries and presentations.

Rosie Pearson has re-launched her ‘on form’ website for her exhibition to give a better showing of the artworks that would have been seen at Asthall Manor this year to elevate the online experience.

It is a selling exhibition and the pieces on show will be able to be bought from the website when the exhibition opens online on the same date it was scheduled to open at Asthall Manor – 13 June.

The Lettering Arts Trust has provided a virtual tour of its exhibition, called Innovative Forms – The Lettering of John Skelton that was intended to last at Snape Maltings until the end of June.

You can guide yourself around the exhibition and click on information panels to read details of the exhibits as you come to them.
