A Special Message From Preston Singletary and the Upcoming Exhibit at the Traver Gallery

A special message from the Studio about the Coronavirus and the upcoming Traver Gallery exhibit.  

A Special Message From the Preston Singletary Studio

Hello from the Preston Singletary Studio,

Hard news first……... My heart goes out to my own father who has been diagnosed with cancer at 80 years old. If things weren’t strange enough, now the staff at the Studio are actively practicing social distancing after having built a large body of new work for the Traver Gallery for my upcoming "Artifacts From a Future Dream" exhibition.

Very soon the Traver Gallery and I will be virtually sharing my latest work with you. We are going to shoot special videos and provide details about the latest collection of art that we’ve produced here at the studio. It is my hope that sharing this with you will be welcomed, and a small distraction to the isolation we are going to have to endure for some time. Please check out these upcoming videos on either my Facebook or Instagram accounts.

A personal note of thanks to my studio team (of hard working people!) We are figuring out ways to keep on working here at the studio as we monitor what is going on here in the state of Washington as well as around the world. At the moment, it seems that we will try to continue to create art work while the world is waiting for this virus to run its course.

In my view, my only option is to continue to create positivity and beauty as best I can through my art.

Our hearts go out to to your families and to my close friends, artists and musicians that will be having a hard time getting through all this. To the arts organizations, restaurants, everyone within the matrix of our society, especially the health care workers who are on the front lines trying to help in this crisis, thank you!

We hope that you and your families are healthy and safe.

- Preston Singletary and the PSI Crew
