After collaborating together during the lockdown through a local art initiative, 18 Guelph artists are showcasing their work online. 

Co-Create was launched by visual art-based Otherwise Studios and music-based Bumaroo in June to encourage local artists to work together, stay connected and create meaningful art. 

Artists were provided with resources, guidance, and deadlines to bring discipline to their work during isolation through the initiative. 

The nine finished art pieces available to view online include music videos, paintings, sound and visual art projects with an in-depth analysis.  

The projects are:

TOMATOES  - A collage by Andrew McArthur and Perry Gasteiger

POOR CONNECTION - A visual story project by Emma Ongman and Nick Grier
