Best Solo Art Exhibition

Not only was Karen Seapker’s collection of large-scale jewel-toned paintings of earth goddesses and abstract orbs a breathtaking display of talent and warmth — it also functioned as a centering force in the middle of unexpected chaos. The artist’s studio was directly in the path of the March 3 tornado, which destroyed the building days before Circuities was scheduled to open. By the time the Zeitgeist exhibit closed in late April, the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic had set in, changing everything. If there were ever a stage to experience the chaotic episodes of life, it should be filled with the paintings Seapker made for this show. LAURA HUTSON HUNTER
