W ell, here I am, writing about toilet paper in the newspaper. Like me, a lot of us are still coming to grips with our strange and surreal, new coronavirus quarantined world.

We’re not alone. Artists, like Joshua White, a photographer in The Galleries’ Tone exhibition, has also found himself working in ways he never thought he would, and in a medium he never thought he would — toilet paper.

Many artists are struggling right now to make ends meet, and although Joshua says he and his family will be ok, he’d like to help out others in need. That’s why he launched the Coronavirus Toilet Paper Tintype Fundraiser. Here’s how it works:

Pay $50 (or pay what you like if $50 is too much) for an 8x10 tintype of toilet paper, maybe abstract, maybe still life-esque, dealer’s choice.

100 percent of proceeds (minus shipping) go to NC Artist Relief fund (or similar artist relief fund of your choice). Learn more about the NC Artist Relief Fund: https://www.ncarts.org/nc-artist-relief-fund

Visit Joshua’s tintype selections on instagram @joshuawhitephoto or email him at joshua@joshuawhitephotography.com.

Many organizations may have postponed or canceled their events, as a precaution to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus. We advise that you check with the event’s organizer to make sure its activity has not been canceled.

ONGOING

Activities in The Galleries; Monday through Friday, 9 am — 5 pm during exhibitions; Art Box — Boxes full of art materials and instructions provide guided art projects for children of all ages when they visit The Galleries. The projects relate to the current exhibition, and the artwork can be made right here in The Galleries, on the front steps, or outside on the lawn. I Spy Scavenger Hunt — Get a scavenger list at the front desk, then search the art in The Galleries for everything on it. It’s a fun game for all ages, and a great way to pick up the details of artwork. Think about it — Our guided questionnaire is full of colorful pictures of artwork accompanied by conversation starters such as, “What questions would you ask this artist if he or she were here right now?” This activity is great for anyone who wants to examine artworks in a new way.
