Welcome to IMPACT

As our 2020 Chaiya Art Awards had to be postponed until May 2021, we decided to invite previously shortlisted artists to submit their creativity into the Coronavirus Pandemic we are all living through and to respond to:
The impacts of Covid 19, around the world, on families, society, health care and beliefs.
The result was a 3D virtual online exhibition that was open from June – Sept 2020 and visited over 3,200 times. It featured 60 artworks including painting, drawing, video, photography, sculpture, glass and mixed media, which combined to make a reflective and thought-provoking exhibition.
Artworks were for sale, raising money for two charities; the Coronavirus Appeal – Run by the National Emergencies Trust and Shout.
Here is a taster of some of the works featured:
