Drawing Challenge IV and X, Online exhibition, Jason McCoy Gallery, 2020

Pat Badt is please to be included in the Jason McCoy Gallery Drawing Challenge IV and X, an on-line show during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Drawing Challenge is a weekly call by the gallery for artwork that responds to a specific poem, song or sentence.

Drawing Challenge X:  

"History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helped to perpetuate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."

- Martin Luther King, Jr., 1963 -

Drawing Challenge IV: 
"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth
find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -
the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter."

from Rachel Carson's (1907-1964) "Silent Spring" (1962)
