Physical galleries may be closed, but online ones are still open, and they’re putting on exhibits you can enjoy from home. One of these galleries, called Collective 131, focuses specifically on art by women.

“Collective 131 was founded in 2018 as a springboard for women artists. We believe in making art accessible and putting women in the forefront of the industry,” reads the gallery’s website. “Our online platform can help new and seasoned collectors alike find high-quality, affordable works to diversify their collection.”

Right now, Collective 131 is showing the online exhibition Personal Space, which highlights artists’ responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. All the artwork in the exhibit was made during the pandemic. Much of it shows indoor scenes and women hanging out alone.

Other pieces directly reference the pandemic, like Mary Younkin’s “The Holy Trinity,” a still-life showing hand-sanitizer, face masks, and gloves.

A series by Elizabeth Tillemans depicts houses with human legs — running, sitting, standing, doing group gymnastics. In her piece “Wash Your Hands,” a sink washes its own human hands.

All the pieces in Personal Space are for sale, with prices ranging from $100 to $3,800 (most on the lower end of that spectrum)

Outside the exhibit, Collective 131 sells paintings on canvas, works on paper, and 3D objects, like vases, plates, and ceramic fortune cookies.
