This year that promised us 2020 vision with such optimism has been a cruel challenge - but, just  maybe, there’ll be a more optimistic future born of that challenge. I’ve survived this dreadful year through the generosity and love of amazing family and friends and, significantly, through the deep appreciation and contemplation of works of art. How many of us have stayed sane with creative pursuits as arts consumers and makers? The visual arts have suffered unforgivably from Covid and government neglect yet are certain to underpin a better society and our emotional, mental and cultural health.
