Capturing our new normal through Zoom drawings - The Snapper

Dr. Leslie Gates is an art professor at Millersville University who has been portraying this new Zoom world through a series of drawings featuring her fellow colleagues.

“This is why these people exist in the world,” she says. “The tricky part for me is that I’m really acting like a mirror and it’s sometimes hard to look at yourself in the mirror. I care about what these people think, and I do feel like this is, in some ways, a gift to our community: to have chronicled this experience”

Over the past six months Dr. Leslie Gates, a Millersville University art professor, has been capturing moments of what this new world looks like through Zoom.
