Richard Muldoon, ACI President

I posted an update about the current status of Arts Connect Inc. activities. Because of State and Federal Governments restrictions we have suspended all our events, workshops and exhibitions until further notice.

Below are the main points of that update.

Open Studios: This event has been cancelled for May/June 2020, and we will reschedule for early 2021 once we can clear some dates.

Exhibitions: Currently all exhibitions and planning are on hold until we have a clearer view of what we will be allowed to plan for later in the year, and into 2021. This will mean the Mary Cairncross Reserve Centre exhibition will be cancelled unless we are informed otherwise over coming weeks.

Sculpture On The Edge: Our annual sculpture prize is currently cancelled for 2020. Should things turn around in the near future, we may be able to deliver this event for October 2020, however we cannot guarantee this.

Newsletter: Our monthly newsletter will continue so please let us know of any news you might have to share with the wider arts community. Contact Jacky with your ideas.

Arts Connect Inc, will be working on other ways of offering value to our members and friends within the parameters of the restrictions due to the virus. It will be difficult for us to deliver our usual program, but the Newsletter continues and we will be working on online content. We encourage all members to support us by retaining your membership and when due, by paying your small membership fee contribution to help us resume our usual program once it’s safe to do so.

Stay safe, everyone.

Richard Muldoon
