ArtSpring Newsletter July 20, 2020

Dear Friends,

With our Covid Safety plan in place we are looking forward to a gradual reopening.

On July 27 the Painters’ Guild exhibit begins, daily from 11am-3pm. Please enter from the back of the building directly into the gallery. Covid safety protocols will be in place.

Next week we launch The Pandemic Limerick Project in collaboration with the Salt Spring Island Public Library, and Salt Spring Island Foundation. Submit your five line limerick between July 27 and August 14. Limericks will be judged by three Salt Spring authors and two prizes will be awarded. BC residents and all ages welcome.

Artcraft is open daily 11am-4pm at Mahon Hall. Congrats to the Salt Spring Arts Council for continuing with this long running project despite current challenges.

With all best wishes,
Cicela Månsson
Executive & Artistic Director, ArtSpring
