Yes, we are a couple of months into the pandemic partial lockdown, and it looks like we’re setting up to have a bad round 2, but we are still planning on having an in-person, live Juried Art Show in October.
However, we do have to make other plans, in case the Show is cancelled. Here’s our current thinking:
- Artists will be offered the opportunity to enter a juried online version of the NJAS, hosted on our website and promoted on our social media feeds. We will try to have it promoted by other local partners, such as the Town of Newmarket. The fee will be reduced, of course, and the deadline extended.
- The Co-Directors, Peggy and Dave, are being trained by Whova in delivering online events. We hope that this will teach us how to host a Virtual Opening Gala (BYOB, for sure!)
