2020 was a strange and challenging year for many of us. Here at your Arts Center we have had to do some serious problem solving, evolving, and sometimes just plain old improvising. We are grateful for all of our fabulous members, dedicated volunteers, great board members, patrons and friends. In this end of year post I want to focus on a review of the year, remembrances of those we have lost, and our resolutions for the new year.
The year that was
The Center hosted some awesome shows this past year. A few of them even happened in the the times B.C. (Before Covid). We had glorious openings for two of my personal favorites, Lori Biwer Stewart and Karl Haglund. Little did we know that these would be the last times we would be able to safely gather for art, wine, cheese, beer and fellowship. In May we had to scramble to cover the walls when our scheduled artist was is lockdown. Were we not going to have a show? No way! Emily and I dug into our own collections and validated our art purchases and collected pieces from over the years. Good thing we like to buy art.
That month we also started our continuing live video openings. It was a little bit rough at first. Oh, who am I kidding it's still an evolving thing. From that month on we used our technology to slowly grow our online presence. All of the other exhibits are available on our face book page or here on the blog.
Thanks to our featured artists who helped us with the live shows!
