– To our Valued Patrons and Partners –
Times are uncertain, but we certainly appreciate you!
As we approach the opening of our 2020-21 Exhibition Season, we continue to follow the restrictions put in place by our public health officials. Until Stanislaus County records lower levels of community spread of COVID-19, our operations are limited.
Our fall exhibitions, Cut Up/Cut Out and In This Time will be installed in the expectation that we will be re-opening our gallery to the public as soon as allowed. All public, in-person events have been cancelled for the foreseeable future, and spring and summer exhibitions have been moved online to our Virtual Exhibition Gallery.
We have introduced some fun virtual Family Friday activities with videos and live content on our Facebook page. We are also moving forward with a webinar format for the final two presentations in our Children’s Mental Health lecture series, presented in partnership with EMC Health Foundation and sponsored in part by Ali Cox & Co. More details on dates, times and registration are on our Facebook page and on Eventbrite.com.
With limited hours and capacity, we have an active schedule of fall art classes and our Allen Family Members’ Gallery & Gift Shop is open for retail customers.
Our annual fall fundraiser will be an online auction of art and antiques in October. Our spring fundraisers, THE ART OF DESIGN HOME & GARDEN TOUR and the related TWILIGHT TOUR, have been rescheduled to May 2021. We are looking forward to sharing lots more details soon!
Keep an eye on our Facebook page or sign up for our email list for the most up to date information, or call our office with any questions.
With heartfelt thanks to our wonderful 2020-21 Season Sponsors, loyal members, and generous supporters, we look forward to being able to see everyone soon. Please help slow the spread!
