Still time to bring in your work – Exhibit opening – Summer Camps
At Chester Art Centre, we want to continue to reassure you that we have been carefully following government rules and recommendations to manage the risks of COVID-19. We are working hard to ensure everyone at the centre is safe and healthy. That means when you come by, we recommend you wear a safe (but lovely) mask, sanitize your hands, and keep the fashionable 6-foot distance.
EXHIBIT OPENING! Drop-in opening reception July 9, 4-6 p.m.
Doors Wide Open runs July 9-23. We’re so excited to share the wonderful collection that is coming in the doors – we’re planning a drop-in soft opening of the Doors Wide Open exhibit on Thursday, July 9 from 4-6 p.m. Listen to live music by Jamie Junger, wander through the exhibit and enjoy some refreshments as we move everyone through a safely distanced event.
If you can’t join us on opening day, not to worry – there’s plenty of opportunity to come in and see what everyone’s talking about!
Exhibit hours are:
Monday to Friday: by chance, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Saturday July 11 and July 18: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sunday July 12 and July 19: 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Still time to enter: If you’ve been thinking about joining our exhibition but aren’t quite sure you should…the answer is YES. Bring in your creative work, as we’re showing a full range of types, skill, ability – and it’s all gorgeous! We want to see what you’ve been up to in this time of isolation, quarantine, social distancing and home-time.
We are opening our doors to everyone to bring us what you’ve been working on, to help us launch our re-opening exhibition.
Exhibition pieces can be brought to the Centre (please call ahead 902-275-5789 to arrange drop off) any time until July 6, 2020.
