Library Arts Center is CLOSED until further notice to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The Library Arts Center Board has made the difficult choice to CLOSE the Arts Center, gallery & studio, through at least May 4th. ALL STUDIO, MUSIC, and YOGA CLASSES WILL BE CANCELED DURING THIS TIME. We understand that there is a possibility that this date will have to be extended, and this will affect many of our upcoming events. We will be sure to keep you posted regarding any updates to our many upcoming events. Check back here--on our website--for the most recent updates.
AN UPDATE on the Black & White Exhibit:
In light of developments with COVID-19, the Library Arts Center is taking a brief pause while planning this show. Staff and board are assessing when the Center will be able to physically open the gallery as a community gathering space for this show. We may need to push the start date of the show a week or two later, and we may need to have a closing reception instead of an opening reception. If developments in the coming days make it clear that the gallery will need to be physically closed longer, we will create a digital exhibit with those interested in participating in that format.
In the meantime, we are taking a few days to figure this out before we announce which pieces will be included in this exhibit. Thank you for entering this show, and for your patience while we sort this all out. We will be in touch with further information next week.
Thank you for your participation!
