Corona Virus (COVID19) Updates

As COVID19 continues to disrupt our lives and change the way we live, AGL will continue to provide up to date information regarding how Guild activities are impacted. All updates and changes for individual AGL events will be posted on the Calendar as quickly as possible. We are very happy to say that AGL has begun to slowly resume some of its activities. All activities will be conducted in accordance with appropriate pandemic guidelines at the time of the activity. We realize the importance of art expression in all of our lives and we ask for your patience and support with the on going changes.

Workshops: AGL has begun holding workshops on a limited basis with local interested artists at the Studio in the Park. All workshops will be conducted in accordance with appropriate COVID19 mitigation guidelines at the time of the workshop. The number of participants for all workshops is limited to ensure social distancing, and face coverings are required. For up to date information on scheduled workshops visit the Workshops page for details.

Exhibits: We resumed exhibits at Independence Park Theatre Gallery with the Winter Member Show on January 14. However, due to lack of interest/participation, the Spring Judged Show scheduled to be hung on March 11 is cancelled. The plan is to resume in May with the Spring Member Show. We hope by then many more people will have been vaccinated and everyone will feel a little more comfortable “getting out”. See the annual exhibit schedule on the Exhibits page.

Studio in the Park – The Studio in the Park has begun holding open studio sessions again on a limited basis: Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11:00 – 4:00. Face coverings are required and social distancing observed. The Studio is open to members only; it remains closed to the general public. More info about the Studio in the Park.

Picture Day – Members who want to have paintings photographed must drop off paintings at the Studio in the Park on the Wednesday before Picture Day (the 3rd Sunday) between 11:00 am – 3:30 pm and pick up their paintings the following Wednesday between 11:00 am – 3:30 pm. Face coverings are required in the Studio. More info about Picture Day.

Stay safe, practice healthy hygiene, and keep painting!!
