Newsletters, present and past

Hello everyone,

In these unusual circumstances, we sincerely hope that you are keeping well.

As we promised to do, this newsletter is to let you know about our next show which opens April 9, 2021. It is with our usual optimism that we introduce 18 exceptional artists who we hope you will be able to visit at our stunning show at Glass House Estate Winery in south Langley.  Our website:   www.westart.ca   provides more details about the show as well as our covid preventative protocols.

Over the past few months we have been pro-active by adjusting our show plans, moving the date and incorporating all Covid restrictions and requirements.   We fully support the restrictions of our provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and embrace her now-famous call:  "Be Kind, Be Calm, Be Safe”.  Today we are hearing of variants and a possible third wave which may delay the loosening of restrictions on event and gatherings.   Although our April 9-11 show is fully planned at Glass House Estate Winery, we know there is a possibility that we will have to cancel that show.

This will be our fourth year partnered with the Langley School District Foundation. The amazing work that this foundation performs in support of students can be seen at: https://www.langleyschooldistrictfoundation.com

During our show, artists will donate 25% of their sales at the show, to this foundation; this means, when you purchase art, you are also helping in this important work.

As you can imagine, we disliked the idea that we might have to cancel, and so, some time ago, we decided to develop a contingency plan that would pivot our show into an online format, running April 9-30, should that be necessary.

Despite these uncertain times, I hope you will find a degree of certainty with us because, NO MATTER WHAT, the next West Fine Art Show opens on April 9, 2021.

For now, we are sending you our show poster so that you can see our artist line up and make plans to visit our show and meet the artists and their artwork at Glass House Estate Winery ...or...at our online show.

If the moment arrives in which we pivot to an online format, we will send you an update with more details.

Please forward this newsletter to friends and family, and thank you for your support.

President, West Fine Art Show Society
