April & May Cancellations and Virtual Exhibit April 1-10
April 1, 2020 @ 10:00 am - April 10, 2020 @ 4:00 pm
Our April and May meetings and juried show Earth, Form, Fire were cancelled to prevent the spread of COVID-19. but PoMo Arts Center is taking our show online. Go to https://pomoarts.ca/digital-gallery to see images and to hear some of the artists talk about their work.
The post below is from Janice Cotter, the amazing gallery manager at Port Moody Arts Center. Sincere thanks to her for her hard work.
“We have 8 potters from the exhibition who are participating with interviews for our first digital gallery experience. The interviews will be posted on our social media channels between April 1st – 10th, at 10am each day. People will be able to post questions for the artists in the comments section until 4pm. The artist of the day will respond to the questions and the answers will be posted in a video at 6pm. I hope you’ll check in each day to see the posts.
PoMoArts posted teaser videos on Facebook and Instagram yesterday. I’ve put links below and it would be wonderful if you could share it with your online community and let them know the artist video schedule and also let people know they can post questions for the artists.
Also I wanted to share the Tri-City News article from this week. This is the online version that came out today.
