Are we cancelling any upcoming events?
No.  Our events will be modified.  We are proceeding with our 2021 Exhibit Schedule.  In lieu of our traditional Opening Receptions we are opening exhibits online and, when available, offering Private Appointments on Opening Day from Noon – 7:00 p.m.

 

You can still enjoy the exhibit from home. We will post the exhibit online the same day the exhibit opens. After all, the show must go on…online!
