IMPORTANT NOTICE - THE ARCHIES
The government has announced the shutdown of all non-essential services.
Our art gallery falls into this category, therefore effective immediately, the gallery will be closed.
We have not received all entries to the Archies and with the gallery now closed there will not be the opportunity to deliver them.
It has been decided to postpone judging to a date in the future. If and when regulations are relaxed, you will be informed of new details and the opportunity to deliver your entry.
Those entries already at the gallery will be kept securely until judging can be done.
Facebook and our website will be updated with any developments.
We thank you for your understanding in these very trying circumstances.
