2020 SPAC Spring Show Cancelled
It is with regret and caution that the Executive of the SPAC board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 SPAC Spring Show due to the Covid-19 novel coronavirus. Artists will be refunded their submission fees and Patrons likewise. Details about the actual mechanisms and timings of these refunds will be forthcoming over the next couple of days. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Also, if you brought in a donation for the draw at the show, it will be available for pick up on Tuesday morning, April 7, at the Mary Winspear Center.
It is with regret that we announce the cancellation of several workshops due to concerns about the health and safety of our members:

- Yupo workshop with Tamra Sheline (May 30-31)
- Colour, Contrast and Cacophony! (May 23-24)
