New Members-Only Portal

The Feb. 8th virtual general meeting saw the launch of SPAC’s new members-only portal which will host resources, such as back-issues of Art Chat, governance material such as Board minutes, and even a forum for the exchange of art ideas, art-related tips & techniques, as well as a buy & sell section. And more will be coming as we ramp up this member resource.

To join, you must apply (so we can limit access to just SPAC members). To do so, click on the Login link on the side bar, or select the Login item from the About menu up top.

SPAC 2021 Spring Show Update

We are extremely disappointed to announce the cancellation of the 2021 SPAC Spring Show in April. There are numerous reasons:

  1. The new unknowns of the Covid-19 variants appearing, combined with the problematic delivery of vaccines, makes the future safety of a large gathering impossible to predict.
  2. Our host venue, Mary Winspear is governed by those same unpredictable facts, which makes their ability to direct our activities increasingly difficult.
  3. We could continue to plan month by month, but we feel that putting our efforts into a virtual show, with a sure outcome, would be time better spent.

Thanks to all my volunteers who have done so much work already. Much of this preparation will be used in our next show!
