Paint Ontario 2020 update – April 29th
Update: April 29, 2020
The Show WILL go on!
With the prospect of COVID-19 restrictions being eased in the coming weeks, Paint Ontario’s hosts, the Grand Bend Art Centre and the Lambton Heritage Museum, are preparing for the show to go ahead! The timing of this will be dependent on directives from the government of Ontario and in strict accordance with the careful re-opening of public facilities. As you are no doubt aware, the situation is changing almost daily and there is no way to know exactly how it will unfold. Dates have yet to be confirmed but the organisers are hoping that an opening sometime in June will be possible; however, we are realistic about the possibility that this timeline might have to be pushed further into the summer.
Of course there will be some changes, including no opening gala, to ensure physical distancing and the full safety of visitors, volunteers and staff at all times. Artists’ demonstrations and workshops will be pre-recorded and available on-line as well as being played on a rotating basis during the run of the show.
One thing that hasn’t changed is the quality of the paintings: The judges assure us that the 2020 entries are every bit as good as those in last year’s widely praised show!
Watch for further updates as plans become known. For more information, contact:
