BEHIND THE LAS CURTAIN
Isn't this an odd battle? Covid-19 is a paradox -- if we behave as though it is all around us, it won't be around us at all - maybe.
The Board of Directors is responsible for the stewardship of the Lunenburg Art Society, and we are trying to make the best decisions for LAS in the short and long term.
A small group of committed volunteers has been monitoring our position constantly. You will read messages from two committee Chairs in this Issue and we are grateful for their continuing commitment.
We hear more news about the pandemic every day, though we don't necessarily know more - or maybe it's just not what we want to hear. We previously advised that we would not re-open before the end of May. Now, based on statistics
revealed April 14 by the NS Chief Medical Officer, Dr Strang, we know we'll be closed at least until the end of June, likely much longer.
This has serious implications for our gallery as an enterprise that earns the bulk of its income in the tourist season but has expenses year-round.
The Board will meet via Zoom on April 22. We'll review all our programs, the low number of members stepping up to lead them, our historic goals and objectives, and what our best options are in the short and long term.
Keep the faith: there will be great art shows in our future!.
