 The Lunenburg Art Gallery Society Board earlier canceled all scheduled art shows in the gallery for the 2020 season due to Covid-19 restrictions and the lack of volunteer participation in the running of the gallery. 
Since that time, the Board has struck a committee to look into the viability of running the Lunenburg Art Gallery for the year 2021. 
The committee has been encouraged by a positive response from the Lunenburg Art Gallery Society membership when asked if they would be willing to serve as gallery attendants during a two month MEMBERS’ SHOW in 2020. 
The Lunenburg Art Gallery will follow government protocol to help in the prevention of Covid-19 while in operation. 
The committee is looking forward to signing up more members to fill in time slots for sitting this show when artists register their paintings.

VIRTUAL STUDIO TOUR:
TAMAR DRUSHKA
"Here are some pictures of my Studio/Kitchen/Dining Room/Office/Zoom Cafe Meeting Room/Boardroom. The fresh flowers are vital as they remind me that every thing is temporary and also beautiful. Despite my best efforts, I am busier than ever; mostly what I’ve accomplished is to rework some of the paintings that I started in February at my DesBrisay Museum Show and to attend https://workshop.art2life.com/kitchen-table-art-project-2020/ which keeps me hugely inspired.
 Thanks for all your continued work with the LAG. I hope that it survives in some brave new fashion. You had accomplished SO much in the last couple of years; let’s hope it can return again."
VIRTUAL STUDIO TOUR:
CURTIS BOTHAM
"Not much has changed for me during the coronavirus lockdown. Besides working on the regular load of commissions, I'm beginning a new project which I'm calling "The Cost of Living." I recently applied for a couple of grants from Arts Nova Scotia to help fund the project. The series will examine our material culture and the rising cost of basic living, as well as the toll our consumption takes on various environments and communities. I had planned this series before the coronavirus became global, but the project has taken on special significance in light of the pandemic.
The big piece I'm working on measures 8 feet by 5 feet. It's based on an old sketch I did of a woman working in a news stand, surrounded by essentials, mass media and addictive substances. I think it serves as a good metaphor for anxieties inherent in the current situation. The News Stand drawing is being made by covering the paper completely in charcoal and then using erasers to 'draw' into the charcoal. It's kind of like drawing in reverse! Hoping to have this done some time in July.
More of my work can be seen at

That's the end of our Virtual Studio Tours for now.
We hope you enjoyed seeing what your fellow artists have been up to while we've all been sheltering (and maybe creating) at home.
We're showing Members' art again in our gallery,
so please come and see it in person.
LUNENBURG ART SOCIETY
STATEMENT ON RACISM
At its June 15 meeting, the LAS Board of Directors unanimously approved the following statement:
One of the essential principles of the Lunenburg Art Society has been to welcome all persons as members, and to include their art in our shows without judgment or prejudice.
With this universal membership principle, we have survived 48 years, and earned the ‘Best Gallery’ designation in 2019. We are proud of all our members.
Systemic and direct racism against persons of African descent is being protested all over the world. The Directors of the Lunenburg Art Society state
unequivocally that we do not condone discrimination of any kind, including racism. 
Black Lives Matter.
How's the pandemic going for you?
I hope this lovely weather will warm your heart as well as your toes.
Get some sunshine on you.
