VAC Studio Artists:
Tim Postell, Veronica Samuel and JJ Jiang
Summer Greetings from the Village Art Circle Studio & Gallery!
We hope this message finds you safe, healthy and even happy in the midst of this chaotic time!
Despite having shut down the gallery since March 15, and having had to cancel or postpone many of our classes and workshops, we want to let you know that our studio artists Veronica Samuel, Tim Postell and JJ Jiang are all safe and staying busy creating new art work. Our spirits remain high, and we are looking forward to the day that we will reopen the gallery and welcome you back. IWe also want to let you know that in the month of April, without much of fanfare, the Village Art Circle quietly celebrated its 7th anniversary. This is a milestone we are very proud of, and we are emboldened and determined to press on. Here we want to extend our gratitude to all of those who have supported our cause and cheered us on through all these years!
Though the date of reopening the gallery is not set yet, proactive planning is already under way. We will try to find a prudent way to gradually reopen the gallery along with many classes, workshops and group gathering activities. We will communicate details via future emails, our VAC Facebook page, as well as updates to our website.
