Summer Sabbatical: No Meeting in June and July

Summer Sabbatical: No Meeting in June and July

Art Circle is going to take a sabbatical in both June and July. Our hope is to have an in person meeting in August.

Dear Art Circle,

There is no June First Friday tonight on Friday, June 5, in downtown Bloomington. However, if you are looking for an art-themed outing, both Inside Out:Accessible Art and Main Gallery 404 have reopened their galleries to visitors wearing facemasks with social distancing while admiring the art for sale.

Even though quarantine ended on May 30, there are still restrictions about groups of more than ten meeting in person. Art Circle last met in March. Our April and May meetings were cancelled due to the governor’s shelter in place order and COVID-19.

Jacob’s Well, Art Circle’s meeting place, is remaining closed to in real life gatherings as a protection to their parishioners who are more vulnerable to coronavirus. In this time of transition, from Phase 2 to Phase 3 (where we are now in re-opening Illinois), Art Circle is going to take a sabbatical in both June and July. Art Circle will not be holding a monthly meeting in June and July. If there is art news to share we will continue to email you the details.

Our hope is to have an in person meeting in August. Our hope is to meet in person on September 10 with the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) as a guest speaker from 7:15-8pm with art sharing to follow in the time remaining. We hope Illinois is able to safely move to Phase 4 of the re-open Illinois plan this summer.

REMINDER: Sign up for the next art show at the Community Cancer Center from September 2020 to January 2021 is complete. Artist confirmation emails will be sent in August, when we hope to know for sure CCC #2 2020 will be able to be installed on Monday, September 14 as planned now.

We hope you are able to make art during this time of summer sabbatical. We miss seeing you in real life and gathering together monthly at Jacob’s Well. Our prayers are with you and for you.

Blessings,
Janean, LizBeth, and Angel
