CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
PLEASE NOTE, ALL GUILD OF WILTSHIRE ARTISTS WORKSHOPS AND EVENTS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE


Message from the Chairman (17 March 2020)

In the light of government information and advice and the restrictions announced yesterday afternoon, particularly those focused on social distancing, it is with great regret that the Committee and Officers have agreed to cancel all Monday evening events at Hook and all Friday/Saturday workshops at Broad Town until further notice. We must recognise not only that a large proportion of our members are in the high risk group but to leave our events open would mean generally going against official advice which is highly inadvisable for obvious reasons. We are obviously sorry to do this and realise that the only opportunity that some members get to do art is at the workshops and can only hope that you are all able to find a quiet space to carry on painting and drawing until the world gets back to normal. In summary, with immediate effect all Guild of Wiltshire Artists workshops and events are CANCELLED until further notice. Meanwhile, look out for more e-mails as we explore the possibilities of staying in touch and even "working together" using Facebook and our website.

UPDATE from the Chairman, 14 May 2020

Due to the uncertainties in respect of Coronavirus the committee has regrettably decided to cancel our Summer Exhibition at St Peters Marlborough. Cancellation has now been made. Options will be kept open for the time being on our planned Autumn exhibition in October at Malmesbury. We hope you are all keeping well.
