Covid 19 Closure and Cancellations

20 Mar 2020 7:24 PM | Anonymous

The Joe is currently closed due to the  COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 virus's potential impact on volunteers, members, artists, and patrons is not something we take lightly.  We have been working with Forgotten Coast  Cultural Coalition (FCCC) in regard to the rescheduling of their Plein Air event.  This will have an impact on how we reschedule our shows as well. At this point, everything scheduled at The Joe will be cancelled until the appropriate health organizations have deemed the threat posed by the virus is past.

Thru The Lens Photography Show - CANCELLED
We have explored different options for this upcoming show--from rescheduling, canceling and holding it as an on-line show.  However, the logistics of creating an on-line show are not within our skill set at this time.  Rescheduling is still an option but, again, too many unknowns at this time. We will be contacting all the artists who entered with a number of options.  Our thanks to them for supporting this show.  We are all disappointed to miss their incredible photography.

Supporting The Joe
As a non-profit we depend on our member support. We having been growing strong roots in our communities and will recover after all this.  Our revenue stream from shows and sales of art work will be severely impacted by the COVID-19 health concerns.  Paying the bills has just gotten a little harder. So, when your membership comes due, please respond to that notice and renew.  Your support is so very much appreciated.  

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Use this time to make art, work in the garden, do spring house cleaning, read that stack of books or magazines, try new recipes, FaceTime your loved ones, take walks on the beach (6 feet apart), go fishing, binge watch your favorite shows, hug your pets and appreciate life.
