On-line that is! 

It’s a very different world from a year ago and so many things have changed. This is the 10th annual SQUARE FOOT SHOW and we are pleased to announce that the show goes on! We will be hosting a virtual show and on-line sale from November 20 through December 20, 2020.

The Opening Gala and Weekend Show at the Art Alchemy Studio that was regarded as “the art party” of the year will happen – it’s just going to look very different as we comply with Covid 19 restrictions related to gatherings and social distancing. November 20 – 22 viewings will be by reservation – more details to come as the event draws closer.

In the meantine… get your brushes out and get busy! Submissions close October 31 at midnight.
