Supporting efforts to "flatten the curve" of COVID-19, Access Gallery is now closed to the public until further notice. We will be cancelling all remaining events related to Mmm... and plan to host similar gatherings (Crit Nites, Drawing Nites, Brain Lunches) at another time. The Members Show & Sale is now finished. We will also be postponing our next exhibition Wanderings and the related talk as part of Capture Photography Festival. As a public space which holds our community valuable, we feel a responsibility to practice and promote collective care to keep us all as safe as we can. Let's do what we are able to in each of our lives to reduce the impact of COVID-19.
We recognize that there are many people in this time who can't take such measures of self-isolation—those who work in essential services, aren't able to or supported in working from home, face economic or housing barriers, those for whom self-isolation isn't a safe option, and more. For this reason, we urge those of us who can, to stay home as an act of solidarity and care for those who can't, for those who will bear the brunt of the impact on the health care system, and for those whose immune systems are most at risk.
❤️ support your immunity to support those more vulnerable than you. ❤️
If you feel able to support Access as we head into spring, please consider donating, purchasing a tote bag (featuring Punchline by Elizabeth Milton) or publication to pick up at a later date, or simply join as a member.
We look forward to seeing you when we can gather safely. Until then, reach us by email, and follow us on social media for updates.
