The Annual Exhibition
had been cancelled
due to Coronavirus precautions
The Hythe Art Society Committee had to make the decision to cancel this year's Summer Exhibition
due to take place at the end of August.
Due to the contiunace of the pandemic and the enormous number of risks associated with setting up, running and taking down the exhibition we did not want to put anyone in danger. We were conscious of the age range in the Society and that many may have still been shielding or isolating throughout the summer.
We also had a low response to those who would have been willing to exhibit, and together with the potentially low footfall, it could have been a huge financial loss. We are exploring the way forward with regards to future exhibitions.
We reviewed how we would hold future meetings and as the situation progressed, we were in touch with you about these decisions.
Our president has continued to search the archives and send out newsletters to keep you updated.
Thank you for your understanding. It has not been easy for us to come to this decision, but we believe it is the right thing to do at this time.
Demonstration & workshops were cancelled at the time
