SALA 2020 IS GOING AHEAD!
SALA administration has advised that the festival is going full steam ahead in 2020.
There will be a few changes this year - including free registration for Groups like ours ! As well, the registration deadline for our overall group entry has been extended until 31 August, which will give us more time to get things organised.
SO .... Burnside Painting Group is intending to hold our Annual Exhibition this year as part of SALA, as in previous years.
We'll keep you updated as things unfold.
RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID -19)
Above: Walking - a nice activity to do during Coronavirus quarantine!
What is happening with regard to the Coronavirus (COVID19) restrictions in terms of activities for BPG members at this time?
CLASSES: We hope we will be able to resume scheduled classes soon. Members who enrolled and paid for any cancelled classes will receive a refund.
COMPANION PAINTING: Members are still free to meet in the large hall and use the facilities on Monday mornings at their individual discretion and risk. St Matthew’s hall is now providing paper towels and hand sanitisers in the bathrooms. PLEIN AIR PAINTING GROUP: The Plein Air sessions are currently on hold.
FURTHER UPDATES: The BPG Management Committee will keep you updated on BPG activities as the situation develops. We aim to reschedule classes and workshops, and reinstate the Companion and Plein Air Painting Groups as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.
