Due to the unfolding situation with respect to COVID19 (Corona Virus). The Committee of Management of the ASA has had to reluctantly make decisions which affect the membership, and visitors so please take the time to read the following:
1 The cancellation of the Armadale City Shopping Centre Exhibition. This will not now take place.
2 The voluntary closure of the Arthouse on Hobbs for two weeks, commencing Saturday 21 March at 12 noon, until Monday 6 April. This means that there will be no classes or workshops running during this time and the Arthouse will be closed up. These dates may be extended if the advice from the Government changes in relation to this situation. For any emergency access to the Arthouse during this time please call Trish 0455 552 842.
3 Further to the two week Arthouse closure, the Committee has also decided to cancel the April Members’ Meeting which was set down for Thursday 9 April.
4 The Arthouse Office will close at 12 noon tomorrow (Wednesday) and not re-open until the end of the closure period.
The Committee has not taken any of these decisions lightly and felt that it had to be proactive in its approach to the above matters. Members have expressed concern recently about COVID19 and the possible health effects, which has, in turn, created uncertainty and anxiety. We have many members who fall within the older demographic, some of whom have underlying health issues, or have family members with health issues.
I do hope you understand the Committee’s decisions and I also hope that you all remain safe and healthy during this uncertain time.
