50 Prints Fundraiser – Postponed


As the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold, many charities are being cautious and cancelling, limiting or postponing events and programs that allow them to continue their charitable mission. Community support is needed now more than ever to ensure that organizations like Open Studio can endure during these trying times. Open Studio feels that the health and safety of our artists, board, staff, donors and community is the priority. We have therefore decided to postpone our major annual fundraiser, 50 Prints, until further notice. We will connect with everyone involved with an update soon. It is likely that we will mount the event in the fall. We are also limiting public events and classes, and monitoring studio usage. We encourage you to take a moment to consider giving a small donation to show your support during this difficult time, even $5 makes a difference.

Thank you.
