Following the recent World Health Organisation declaration of a pandemic and information received from the NSW Department of Health, Hornsby Art Society has taken the decision to postpone the current HAS Volunteers Exhibition.
We have taken this decision to protect our members many of whom may be at a heightened risk if they were to contract the virus and also to ensure that our exhibition is seen by the widest audience as possible. We believe the next two-three weeks will be a vital time to slow the spread of the virus and to enable our health services to adequately deal with the presented confirmed cases.
Our intention for this year is to combine our Volunteers Exhibition which was scheduled for March, with our HAS Members Exhibition, which is scheduled to be on exhibition from 16-26 July. We are hoping that the Coronavirus situation will have sufficiently resolved itself by this time.
We thank all members and volunteers who have submitted an entry for this Volunteers Exhibition. We will hold your Entry Form until the Members Exhibition and will advise you of the new delivery, pick up and opening event details in a future email closer to the date.
We hope that you all support our decision which we believe is in everyone’s best interest.
Our thanks for your understanding – the team at Hornsby Art Society
