Prospectus delay is due to the Diocese asking, in view of a resurgence of Covid-19 and its variants, that no large groups convene in Queen of Angels Church indoor spaces.
Thus, we are having to change parameters of the two upcoming shows.
No one knows what coming months will bring and all indoor facilities available may have similar issues. The shift it may be a plus because it would be harder to change later. Pastor Dowd is assisting with an outdoor location, which we truly appreciate. Outdoors has its challenges, but will be healthier for artists and guests, and provide more time and more space.
So, we are planning:
1. QUEEN OF ANGELS CRAFTS & ART PRE-HOLIDAY FAIR will now be on Sat., Nov. 13, outside in a large, paved area off 43rd Street between Skillman and 43rd Avenue. We are working on tents. We will again feature a “enter day-of-fair wreath competition” in any medium, judged by guests, with a small cash prize.
2. SUNNYSIDE ARTISTS FINE ART COMPETITION will occur in January with a topic of “Self Portrait” in any media. Entries will be voted in our blind jury method by participating artists. First, second and third Luke Adams Art Prizes, at $1000, $500, and $300, will be bestowed at opening Wine Reception. All of 25 finalists displayed at the local restaurant for five weeks.
Stay tuned for more info and email SunnysideArtists@gmail.com to receive prospectus for both shows!
