COVID-19 Outbreak update - September 2020:

All events now delayed until 2021. 

We hope all our members have a Happy and Prosperous 2021 and continue to wish all our members, exhibitors, suppliers and their families well during this unprecedented crisis. 

Artists, in particular, seem to fall between the Government’s help schemes. We have spoken to hundreds of artists who are struggling on a day to day basis, we can only hope that things get back to normal as soon as possible and we wish all of you good luck.

At last, we have seen an end to the disastrous year of 2020. Currently, as we are all aware the virus is still running amok. Despite this, there is real hope on the horizon, with the advent of the new antivirus inoculations. According to government data, we should start to see the benefits by easter and start to return to normality by late summer/Autumn.

This is great news as now we can now press for dates with our venues and suppliers, meaning we should have new dates for the postponed exhibitions by February.

We will continue to ere on the side of safety without wanting to compromise on the success of the exhibitions. We continue to work tremendously hard to re-organise our events; however, this work remains problematic as currently many of our artists are international and would not be able to attend the shows due to travel restrictions in the UK and other countries meaning potential empty spaces at the exhibitions.

We are now rearranging all of our active events for 2021, for those who have booked events they are able to attend next year’s exhibitions with no price increase, or we will offer a credit to be used at any other event. As ever organising these events takes a considerable amount of time and effort, with a new start in 2021 and without the shadow of Covid-19, we will now press ahead to solidify dates and venues.

Like others, our company has faced unprecedented commercial stress having postponed or cancelled 18 events in 2020, decisions which have not been taken lightly. We are still here and excited about the future including our exhibitions, services and products.

To help this we have commissioned and will be opening a new online website where our current exhibitors who have had events rearranged will be able to offer and sell their work free of any commission or charges. This project will come online in January 2021 and will require our exhibitors to upload their work and enter their details to the new website.

We are determined that 2021 will be a success for our artists, our members and our company. View our associate company's re-start initiative for free to enter events in late summer 2021, as well as interest-free credit schemes designed to sell more art online and at exhibitions.
