COVID-19 Update for Members and Patrons
The Governor of Texas has lifted restrictions allowing retail stores to open at 25% capacity. Local school districts have extended their closures through the end of the school year. Fort Bend County remains the sixth highest county in Texas with new reported cases. As such, the ALFB Board has decided to take the following precautions and actions:
Fort Bend Art Center and its Gallery remain closed:
FBAC and the Gallery will remain closed to the public for a while longer for the safety of our volunteers. We just don’t know what the next few days or weeks will bring. We will inform you as to when we feel we can safely reopen.
General Meeting scheduled for May is CANCELED:
HOWEVER, we will offer our routine demo via ZOOM. Holly Hunter Berry will present, “The Glorious Mess” on Wednesday, May 20 from 10:00-11:30 a.m. Just email by May 15th and put “Glorious Mess” in the subject line to receive a link to the demo. Remember, you must be a member of the Art League Fort Bend to receive the link and you must request the link to the demo by May 15, 2020.
Point of Sale training sessions for Gallery Workers- Rescheduling now:
These sessions are rescheduling now as Zoom training. A training presentation is posted to the website Click here to review it. New dates for training will be announced soon.
ALFB Spring Art Show and Exhibit - CANCELED:
We made the difficult decision to cancel the Spring Art Show and Exhibit scheduled for April 4. Registrations that had been received will be returned to you. We know you may have expected this, but also that you have been working hard on the pieces you planned to enter. We encourage you to save those for the Fall show which will be scheduled for later this year.
The 2020 LSAG Annual Convention also had to be cancelled. The 2021 LSAG Annual Convention is scheduled for May 21 and 22, 2021 at Lone Star Convention Center with qualified art from 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 being eligible to show in 2021.
Quarterly Gallery Art Change Out and Gallery Meeting canceled:
These will be rescheduled. Gallery Workers will be notified of a reschedule date as soon as possible.
The Art League of Fort Bend Board of Directors is monitoring the ever-changing situation very closely. You will be informed when we are ready to welcome you back into the Gallery. In the interim, please take advantages of classes being offered and challenges being offered on our Facebook page.
Please remember to follow the CDC guidelines for handwashing and social distancing. Stay safe, everyone!
Please stay safe, everyone.
President Brenda Bowman and your ALFB Board
