Fear is an insidious thing. Yes, we need to take precautions during this time of crisis, but we also need to remember that we are living in the greatest industrial nation in the world today. I believe that we need to take a cue from our grandmothers and grandfathers who fought in WWI and WWII, and take to heart this quote from Winston Churchill:The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
Now don't take this as an excuse to ignore your safety or those of others. In accordance with the Emergency Guidelines, many of April's art events have been postponed or cancelled.
From: Gail Daley, President, Clovis Art Guild
We regret to inform everyone, that due to the current crisis, the Veterans Memorial building has cancelled all events in April. This means that the April meeting, and the Old West Show have been cancelled. We hope to set up the Old West Show later in the year after America has gone back to normal.

It is with deep regret that I have to make the following announcement. With the announcement from the Governor of California, placing all non-essential members of the public to “Shelter in Place”, the Board Members have decided to close the Art Gallery until the order is lifted. This will end the Mini show for 2020. All entries will be returned and awards mailed as soon as the Shelter in Place order is lifted.
Please let Carol Sill or myself know if you have any questions. Thank you.
