*UPDATE: May 18, 2020* Based on new federal and state guidelines, Featherstone Center for the Arts will remain closed until further notice. All class registrations within March and April cancelled due to the COVID-19 closure will be credited for future use. We are doing our best to reach out to each student. We are encouraging class credit, but if you require a refund, please send an email to Posie Haeger. As Featherstone and many other organizations are struggling with loss of business and revenue, we also welcome a donation of your registration fees, if possible.
March 15, 2020 Dear Friends,
Due to concerns related to the health and wellbeing of our Island community, our visitors, students, instructors, artists and staff, Featherstone will be closed from Monday, March 16th through April 6th. During this time, our gallery will be closed and classes will be temporarily postponed. We will keep in touch via email and update our website and social media platforms with any changes to this schedule.
Featherstone is actively working to keep creativity flowing. Our mission to engage, enrich and connect our community through the power of art and creativity remains strong during this time and we look forward to sharing creativity with you in new ways - via our website and social media. Though we have cancelled the opening reception for our upcoming show "Here Comes the Sun: The Color Yellow" originally scheduled for next Sunday, we will be here this Monday and Tuesday to receive work from artists. We look forward to sharing this next exhibit over a digital platform - stay tuned!
During uncertain times, we feel that art and creativity can console and connect. It is Featherstone's intent to continue to provide a creative outlet for our community and keep creative and curious minds engaged. Please continue to visit our website, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter channels for creative inspiration and for any changes to our schedule.
Please be well, and check in with us with any imaginative and inspiring ideas!
