The SWCA Misericordia Hospital Show take down is at 10:00 - 11:00 am on Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2021.
Looking Back Looking Forward
We had one to two shows every month for SWCA in 2020. Even with COVID, so more limited traffic of the shows. One painting that was sold was by Teresa Graham. The new owner said that she’d never paid so much for a painting but she just had to buy it, it was so beautiful. It was close to $600. Congratulations Teresa!
This coming year will continue with Covid19 challenges. We could still have shows if SWCA members are interested. Currently the Misericordia Hospital has a SWCA Show until Feb 3, 2021. We are also booking a show for 44 Capital Boulevard in 2021.
What do you, as a member of SWCA, think about exhibiting in a SWCA Show this coming year of 2021? Please contact Eveline Garneau if you have any suggestions for shows for 2021.
