Better Late than Never!
All good plans have their kinks! And ours were no exception. We had hoped to take possession of our new gallery space by the beginning of June, which would give us four full weeks to paint, decorate, accept artwork, set up displays and get ready to welcome the public.
Too good to be true? Of course – we should have known. Between folks on holidays, lease negotiations, committee work load and other obstacles the universe provides, we were delayed in signing the lease and getting the keys.
However, our fantastic teams at Coastal Community, our wonderful landlords, and the dynamic Rainforest Arts committee, all worked diligently to resolve every road block.
Today, June 15th, 2016, we were handed the keys!
Although this leaves us only two short weeks from our target opening date of July 1st, our team is up to the challenge. And challenge it is! During these next two weeks, two of our committee members are away, due to circumstances beyond their control (well, we COULD have asked Diana’s son to delay his wedding…but…).
Not to worry…we can do it! Just watch and see! Until next time!
