COVID-19 – SKETCH fundraiser impacted.
Ace has donated a recent mixed media work on paper for the SKETCH 2020 fundraiser in support of Galerie SAW Gallery. The Auction was to take place in March 2020, but due to the global coronavirus pandemic, Galerie SAW Gallery cancelled the event and announced that it will develop an alternative event that may involve an on-line auction. SAW Gallery posted on their Facebook Page on March 12, 2020:
In light of the latest developments on COVID-19 and in response to concerns expressed by members of the public, SAW regrets to announce the cancellation of its fundraising event SKETCH, which was scheduled to take place on Friday, March 13 from 7PM to 2AM. As an alternative to this event, SKETCH will take place in a different form. We thank you for your understanding and for your continued support.
All funds raised through SKETCH 2020 will go toward SAW’s new circumpolar research and production space, the Nordic Lab. The Nordic Lab is the second and final phase of SAW’s ambitious expansion project and will feature a new studio for visiting artists and a state-of-the-art screen-printing production facility.
