The 1770 Art Show has been cancelled for 2020
It is with great regret that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 1770 Art Show due to be held in May due to the Coronavirus outbreak. This is an incredibly upsetting decision and the committee thought long and hard about alternatives but with the uncertain nature of the viral infection this was the only sensible conclusion to safeguard our artists and the public. Given the most recent government recommendations and the high level of uncertainty around future safety protocols, transport of works, domestic travel, and public gatherings, we see this action as necessary.
The 1770 Art Show has fast become a valued and prized part of the Central Queensland art scene. While we have contemplated ways we might push on this year, there is no way to suitably mitigate the risks. Public safety must always take priority.
We are confident, along with many others in this dreadful position, that the best outcome is to ensure everyone’s safety this year.
Our objective remains to present a high-quality Art Show and Quilting Exhibition to the Queensland community and the many visitors who travel to Agnes Water to enjoy our exhibition in May. The team would like to thank our many sponsors and contributors and we can assure you that we will be planning a spectacular 2021 show.
All entries already received will be fully refunded.
