Pick Up Times
Pick up your art project kit, vouchers, etc, at the High Street Gallery from 5pm-7pm on Wednesday, October 7 or Thursday, October 8.
We know some of you may not be comfortable or able to pick up your kits at the High Street Gallery. If that's the case, then we can mail you your vouchers and information for the trivia night! We can't mail you the paints, but you can still participate in a fun evening with the DSA!
Supporting the DSA
Profits from the evening will enable the DSA to continue their work of "connecting, supporting, and educating artists and the community." Throughout 2020 the DSA has hosted professional development workshops for artists as well as material-based workshops to introduce artists and the community to new materials. Utilizing zoom and other technology the DSA was able to quickly maneuver much of their programming to the virtual realm after COVID-19 shut things down. The High Street Gallery happily reopened at the end of July and continues to host exhibitions in a safe and socially distant environment. Enjoy the current exhibition, Illuminate!
