17 to 18 April 2020
Gunning Arts Festival committee has decided to postpone the physical Gunning Arts Festival to comply with national precautions to help control the spread of COVID-19. However, recognising the even greater need now for some community building and uplift, the committee has resolved to produce an online Festival this year.
The Gunning Arts Festival team will create and source video recordings of the various events currently scheduled for the Festival. These will be uploaded to the Gunning Arts Festival website www.gunningartsfestival.com at the time the event is currently scheduled on 17 and 18 April.
The Wearable Art exhibition and the community visual art exhibition will be curated as online exhibitions. Visitors to the Online Festival will still be able to vote for their favourite artwork as part of the planned People’s Choice Award.
There will be a video showing how to create a nuno felted silk scarf in place of the planned workshops, and a video tour of the historical display planned for Pye Cottage in Gunning.
