Given the current state of affairs with the COVID-19 we want to assure you that we are taking pre-cautions and wish to proceed with the process of switching out the February-March show and installing the April-May-June show with as much caution and wisdom as possible. Anticipated switch out date is April 4th, Saturday from 10am-12pm however we understand that some artists will wish to continue to stay at home, or continue to have their artwork from the Feb/March to carry over into April-June show. All of this is fine but please communicate with Jeanne by phone or email to make an appointment. Jeanne is more than happy to assist. 772-579-1529 or email FORTPIERCE.ART.CLUB@gmail.com
