East Coast Regional Meeting has been cancelled
As waves of closures sweep the country and more talk is being heard about the importance of “flattening the curve” it seems as though the inevitable has reached our doorstep, and we must make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s East Coast Regional. In the meantime—“Isolation? You mean stay in my studio and paint? Well, OKAY! If that’s how it must be.
