Dear Artist Members, Friends of MCAC, and Volunteers,
On Thursday, 26 March our country will enter Coronavirus Alert Level 4. As you will be aware, all of us are being instructed to stay at home, except for travel to essential services. All other businesses will close.
This means, of course, that all our activities at Te Huanui will cease, including the collection of purchased works and exhibitions for at least the coming four weeks, and possibly longer.
Other MCAC events and programmes will be affected by the government’s preventive actions, but we are working on some creative ways to continue bringing quality artworks to the public.
We greatly appreciate the participation of our community supporters, artists, Friends of MCAC, and volunteers in the life and work of our gallery. When we have re-scheduled our 2020 exhibitions, you will be able to see the new schedule here, on our Te Huanui Facebook page, and in local newspapers.
Philip Baldwin, Chairperson
Te Huanui is located at 17 South Terrace, right on the main street of Darfield and open 10am–4pm, Tuesday–Sunday.
Artist enquiries are always welcome.
