Quick update

Greetings! We just wanted to share that today’s ReZume Arts segment featuring Kelly Schultz and Shannon Lucas-Westrum faced a double technological glitch. It appears that Zoom is facing problems with both the livestream function and recording function today, much to our disappointment. With that said, not only were we unable to share this conversation live. We are also unable to share the recording of it. We hope to gather these two artists again to make up for today’s technological disappointment. Stay tuned!

ReZume Arts with Kelly Freichels Schultz and Shannon Lucas-Westrum

Dear ReZume Arts Fans!

We had a great FaceBook LIVE conversation planned for you today with two area fiber artists, but tech was definitely not on our side. Rest assured, the ReZume conversation is going on as planned, and it will be recorded; soon we will be sure to share the taped conversation far and wide, on our Region 2 Arts Council FB business page, on our staff regiontwoarts friends page, and on our Region 2 Arts Council YouTube channel.

Have a wonderful, safe holiday!

Region 2 Arts Council Staff will not be available on Thanksgiving and the Friday after. We will respond to any emails or voicemail messages when we return on Monday.

R2AC Staff Working from Home

With COVID cases on the rise, the Region 2 Arts Council Board of Directors has supported our decision to close our office to the public through January 1, 2021. While it has been a joy being open again, we have decided for this moment in the pandemic, we can be just as effective working from home.

Please note that Watermark Art Center is open and carefully following safety protocols (masks, sanitizing, social distancing). There are some exciting current and upcoming exhibits that we highly recommend!

If you call our office, please leave a message and we will get back to you.  For faster turn around time and support, consider emailing us at staff@r2arts.org.
