COVID-Related Event Information
The Bryn Du Art Show will abide by all local, state and national guidelines regarding the holding of events in the time of the coronavirus pandemic. We recognize that there is no way to anticipate whether or not the 17th Annual Bryn Du Art Show will be able to be held in a traditional format, although that is what we are currently planning for. If deemed necessary by the staff and Board of Directors, Bryn Du reserves the right to make the show entirely virtual or hybrid. A virtual art show will be held online using images, videos and interviews. A hybrid art show will physically display artworks but will be limited in number of individuals allowed to enter the show at a time and may reduce the number of art show related events held in-person. Regardless of the type of show that is held, all artists submitting work to be considered for the show will agree to the decisions made and adjust accordingly.
By choosing to submit art to the show for consideration you are acknowledging and agreeing to the above guidelines.
