Dear Friends of Southern Arts Society,

We recognize the ongoing concern about coronavirus (COVID-19) and care deeply about the well-being of our visitors, artists, and volunteers. We are actively monitoring the situation, as well as abiding by the recommendations of local, State and Federal authorities.

Beginning today and continuing through Saturday, March 31, we have decided to postpone our programs and group meetings.
Those include:

  • Knit and Crochet on March 18 and
  • Colored Pencil Club on March 26.
We will make decisions on April activities by the end of March.We do want our space to remain a peaceful respite during this time. To that end, our Galleries, Gift Shop and studio space will remain open and continue welcoming guests as usual.

The following are additional precautionary steps we’re taking for your safety:

  • Our spaces are being cleaned more frequently—particularly high-touch areas, such as entryways, doorknobs, class tables, and handrails.
  • Bottles of hand sanitizer and wipes have been placed at the entrance for public use.
  • Visitors, artists, and volunteers with a cough, cold, or fever are being told to stay home and avoid close contact with others.
Please stay connected to us on our website and Facebook for the latest updates.
How can you help?Whether you’re an artist, member, volunteer, or just a first-time visitor, we ask that you take all of the basic precautions recommended by the CDC.

These include:

  • Clean your hands often.
  • Wash with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • Use hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands, particularly your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you cough or sneeze, use a shirt sleeve or tissue, not your hands. Then, wash your hands again.
  • Greet others without handshakes or hugs. Opt for waves or an elbow bump.
  • Keep your work area well sanitized.
If you aren’t feeling well and are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, please postpone your visit to SASi.We at SASi thank you for your support, for your interest, and for your attention to the ongoing concerns. We will do everything we can to continue making SASi a safe space for you to enjoy. If you have any specific questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call us at 704-739-5585.
