"We won't ever fold. I mean the organization is going to be intact forever -- I mean I hope," said Pres. Robin Walker to the Seguin Daily News.
The eviction notice we've been waiting for (and hoping would never come) has arrived, and we must be out of our Gallery at 109 N. River St. on July 1, 2013. Gillian Siemens, Gallery Manager Debbie Zengerle, and other committee members have worked extremely hard for months to find another property, preferably downtown, that we can move to. They have visited every vacant building downtown, followed up on tips about good deals all over, and talked to everybody they could think of. We only paid a token rent plus utilities and our own expenses at the River Street location, paying market rates looks impossible at this moment. Please let the committee know if you inherit an empty building or have any ideas they haven't already tried.
The Gallery will be open and the high school show on display during regular Gallery hours through June 28 as promised, and we'll have a huge party after our June 8 meeting to open the Moving Sale. Please tell your friends!
If you have art in the Gallery or Gift Shop, please consider an acceptable sale price and let Debbie Zengerle or a docent know. You can begin picking up unsold art on Wednesday, June 25. If you can help with the June 8 party in any way (music, food, manpower, ideas), please contact Alicia Helton. Watch for ads in the papers and be ready to leap into action between June 8 and June 30. We'll need lots of help.
