ANNUAL MEMBERS' EXHIBIT 2021

EVENT DETAILS

WHAT

This exhibit is limited to members of the Plano Art Association. It is an opportunity to showcase members’ artwork in the Gallery @ Courtyard Theatre. Unfortunately, due to the COVID pandemic, the Gallery @ Courtyard Theatre is open for very limited time to admit a lower number of people to allow for social distancing. We will also be unable to host a reception this year. To remedy the low attendance numbers expected, the PAA and Gallery @ Courtyard Theatre plan to film a virtual tour of the exhibit with posting on the PAA website, Facebook Page, Members Only Facebook Page, Instagram site, and other sites to be determined.
