Cherryhill Grand Opening
Update January 22, 2022

Hello Everyone,

Due to government Covid 19 restrictions the Official Launch of the Cherryhill project has been pushed back until February  5th.

We will be installing the art as scheduled on Thursday, January 27th between 3:00pm and 6:00pm.  Please bring your art to Cherryhill mall during that time, but remember that the mall closes right at 6:00 pm. The display cases are installed and we have volunteers in place to make this installation a success.

If you enter the mall on the Oxford Street side next to Shoppers Drug Mart, jog right into the hallway leading to the Passport Office.

If you are unable to deliver your art during the above times please contact the Cherryhill team to make other arrangements at cherryhill@londoncommunityartists.ca

Thank you Everyone,

The Cherryhill Project Team.

 

 

Cherryhill Grand Opening

January 2, 2022

Dear LCA members,

Happy New Year!! We hope that you have all enjoyed your holiday season and are looking forward to 2022

We are excited to be moving forward with the Cherryhill Project and we are excited to be able to give all our members an opportunity to participate in the grand opening of this project. The grand opening celebration is currently scheduled for January 29th.

If you haven’t already filled out and submitted the form for your artwork to be included in the grand opening of the project please see the CherryHill update in the Members Only section of our website dated December 22, 2021. The grand opening artwork will be displayed for three weeks and there will be no charge for this initial period. Delivery dates and times will be decided on shortly and we will send out a short email with the details.

Each member will be allowed to display one piece of art measuring no larger than 15” x 15”. These measurements are the maximum allowed due to the space available. For example 14” x 10” is allowed, 15” X 15” is allowed, 10” X 16” is NOT allowed. This size restriction is only for this grand opening period. All artwork MUST be wired and ready to hang. No artwork in crystal clear bags will be accepted.
Please complete your submission form by January 19th, 2022 at 4:00pm. No late submissions will be accepted.

To gear up for the regular rotation of the Cherryhill Project, please review the attached schedule and make note of the 5 week period you are to display your work. If the scheduled time does not work for you, please let us know as soon as possible. The Cherryhill Team will work to fill that spot and reschedule you at an alternate time.

As a reminder, during the regular schedule, each member will have a 42” X 42” area to display as many pieces of their art that will fit within that space. The cost to participate is $20.00 for the 5 week period and each member will have approximately 2, 5 week periods per year. The $20.00 fee will be due one week prior to the start of your display period. Payment can be made by e-transfer to treasurer@londoncommunityartists.ca . For alternate payment arrangements please contact Joan Hall via the website. We have attached the previous letter detailing the program from March 2021 for you to review. Change over of the artwork at the end and the beginning of each 5 week period will be scheduled with the artists.

We will follow all health recommendations due to Covid and will keep you informed as information becomes available. We are optimistic that there will be no further delays with this project.

Thank you all for your patience and continued enthusiasm. We look forward to seeing your beautiful work.

The Cherryhill Mall Committee
