During this unprecedented time in our history, the Osoyoos & District Arts Council (O.D.A.C.) Board of Directors extends their heartfelt best wishes to you, your families, friends and neighbours and to the community at large. We are impressed with the care and attention of our community as we note exemplary acts of kindness to everyone and in particular to those who need it most.
In keeping with the need to be attentive to ‘lowering the curve’ of the spread of COVID-19, The ART Gallery Osoyoos has temporarily closed its doors and delayed mounting their next show.
The Osoyoos Concert Series was able to present the final performance of the season with yet another successful show featuring the Company B Jazz Band.
The Board is grateful to The ART Gallery Osoyoos Committee and the Osoyoos Concert Series Committee and their audiences and volunteers for their dedication to these programs. A simple thank you to them cannot express enough our deep appreciation for all they do.
The O.D.A.C. Board, while curtailing face-to-face meetings, remains at work behind the scenes towards the plans for the remainder of this year and those in the works for 2020-21. We are on the precipice of exciting announcements.
The 2020-21 Osoyoos Concert Series performances are lined up and contract talk is underway. These are troubling times for performers and they are grateful for O.D.A.C.’s continued support and to be able to plan for their future. Acts and dates will be announced soon.
The ART Gallery Osoyoos has several upcoming shows waiting ‘in the wings!’ They will not disappoint! Check in with their Facebook Page to watch for announcements: the art gallery osoyoos
