After being denied the funding required to stay open for their fourth year, the A1C art gallery is shutting down shop in downtown St. John’s.
Mark Bennett, member of the board of directors for the non-profit, artist run organization, is saying very little other than they have no choice but to close the physical gallery.
“We’re not really sure what’s going to happen,” he says. “There are certain things we’re not suppose to talk about yet.”
But the A1C organization will be openly talking this Saturday at their Annual General Meeting. Open to the general public, Bennett invites anyone interested in becoming involved with the organization, as well as those who want to learn more about the future of the gallery, to attend.
As of now, the future of the A1C gallery is hazy. With no definite plans to reopen, Bennett says they are waiting for a majority vote from all members before any decisions can be made.
On Sunday, May 15, the A1C Gallery will be having a moving sale. For details check out their website or Facebook group.
