Metchosin Art Gallery deadline extended

The Metchosin Arts and Cultural Centre Association is still seeking proposals for future use of the Metchosin Art Gallery

The Metchosin Arts and Cultural Centre Association is still seeking proposals for future use of the Metchosin Art Gallery. The five board members extended the deadline for proposals to Jan. 15. The members have yet to receive a proposal, but individually they have heard inquires, said Gaert Linnaea, MACCA president.

MACCA ran the gallery until it closed Dec. 1 and is actively seeking a new direction for the gallery. They hope to find another group to operate the community art gallery.

“We will need a solid business plan to organize this,” Linnaea said. “We are looking for proposals that are a viable business as long as it’s not at the cost of the tax payer.”

MACCA hosted a meeting with artists, members of the association and the public to discuss potential options in October. More than 40 people attended and discussed the options of using the space add an artist co-operative and the possibility of fundraising to keep the gallery open.

MACCA is asking for interested parties to submit proposals for future use of the gallery site to Linnaea at linnaea1@telus.net or call 250-381-5752.
