Hello 2021! What’s this? You have a socially-distanced, outdoor event taking place for me this year? I accept! I have been informed that the Dallas Arboretum is going forward with Artscape at the Arboretum this year. They have assured artists that they have had success with distancing and spacing during a few 2020 events and are following all health protocols.
For those who have never been, the Dallas Arboretum is a HUGE outdoor garden. Plenty of well-circulated, outdoor areas to be in. Personally at my booth, I will be offering hand sanitizer, wearing a mask, and frequently wiping down my wares with disinfecting wipes. Artscape takes place in late April of this year, so I expect many more of us will be vaccinated as well.
This is a new year, and while my online shop has been open, I look forward to being able to physically sell my wares. Touch and feel and interaction is so important, and as long as we can do it safely during the pandemic, I feel comfortable attending and vending at this event. I will update with any changes, but in the meanwhile, I look forward to seeing you at the Dallas Arboretum in April!
