Dear Art Makers,
I sincerely hope you are all doing well! I have heard from a few of you inquiring about the status of AMD this year. It’s taken a little while to get a definitive answer from the University regarding the use of the venue in 2021, but it has now been settled. All indoor events on campus had been canceled in the spring and even though mandates have now been lifted, nothing more will be planned for the summer.
I’ve contacted the instructors that were slated to teach this summer and most of them have marked their calendars for 2022. Our in-person retreat will be held July 15 – 17, 2022, so mark your calendars! We will begin gathering workshop information and updating our website in the coming months. My goal is to open registration in the fall. Unfortunately, we will not be hosting virtual workshops this year.
It feels like it has been forever since we last gathered, and I for one, miss this event and all of you terribly! Quite a number of you had instructed me to apply your 2020 registration payments to 2021. If you have done that and do not want me to further transfer your registration to 2022, please let me know. I am happy to refund your money……or secure your spot for 2022!
I’m excited to train my sights on AMD 2022, knowing that this pandemic will be in our rear-view mirror and we can get on with bigger and better things….together!
