COVID-19 update

Due to the health issues surrounding the COVID 19 virus, and in order to protect both our members and customers, the TRAG Gallery will be closed until further notice. Additionally, the April 13th public Guild meeting at the Pioneer Center will also be cancelled, and all other meetings until further notice. Please take care of yourselves and stay well. Let’s take this opportunity to delve into our passions and do what we love – create art and bring some much needed joy in a time we need it most.

Did you take the Oregon Arts & Artists COVID-19 impact survey?

COVID-19 Arts Organizations & Artists Impact Survey

We all know the power of arts and culture to bring us together and we know that we need the arts – and artists – now more than ever to weather this challenging time.It’s difficult to predict how colleagues and friends will be affected by the coronavirus, so we are joining together to get a snapshot of the impact of what arts organizations and all the different types of artists in Oregon are facing. This will help funders be responsive, and also help all of us make the case for support to leaders in government, business and philanthropy.

Thank you in advance for taking a minute and for sharing information to help build our case. We understand there are many surveys circulating right now.

If you haven’t yet, fill out this survey being used by a consortium of regional and state-wide funders; working in partnership including the Miller Foundation, Oregon Community Foundation, Tualatin Valley Creates and the Regional Arts & Culture Council. Survey closes 5 p.m., Sunday, March 22 (PDT).

Additionally, Congress is making big decisions NOW about federal aid funding for the country’s nonprofit arts sector – as much as $4 billion being requested! Please ensure Oregon’s arts community is a priority by filling out a national survey from Americans for the Arts. 

Please share widely among all of your contacts and networks!Follow this link to the AFTA survey: bit.ly/nationalCOVID-19survey

TRAG Gallery Closed

Updated  3/16 11:25 pm

I am glad to hear from so many of you with questions and  concerns. The choice that Trieste and I made for short hours for the gallery weighted heavily on us. We have NOW decided to keep the gallery closed. No one needs more potential close contacts at this time. Stay home, stay healthy and enjoy the time with your loved ones.  We will be closed at least though  April 1st.      

We will not have Art in/out on the March 28th / 29th as that would bring too many people together. If someone is in need of their art at the end of the month that certainly can be arranged. So sorry to cause more worry and concerns earlier.  

We care about all of you. It is important to us to be part of the solution.

TRAG Gallery Open / Singer Hill take out meals

This is the TRAG Gallery  3/16/2020 update due to Gov. Brown’s announcement of restaurants closing for take-out only in Oregon. Unfortunately, Singer Hill will be closed as of  Tuesday, March the 17th, 2020,  except for take outs. 

Fortunately, Singer Hill says that the TRAG gallery can stay open on a daily basis. After having discussed with Trieste Andrews the pros and cons…. We shall have “bankers hours” 9am -2pm.

We will have our TRAG sign set out with an open notice on it by the middle door that comes into the cafe. Singer Hill will be kind enough to advise customers who come in for take out orders that they are welcome to browse the gallery while waiting. 

We shall see how this goes and re-evaluate as the days go on. My hope would be that people will have cabin fever and need some place to wander safely for a bit. What better place to wander than our gallery. Art In/out will be the last weekend of March. Work your shifts. Bring in fun work for customers to see. Every sale is important. 

If you have questions or concerns or ideas please feel free to email or call.
