A Message About Convergence Amid The Covid-19 Pandemic
July 24, 2020 through July 30, 2020
The HGA Board has determined the safest course of action is to postpone the Convergence conference we had planned for July 2020 until July 15-21, 2022. It is HGA's intent to offer the same program in 2022 as we had scheduled for 2020. This includes sessions, tours, special events and more. We will also have twice as many exhibits. Artists who were juried into the 2020 exhibits will be invited to show their work alongside the 2022 exhibiting artists. We hope you will make plans to join HGA for Convergence in 2022.
