President's Message

March-April 2020

Members of the Smith Mountain Arts Council (SMAC) Board have had a few challenges of late fulfilling our mission of “bringing the arts to the Smith Mountain Lake Community!”  Well we are living in strange times! 

In light of the ever-heightening concerns with the COVID-19 outbreak, we have more UN-events than events.  We are so sorry to have had to cancel the Nashville Songwriter’s coffeehouse, The SW Virginia Songwriter’s Coffeehouse, the John Faber Memorial Photography Show (April 24-26), and the Panini Brothers Coffeehouse (May 8-9).   Our SMAC treasurer will be refunding the tickets sold to any of these events within the next few weeks. We hope to reschedule events, but no dates have been announced yet. 

Nobody knows what will happen next but in this time of uncertainty, we hope that you are doing some things to keep you and your families safe and self-entertained.  Below are some ideas!

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently. Avoid touching your face.
  • Practice social distance by extended non-touch greetings from 6 feet or more away
  • Remain at home if you are showing signs of illness.
  • Apply the healing power of the arts by considering creative outlets such as journaling, painting, sketching, coloring, moving to music or photography.
