After considerable reflection and committee discussion, I need to announce that the Gosport Arts Festival will not take place this year. This was not an easy decision and was met with varied responses.
Over the past 46 years, the Gosport Festival has transformed and grown in many ways but has always regarded its artists with the highest respect and consideration. Due to several factors, but mainly because of important obligations several committee members have this spring, we felt this was a good time to re-evaluate the event and potentially return with a bigger and better one. We feel this decision is the right one and will maintain the integrity and professionalism Gosport represents.
We understand this decision will be disappointing, not only to you but to all involved. We are truly sorry for this and hope the timing will allow you to find another spring event in which you can exhibit and sell your artwork. In the meantime, we will be considering ideas for the future.
Thank you for your commitment and support of the Gosport Arts Festival and Edmarc Hospice for Children. We will not forget the wonderful memories and the friendships we’ve made. As always, we wish you luck and success with all your endeavors.
