Due to public health concerns surrounding COVID-19, 3S Artspace is temporarily closed to the public. Current CDC guidelines (issued on March 15) recommend an eight week closure. We are following these guidelines every day and will reopen when it is safe to do so.

We miss you all and can't wait to see you again. Please take care.

Dear Friends,

After careful consideration, and out of concern for public health, 3S Artspace has made the difficult decision to temporarily close for public events and Gallery visitation through March 31, 2020.

Future events will be subject to continuous review as information related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), artist availability, and public confidence changes every day. As always, we will stay in touch via social media, weekly e-newsletters, and updates on our website.

If you have already purchased tickets to a cancelled event in this timeframe, we will reach out to you directly. Ticket buyers will be offered the choice of a refund, a credit transfer to an upcoming event, or the opportunity to donate the value of your ticket to our non-profit during this difficult time.

For events that are postponed, we will transfer your tickets to the new event date and will be in touch with you directly.

We thank you for your consideration and your patience. Please note that refunds can take up to 30 days.

Affected events include:

  • Kat Wright, March 13 (Postponed. New date TBA.)
  • Rollercoaster, March 14 (Cancelled)
  • Mason Jennings, March 14 (Cancelled)
  • Stardog Saviours Perform Mother Love Bone, March 19 (Postponed. New date TBA.)
  • Dorks in Dungeons, March 20 (Cancelled)
  • Project Upcycle, March 26-28 (Postponed. New dates: November 5-7, 2020)

3S Artspace is guided by a vision and commitment to creating a space for the intersection of art and contemporary issues- a space where we can inspire each other to stay curious, foster empathy, and fuel creativity.

We have truly appreciated your support over the past five years (we opened five years ago this month!). Again, thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we make our way through this unique time.

We simply cannot wait to be back together.

- Beth Falconer, Executive Director

P.S. We have loads of future events still on sale, so stay with us! Thank you for your continued support.
