Dearest Family Mace and Friends,

I hope that this message finds everyone healthy and safe! It has been one heck of a year so far. I am writing to tell you that we will not be hosting our annual Shindig at Toklat this year. Although I am very sad, we must continue to stay away from each other to keep everyone safe.

If you are up for it, please respond and let me know how each of you and yours is faring. Our friend Eddie Running Wolf was one of the early people in Colorado to contract COVID-19. His experience was harrowing and his recovery long. I am glad he let his community know what he was experiencing, and I hope each of you will keep us up to date too. We love you all so much.

Before all of the stress of the year began, ACES announced an incredible plan to renovate the Catto Center at Toklat! The plan is ambitious and exciting. There is great community and financial support behind it, and although the current situation has complicated the forward momentum, I believe that plan is still in place and I look forward to sending another email soon with updates about it.

It is also the end of an era for Toklat Gallery. Lynne Mace is retiring and will close the gallery in Basalt on June 30th. I am wishing Lynne the very best and hope that the transition is smooth!

I am sending you all the biggest virtual hug ever. Stay safe until we can do it in person.

Love,
Alana
