WILLIAMSBURG-After more than a year of being closed as a result of the covid-19 pandemic, the Williamsburg Contemporary Art Center (WCAC) will reopen to the public on Wednesday, July 14.

Among the shows and exhibits scheduled at WCAC when it reopens are the Annual Members’ Show, which will run July 14-August 28;  a Textile Extravaganza Show, August 30-September 18;  a Fall Members Co-Op Show, September 20-October 30; and WCAC’s annual Small Works and Holiday Show, which is scheduled for November 1-December 18.

In addition, WCAC will also hold classes at the Art Ed Center beginning this month while continuing its popular Zoom classes. Plans are in the works to host larger workshops in the Main Gallery, while WCAC is also working on a hybrid technique that will blend on-site and virtual programs.

WCAC (aka the Blue Building) is located at 110 Westover Avenue. WCAC’s new hours will be Wednesday through Saturday, 11am to 3pm. For more information, visit

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
