2011 Friends of the Gallery Exhibition
5 January 2011 – 30 January 2011
This is a reminder for all members of the Sunshine Coast Arts Council that the intake day for your Friends of the Gallery submission is Monday January 3, 2011, from 1pm to 4pm. The intention is that the single piece of work you bring to this show will be made in the past year, and will not have been submitted to the FOG before.
The FOG Exhibition will be hung on Monday and Tuesday, to be ready for the opening at 11am on Wednesday morning. The opening Reception is from 7-9 pm, on Wednesday January 5, 2011. Bring some savoury or sweet finger food to share, please. This is a community Gallery, and we appreciate your help in keeping our costs down by making a contribution to the party table.
PLEASE NOTE - if you can't get to the Gallery on Monday January 3rd to submit your work because of weather, illness or caring for someone ill, you must telephone on Monday to reserve a place on the wall, or on a plinth for your work. If we don't know you're bringing something in we won't be able to keep a place for your piece to be installed. We won't be able to make exceptions.
We would appreciate it if you didn't take unfair advantage of this offer. Only telephone to reserve a place if you are unable to come to the Gallery because you are ill or caring for someone ill, or the weather is completely dreadful.
It will be all right to send your piece with a friend who is bringing work to the Gallery on the Monday intake day.
In addition, if you are experienced in hanging exhibitions or want to learn how to, or are handy with a hammer, a measuring tape and a level please volunteer to help hang the show on Tuesday 4 January 2011. Please email Frances and let her know if you can come.
We'll also need help taking the show down on the afternoon of 31 January 2011, Time TBA.
I've attached the form you need to fill out for your submission. Don't forget to print it out and bring it with you on Monday January 3, 2011, between 1pm and 4pm. The Gallery will be open, I'll be here with a helper or two. We'll look forward to seeing all of you in the new year.
