DO YOU WANT TO BE PART OF THE FRIENDS OF THE GALLERY 2012 EXHIBITION?
This is notice for all members of the Sunshine Coast Arts Council that the intake day for your Friends of the Gallery submission is Monday January 2, 2012, from 1pm to 4pm. The intention is that the single piece of work you bring to this show will have been 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 January 4th, 2012. The opening Reception is from 7-9 pm on Wednesday January 4, 2012. Bring a plate of savoury or sweet finger food to share, please. This is a community Gallery and we appreciate your help in making a contribution to the party table.
PLEASE NOTE - if you can't get to the Gallery on Monday January 4th 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 Monday or Tuesday 3 January 2012. Please email and let me know if you can come.
We'll also need help taking the show down on the afternoon of 30 January 2012, Time TBA.
I've included the form you need to fill out for your submission – it’s the second page of this message. Don't forget to print it out and bring it with you on Monday January 4, 2012, 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.
