They will install at TCC on 8/11, most likely in the evening. If you’d like to help, email Brett at western26 at msn.com

Plano Art Centre
Charlotte mentioned that she’d spoken to someone at the Plano Art Centre and they wanted us to exhibit and Deanna had, too. Deanna sent in a proposal for the group requesting the April 9 – May 8, 2010 slot in their large gallery.

They provide postcards up to a certain quantity and we can pay for extras if we want.

They also provide food and beverage for the reception.

They take a 25% commission on sales.

They hang the show but we can have it curated or juried if we want.

They say there’s no fee for using the space, but they do have a hanging and lighting fee and they say it usually stays below $300.

Following prospectus
There was discussion about confusion over some of the guidelines for exhibitions. Please read and follow the prospectus that is provided.

Global Swarming
Remember that August 1 is the deadline to send your jpgs to Janet. The prospectus is available on the files section of the Google group site.

Janet is trying to set up something that would be at the MAC during the exhibition.
