I'm happy to report that our application for the Hutchinson Center for the Arts 2019 exhibit has been accepted! Below are some details on the space and event:
Exhibition Dates: July 15 - August 23, 2019
It is a large venue with 7 or 8 moveable 8 foot walls.
Things can be displayed on both sides of walls and the space can be configured to best suit the exhibit.
Approx 130 - 150 linear feet of wall space plus pedestals for 3d work.
Work does not need to be for sale.
If artist elects to have it for sale, it is a 70 (artist) / 30 (center) split.
They will help with some of the food for the reception and wine is allowed (date TBD)
"The space is essentially a fish bowl - lots of windows and a big glass garage door. I strongly encourage some members come for a site visit to get a sense of the possibilities. One reason I selected your group was the hopes you would work with our large windows in some capacity."
We do not have a contract yet but I believe that Maria has confirmed that we will be participating in this show.
September challenge (on the 12th) is a mosaic with a cultural theme. Any culture and any size is okay. Meeting is at Lisa Ferguson’s home. Also bring your ideas for an idea exchange (resources for glass, glue, etc. or techniques that you have found successful).
November planning meeting is at Shelley Beaumont’s home. Come with great ideas for next year’s challenges or maybe a field trip idea.
Monet Challenge- Materials were passed out to members that have signed up for this challenge. I believe we are looking to have the individual squares completed by the November meeting. I hope we can put it together on the 14th at our planning meeting. We would like to hang the piece at the Hopkins show in March.
A big thank you to Shelley for all the work that she has done on this group project. We so appreciate your time.
December 12th is the Mosaic group’s pot luck and tesserae exchange at my home.
