To all members:
A very dedicated group of members are putting together our Indiana Landmarks Exhibit and Show for this year: "Windows, Gates, and Doors - Portals of Historic Indy". Last year, we put on a pretty spectacular show at the Landmark, and this year will prove to no different...just better! I considered it more as a very, very, special EVENT, and I refuse to limit it to just an art or photo exhibit. For those who went, it was an evening of entertainment...in an absolutely beautifully restored and historical building that Indiana, Indianapolis, the Old Northside, all of us are proud to have...very close by...the Indiana Landmarks (at 12th & Central)!
Our photographers and their photos of the Old Northside were the highlight...the main focus for the evening. But, we also had a dynamic display of hors d'oeuvres and a sensational duet of jazz singers. Many people came, took in the photo exhibit, got themselves a small plate of appetizers, sat at the cocktail tables, and stayed to enjoy the delightful music. As far as I know, the same group will be returning. I do have another group as a back up if we run into problems...but I think our duet will be it this year, as we so enjoyed them last year.
If you have not been to the Indiana Landmarks or do not know the history behind this architectural wonder...you need to get yourself there so you, too, can appreciate this fantastic structure and all it has to offer. It is a great work of art in itself. A feat of achievement and beauty to be sure! I worked very hard to get us space in their Gallery last year...and I'm very proud to say we've been allowed to make a return visit again this year. And, hopefully every November going forward.
We are restricting the number of photographers displaying on the walls to 17. However, those 17 and other photographers in our membership can exhibit other places throughout the Gallery, i.e. various tables, room dividers, etc. We'll be dicussing these options at our next meeting on July 23.
This Sunday, July 23, is the cutoff date for the 17 wall exhibitors. If you want to have your photos exhibited on the walls...you need to RSVP now! There will be a waiting list. So, if you are #18 or # 19...don't fret!
All announcements re this exhibit will be posted on the November 2 calendar entry... So, look there for the latest in news... The planning team will be meeting on the 23 and I'm positive we'll have a lot to post after that...
