City Hall Gallery Framing Party- If your image got in you need to be there!

This meeting will be for the members who are participating in the upcoming show but also for the folks who had an image in the last show. Please come and pick up your prints!!

This is the official framing party for the Being Human Gallery show- so-- If your work was accepted into the show- Being Human- please have it matted to a 16x24 frame. Yes the frame size is 16x24. Please use white mats only. Bring your matted print to the the craft center and we will help you frame it. It would be great if you could also bring a flat head screw driver. We will have some to share... but if you have your own that is ideal.

You will need to check in with me when you arrive, we will need your name address and phone number as well is if your print if for sale and if it is how much.

This show will be up Sept, October and November. We are working on a reception for Sept 19th at 5pm. So mark your calenders for that!

Framing Party for the City Hall Gallery Show Being Human


Sept 11th, 2013 from 5:30-7:00  Please come anytime between 5:30 and 6:45- Worcester Center for the Crafts


If your image appears on the list below, you are in the show. Congratulations!


Next step...you need to make a print and have it matted to a 16x24 outside dimensions. Please use a white mat... read on for more details...


This meeting will be for the members who are participating in the upcoming show but also for the folks who had an image in the last show. Please come and pick up your prints!!

Come learn about framing the prints, and discuss the opening of the show. Participants; We will have your frame ready for you at this meeting. We will show you how to take your matted print and put it in the frame with the glass and how to seal it.


What you need to bring to the meeting: 
Please bring with you a Flat Head Screw Driver!! Everyone will need one to put the frames together. 
Your Print 
Your Mat - cut to fit your print. 
Your Print should be mounted to a back board and attached to your mat. 
Our frames are 16x24 in size. This means- All accepted photographs must be matted to a 16x24 outside dimensions - we will accept white mats only. 

We are responsible for labeling the artwork on display with artist name, title and price (if your image is being offered for sale). So you need to supply this information at the framing party. We will not be accepting images that are not matted. SO no flush mounted images.


VERY IMPORTANT: 
IF YOUR IMAGE IS SQUARE---- PLEASE Check with me on whether it should be vertical or horizontal.


We want everyone to sign the mats in the lower right corner of the mat's opening- if you do not know what this means -don't sign it- just bring it to the meeting and we will discuss where to sign the mat. 
You will need a back board to mount the print to and then place the mat over it. This back board should be the exact same size as the mat you had cut for your print. I recommend it be the same material as the mat. 
Simply tell whomever is cutting the mats that they need to fit into a 16x24 frame. 

Please let me know if you have any questions! 
Cheers, 
Donna

    So what happened to the pictures from the last exhibit? I never heard of a reception and was never contacted by anyone to pick up my picture. Any guidance, please?

      Donna: I moved out of state and had sent someone to pick up my photo tonight, but they got the dates mixed up. Is there anyway I can pick it up from you some other time? Please let me know, I'm so sorry!
