Hi Donna,

Just wondering if the framing party is on for this Saturday, 10-12 at the Worc. Library?

Any talk of an opening and date?

Thanks!
Judy

Hi All,
 
The Jury is in! We got all the selections from the call to life show sorted through and juried. It was again a very difficult process and we thank everyone for submitting images!
Thank you all!
If your image appears on the list below you need to make a print and have it matted to a 16x24 outside dimensions. Please use a white mat... read on:
FRAMING PARTY! There will be a meeting for the members who are participating in the upcoming show " Signs of Life " to frame their prints, get details, (learn about framing the prints,) and discuss the opening of the show. It is tentatively scheduled for August 4th from 10-12 at he Worcester Library. I still need to confirm this.
 
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. 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.
So, Bring your matted print. This means you need to have a mat cut! The frame size is 16x24 so the over all mat must fit into a 16x24 frame.
We suggest making your prints 11x14 or 9x12 so they can have a nice white boarder around the image. We will not be accepting images that are not matted. SO no flush mounted images.
 
VERY IMPORTANT:
IF YOUR IMAGE IS SQUARE---- PLEASE talk to me first before getting your mat made. I don’t know if it needs to be hoz or vertial yet!
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.
Simply tell whomever is cutting the mats that they need to fit into a 16x24 frame.
Please check in with me about the title of your print and the price you want to sell it for before you leave this meeting.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
I look forward to our next show...
Cheers,Donna

FYI:
The City of Worcester will celebrate the ‘60s in the coming year. Inspired by Marshall McLuhan’s “The Medium is the Message,” two public art exhibitions seek artists for two exhibitions:
Photographic images based on the theme Signs of Worcester County - showing off Worcester’s interesting signage, unique type styles or any ‘writing’ found around Worcester County… endangered species of signage, hand painted, the monumental, the pre-fab vinyl lettering, the plastic, the neon or bulbous or computer generated signage.
 
Worcester Windows is a community gallery program which uses storefronts throughout downtown Worcester as exhibit space to enhance the City’s downtown and to provide display opportunities for local emerging and established artists. Originally intended simply as a means to provide exhibit opportunities, Worcester Windows has grown dramatically, successfully raising the awareness of Worcester as a Creative City by not only bringing artwork to the public and showcasing local talent, but in also establishing itself as a true community gallery through which many of the exhibiting artists have sold works.
 
Worcester Windows is sponsored in part by the Worcester Cultural Coalition, the City of Worcester, the Greater WorcesterCommunity Foundation and Worcester State University Gallery. www.WorcesterMass.org/Windows
