Hello Photo Friends,

I was asked today what the upcoming themes would be for our space in City Hall where we have our Photography Gallery Shows. And since we have worked them out for the rest of 2013 - I figure I should share them with you all so you can be ready to submit your beautiful images on time.

As you know Sept was "Being Human". The Opening is this Thursday Night Sept 19th at 5pm. See info here for details: http://www.meetup.com/photo-22/events/140479332/

December Show Theme "Creative City" Opening Reception is Dec 6th to coincide with the City of Worcester's Festival of Lights. (don't know what the festival is like? check last years writeup http://www.worcestermass.org/calendar-of-events/festival-of-lights)

  • Submissions due Nov 1 by 11PM
  • Notification by Nov 6th
  • Framing Party will be around Nov 21st 5:30-7pm
  • Hanging Dec 2nd
  • Opening Dec 6th 5-8:30pm

March's Show Theme is  "Black and White" Opening Date of March 20th

  • Submissions Due Feb 24th by 11PM
  • Notification by March 1st
  • Framing Party will be around March 15th 5:30-7pm
  • Hanging March 17th
  • Opening March 20th

June's Show Theme is  "Abstractions" Opening Date of June 19th

  • Submissions Due May 23rd 11PM
  • Notification by May 28th
  • Framing Party will be around June 11th 5:30-7pm
  • Hanging June 16th
  • Opening June 19th 5-6:30

These are the proposed days and times- all subject to change based on space availability- but hopefully this will get your curiosity going and submissions in on time!

I am currently looking for volunteers to help me this process. This means one or all of these aspects; sorting submissions, working with jurors, taking down frames, helping at the framing parties, and also with hanging the shows. I could use help with PR as well. Can we form a team? Maybe a group of 3-4 folks?

Scott and I have been doing these shows for 3 years now and I am ready to retire after this round. I won't lie- its a lot of work, but the feedback is great and when an image sells- it's wonderful.

Also keep these things in mind-

  • This is a great space for you to share your work with the public.
  • You get to build your art career resume each time you show your work in this space.
  • We have sold work several times from this space.
  • This is a great learning experience.
  • The city loves WAP for doing this. Networking and connections are invaluable.

Email, call, or chat with me at Meetup- if you are interested in helping out on this adventure. If no one steps up, I'll inform the folks at city hall the space should go to someone else...and we'll be sad.

Cheers,

Donna
