Melbourne Arts Trail – Weekend 16th/17th September– Assistance Required.

This will be held at the same venue as last year. 

This is a very prestigious event and gives us our chance to promote the club and show off our work, to improve local awareness and to help gain new members.

Gaining new members is really important for the club as it keeps the club vibrant, plus if we have more members we are more secure financially.  As it is an all weekend event we really need some more help from the membership.  To make sure this runs smoothly we need club members to volunteer their time (1 – 2 hours) to assist with this exhibition.

We are looking for the following:-

  1. To help set the stand on Friday evening the prints need to be put into frames and hanging, plus putting up the gazebo.
  2. To man the stand on Saturday.
  3. To man the stand on Sunday.
  4. Then dismantle the stand after 17:00hrs on Sunday and return boards etc. to Thomas Cook hall.

We also need you to submit your images to display.

We are arranging a collection of your prints at Harpers on Thursday 14th   September at 21:00hrs.  If you cannot make it to Harper’s you can please let me know by email, we will try and collect them from you. Please contact me at the following e-mail address (j.zahorodnyj@sky.com or Paul (paulatockbrook@gmail.com) with your offers of help so that I can plan the weekend.

Tombola

We will be running the Tombola again, as this raised £200.00 last year, which was a big boost to funds. So please can you donate any suitable items.

Prints for Melbourne Carnival – Saturday 8th July

We are coming up to the First exhibition of the year – The Melbourne Carnival on Saturday 8th July

A big thanks to everyone who has already volunteered to help during the day on Saturday. If anyone else can spend a couple of hours manning the exhibition during the afternoon, it would be greatly appreciated.

What we do need though is more prints to exhibit. You can bring them along to the Thomas Cook hall this Thursday evening, or to Harpurs after 21:00hrs, or even in the morning of the exhibition as we are setting up. It would help if you could email me before Thursday night, if you are intending to bring the prints on Saturday

Regards
