Newsletter December 2018
Another year. Turning 40 last year was we believe a great achievement and our thanks go to all the people who have contributed over the years and especially to the new entrants that graced our latest exhibition.
The October Exhibition was a success. The quality and range of exhibits was remarkable and compliments flowed from our visitors so congratulations to all who entered. Attendance by the public remained buoyant with nearly 90 people a day but slightly down on last year. Either our visitors have run out of wall space or there has been an element of ‘belt tightening’ creeping in which other exhibitions have also noticed. Perhaps when the furore over the EU has settled we can get on and get back to a brighter market.
Your participation was complemented by the sale of exhibits and artists cards. There were 36 exhibits sold which was over 10% of the work on show, representing 30% of the exhibitors. A great result considering there was £38,000 of exhibits on display. The card sales were down this year. Of the 600 plus cards displayed, 300 were sold, a good level of return. Once again we had invited two schools to submit their students work and we were delighted with the result. The three winners walked away with cash prizes.
We decided the try another experiment with the hanging. Probably most of the exhibitors were unaware that with the help of Andrea, our latest recruit to the team and her computer software, we were able to layout the location of all the entries in advance, thereby making the hanging process simpler and we believe better. The new labelling process also simplified the take down and hand back at the end of the exhibition, something we all appreciated. We will be using both again next year
