Time to plan your submissions for the Fall Members Show

Once again this year's Fall Members' Show will be displayed at the Artist's Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place and will be on display the first two weekends in October -- Oct. 5-7 and Oct. 12-14. Each member can submit two works for a fee of $5 for each entry. And if you haven’t paid your dues yet, now is the time to do so. The artist's reception is planned for the second Saturday, Oct. 13, from 2-5. A judge will award ribbons in each media sometime before the second weekend and, for the first time, the public will also be asked to vote for "The People's Choice Award". All the ribbon winners will be recognized during the reception on Oct. 13.  The drop off of entries will be at the gallery on Thursday, Oct. 4, 3-7 pm. And the pick-up will be Sunday Oct 14 at 6-7pm or Monday, Oct. 15 3-5 pm. And as we did last year, the members will be asked to help cover the gallery and greet the public for 4-hour shifts both weekends. The more the merrier!  And just so you know, the first Sunday of the exhibit (Oct. 7) will coincide with a 4:15 Patriots football game against the Denver Broncos. But no Patriot games are scheduled for Gillette Stadium the second weekend.  As usual, the forms are included with this newsletter and will also be available at the September 12 meeting. Feel free to e-mail Frank Quinn with any questions at fxquinn@yahoo.com.
