NOVEMBER AGM

We know our AGM is not until November, but we are puting the word out now, in preparation.
Three of our long standing committee members feel it is time to pass their roles onto someone else.
Firstly Joanne Hughes currently holds 3 positions; she is our Vice President, Publicity Officer and she also does the Gallery's Roster. After being on the committee for 10 years Joanne will be standing down from ALL of these positions.

Ellen Styen, our Treasurer and Thelma Kirkwood our Progrsm Coordinator will also be standing down in November.
If you, or someone you know, would be interested in ANY of these positions then PLEASE leave a message here, or at the Gallery.
If you would like more information about these positions, then again, leave a message here.
Thank You

Hanging wire and D-rings

The gallery was busy on Monday setting up the next exhibitions. Even with 6 people on board it can still take sometime to do. The team like to make sure your art work is hung safely on the gallery hanging hooks, this process takes longer when they have to replace 'D' rings and/or incorrectly tied wire. You spend a lot of time creating your art and having it framed, even seeking a professional framer, so please take the same care and time when you attach 'D' rings and wire.
Below are some examples of acceptable D-rings, attaching wire so it is secure, and where to place the D-ring on the frame.
