"Opening of the Member Print Exhibit at the Gallery at Grosvenor Park- Off Site- 7 Loring Hill Ave-Salem,MA "
by Marilyn & Rick Cloran Coordinators
Sunday, March 4, 3 PM - 5 PM
Our 2018 yearly member exhibit at the Gallery at Grosvenor Park in Vinnin Square on the Swampscott/Salem line will be held from March 2 until April 5. The address of the gallery is 7 Loring Hills Ave., Salem.
The exhibit will be hung on March 2 and the opening will be held on Sunday, March 4, from 3:00 to 5:00 P.M. It is a very nice event with the gallery providing refreshments of wine, coffee, cheese, crackers, hot hors dâ€™oeuvres and dessert. The show will end on April 5. The prints will be returned to you on Monday, April 9. Another option is to bring your prints directly to Grosvenor on Friday, March 2, between 9:00 and 9:30 A.M. If you do this you must pick them up there on Thursday, April 5 at 4:00 P.M. when we are taking them down. If you plan on doing this, please let me know ahead of time
Prints will be collected on Monday, February 26, at the club. Framed prints are required, ready to hang with a wire across the back - no saw tooth hangers can be used. One or two prints may be entered with a maximum size of 18 x 24. Titles and prices should be emailed to me ahead of time. If you wish to have your prints pictured on the postcard invitation or the poster for the gallery, you must e-mail me a jpeg by January 15. We hope to hang 50 prints.
This is a great opportunity to show your work and share it with your friends and the community. You never know when someone will see it and wish to purchase it. No commission is taken but we hope that you will consider making a donation to the building fund if you make a sale.
Framed prints must be packed securely so they will not be damaged in transport. A case with padding or large heavy cardboard box is best. Please do not use pieces of bubble wrap taped together. Remember we must repack them for transport back so make it simple for us. Packages should be marked with your name on the outside. Also keep in mind that the gallery is in the business wing of a nursing facility where the patients constantly walk by on their way to physical therapy. Make sure your photograph is appropriate for that environment.
