RMWT Beyond the Bark, December 2nd to 12th
The RMWT December show is fast approaching. Once again it will be called Beyond the Bark. Pieces for the show may be brought to the November RMWT meeting or dropped off at one of two places by November 28. Bring up to three pieces of your work to either Doug Schneiter at the Woodcraft store or to Lloyd Jenkins's house, 1166 Cobblestone Ct. in Fort Collins. Please call first, 226-1166 or 231-0210.
Community Creative Center Form (click on this for a printable pdf file). Must be filled out for each piece exhibited.
Pieces must be delivered by November 28. The show will run from December 2nd to 5th and from the 9th to the 12th. The First Friday Art Walk and our reception will take place on December 4, the day following the RMWT Christmas party.
The group exhibit will be at the Community Creative Center, the Carnegie building at 200 Mathews Street, around the corner from the library, in Fort Collins. The show will not be juried, so everyone will have equal opportunity to enter and exhibit, and we hope that all members will display at least one piece.
There will be an area for pens and other small items. These dates include the First Friday Art Walk, December 4th, which always brings a large audience to an exhibit. The gallery will be open Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 6 PM each of these two weeks, with the Art Walk reception from 6 PM until 9 PM on that First Friday. Members may exhibit up to three pieces of their best work.
You are welcome to bring your pieces for the exhibit (if you have them ready) to the November meeting on Nov. 5th. That way you won't have to deliver them somewhere else later on. Please bring each piece in a box which is clearly labeled with your name. Include a 3 x 5 card or a note with the kind of wood, title of the piece, if any, and the selling price, if it is for sale. No commission will be taken on the sale.
We hope every member will have at least one piece and up to three in the show.
For more information contact Ray Cole at (970) 481-3084 or email@example.com.
New Woodbank Guidelines now available. Must be read prior to use of the woodbank.
