2019 Spring Show at A Place for the Arts

Today I went to my first meeting with the A Place for the Arts Group who exhibit their work at 23 Bridge Street West, in Bancroft, Ontario.

It is also the first time I will see how my paintings were hung in the Gallery they are located.

Since I wasn't able to be there to hang my exhibit I had set them out in a horizontal format at home, not realizing that my space was vertical.

Jane did an excellent job of hanging the paintings in the space that I had available.

The meeting was quite interesting in that they are also a not-for-profit and a co-operative gallery, very much like the Kawartha Artists' Gallery and Studio.

They are a smaller group having around 40 members and each member is required to sit one day per month whether or not they display any artwork.

The Gallery is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Wednesday through to Sunday and closed on Monday and Tuesday.

My first shift will be next month and I will have another member there with me at the beginning of my shift to show me the ropes. 

I think I am going to enjoy being a member of this art group.
