|Richard Kattman, Liftoff!|
We were pleased by the positive comments we received about Industrial Strength (our summer show, juried by Howard Yezerski), both in Artscope magazine and from our many visitors. This reinforced our opinion that this show was perhaps our best group effort yet. We enjoyed conversations with people of all ages, especially the comments and questions of the students and summer campers who stopped by. We even had the occasional canine visitor!
We've made good use of the more relaxed summer atmosphere, as well, by working on some longer term projects. We've got a new logo, designed by Lisa Thompson, and are putting it to use on all our publicity materials, including new signage which will be unveiled when we re-open in September. We've streamlined our data entry and bookeeping, two un-sexy but essential components of running a gallery. Our two fantastic interns. Anne and Emma, researched and designed a brochure that informs our visitors of all the great choices for dining around the gallery, and provides a map and list of other things to do in the area. (Make sure you pick one up next time you stop in.) We even found the time to freshen up the space with a coat of paint!
Our major 'top secret’ project for the summer has been to plan our offerings for the fall, winter and spring of 2011-2012. We’ll be unveiling the fall/winter lineup when we reopen September 9th.
