Some final thoughts on the recently concluded 198th Autumn Exhibition so, over to our very own Shannon Morgan .....
With the Treasurer balancing our account , and the cheques dropping through your letter boxes as we speak (or type), the 198th Exhibition is quickly drawing to its official close. But before we consign it to memory, I would like to give a quick wrap up.
First I would like to thank all of the hard working Stewards, the talented demonstrators and the artists who attended and gave their support for helping making both the week and our first "Meet the Artist" day a resounding success. We had over 770 people through during the week ... with 223 coming through on Saturday alone. A photographer from Yorkshire Living was in attendance and we should hopefully see an article in the near future.
Our new venue was a big hit with both members and public alike .. and we received many positive comments in the visitors book.
We should all be very proud of what we've been able to achieve by working together, and if anyone would like to get more involved in future exhibitions or serve on the sub-committee .. please just contact me using the details below.
We will be having a Lessons Learned meeting at the Black Swan on Peasholme Green towards the end of November to review how the exhibition went (what worked and what didn't), and to look at how we can improve going forward to move from strength to strength. If you would be interested in attending or have comments you would like me to put forward please let me know at Elizabeth_morgan1@hotmail.com , or by post at 5a Foss View, York. YO1 7NG.
We will be staying with York Theatre Royal De Grey Rooms for our 199th Spring Exhibition, which will be held from Monday 14th April up to and including Sunday 20th April 2014. We should be in a position to confirm dates for our much anticipated Autumn Bi-Centennial exhibition soon.
