Last year we held the first Members-only exhibition at Royston Museum and Art Gallery. It was successful and the Committee decided to hold another exhibition at the Museum this year and, if possible, in forthcoming years.
This year the Members Exhibition will run from 20th May 2017 through to 15th July 2017. There will be a preview on Friday 19th May 2017 between 7.30 and 9.30pm. All RAS members are invited to attend this preview and bring their friends and family, whether or not they have exhibited any paintings.
The handing-in day for paintings is Monday 15th May between 2.00 and 4.30pm.
The checking out day is Monday 17th July 2017 between 10.00 and 12.00am.
Last year when a painting was sold the purchaser was allowed to take it away there and then. The Museum Curator then invited the artist to replace the sold painting with another painting of similar size and format (so that it can be hung in the same space). Last year several artists sold more paintings than they had originally exhibited and we are planning a similar operation this year.
RAS Members can enter up to two framed paintings, 4 unframed paintings and up to 25 cards. There is a small hanging fee to cover the cost of hiring the Museum and producing leaflets etc… details of which can can be found on the entry form.
If you would like to enter some paintings them simply download the attached entry form by clicking HERE, print it out and return it to Chairman Richard Clayton at the address on the form.
The deadline for returning your Exhibition Entry form is THURSDAY 27th APRIL 2017 and the exhibition is for fully paid up RAS members only! So, if you have not already renewed your RAS membership then please click HERE to download.
