This is a note from Annie Golding, who has unfortunately fallen ill – so the finalising of exhibition details will be by the staff listed at the end,
It is now only 3 months to the Exhibition and plans for 'Visions at Heritage 09' are progressing well. We have 12 professional artists, 2 professional photographers and over 35 sculptures to be exhibited as well as we are expecting over 200 paintings in the Art & Photography Show. We have secured sponsors for the prizes for the Art Show and for the silent auction. There is $2800 in prize money (at the moment) and items for the silent auction such as weekends at the Cumberland, Marysville, gold Village passes, weekends at the Park Hyatt, the Sea Temple, Port Douglas, a beautiful Bob Nelson print, weekends at the Hunter Valley, a Harley Davidson ride, dinners at the Stokehouse and Becco restaurants and many more. These will be available for bids for 2 weeks before the Exhibition and finalised at the special Sunday lunch with Peter Brocklehurst.
As a novel way to raise money for our reciprocal charity - Brainlink - we are asking if any professional artist or sculptor would be interested in painting or carving a golf ball(s) to be included in the silent auction. If you would like to have a go at doing this, could you please let me know so I can mail you the golf balls. We will present them on silver tees and glass stands. Please sign your works as I'm sure they will become collectors items. We thank Di King for her generous donation of her painting ' Soft Morning Light' which is to be raffled. Tickets are available now for $5.
Melbourne Airport has kindly donated $500 to a People's Choice for sculpture.
There is a proposed flyer for the Exhibition with all the information. This will be printed as a trifold A4 and will be sent out by the end of the month.
All information will be shortly available on the website www.hgcc.com.au. including an entry form if you would like to pass it on to any emerging artists or photographers who would like to enter the Art Show. Entries are open from now until Jan 2nd 09.
Could I please remind the sculptors that your photos and forms need to be sent to me by the 1st week in Nov so we can finalise the catalogue.
I thank everyone for their support and help. I'm sure it will be a very successful Exhibition and I look forward to catching up with everyone in the future.
