The opening and indeed the launch of the festival is between 12 noon and 2pm on Saturday 19th January 2013. The festival now has its own domain name: www.HerringIslandFestival.org.au
Thanks to the Contemporary Art Society of Victoria for auspicing the process of acquiring the domain.
As usual - with the end of year panic - entries have been slow to come in so *sigh* the deadline has been softened - you can have another few days - and the website will not demand an image of your work - sketches or images can be emailed to: email@example.com.
Yes it’s a tough gig being organised at this time of year - witness this being a combined November December newsletter - but the rewards of the effort are great. We all have a lot of fun on the island - a bush holiday that takes minimal time to get there and you can go out to dinner afterwards - or even take a river cruise if you are flush with funds after selling all your work.
Invitations will be sent out shortly.
Even if you are not exhibiting you are welcome to demonstrate sculpture in the courtyard or sit the exhibition - that’s a great way to meet some interesting people and to check out the island for next time.
Looking for ward to seeing you there.
