This year's Annual Exhibition at Bridport Arts Centre will be set up on Sunday 16th October - with a preview that evening, it will end on Saturday 29th October. The center is not open on Sundays and Mondays.
We are negotiating with Bridport Arts Centre to enhance this year's exhibition with a host of additional features to drum up enthusiasm and increase sales. This will require some effort, but should be worthwhile.
We will be running demonstrations and workshops during the event - targeting the busy days Wednesdays and Saturdays in particular.
The Foyer and Cafe walls are available for us to mount an exhibition of photographs - these will feature potters at work, their processes, kilns and supporting text. We have a couple of professional photographers interested in being part of this display, they will visit potters and take the photographs and help to produce the versions for display - but potters can also submit their own images and text. We hope to produce a high quality and uniform display of images and text, which will take some work to produce. We hope to get a bit of funding, but potters will also be able to buy the images themselves and have copyright to use them for other purposes.
Members (old, new and potential) will be receiving email alerts about these opportunities, but are encouraged to contact us immediately if they wish to be involved with the management of the event or some of the activities.
