CAS Winter Exhibition 2015

Colchester Art Society


President: Simon Carter Chairman: Bryan Whiteley


Dear Member,

You are warmly invited to participate in the Colchester Art Society Winter Exhibition in the Ballroom at The Minories Galleries. The exhibition there last year was of a high standard and with the introduction of browsers and cards there was an additional dimension that proved very successful. We are confident that the response this time will be equally as good and we look forward to an excellent show.

Your Committee is well aware of the difficulties posed for some members at The Minories but with the appointment of Julie Rosoman as Business Manager we are hopeful of being able to negotiate a change at some point in the future.

As you know all CAS exhibitions are selected by a Committee, so it is inevitable that some people will be disappointed. However, as you are able to submit unframed work and greetings cards, which will not be subject to selection, there is an opportunity for everyone to have something included.

Could I remind you that careful record keeping is essential so that artists receive all the sales money due to them. Please read the forms carefully and keep a copy for your own records. If you would like to submit greetings cards, printed or handmade, do make sure that your name is on the back, that they are individually priced in increments of 50p and put into cellophane sleeves for protection.

If you wish to participate, and I hope that you will, it would be appreciated if you could follow the attached instructions, fill in the form carefully and return it together with your cheque for £15/£10, as appropriate, as soon as possible but no later than Monday 26th October. Those wishing to submit 3D work can do so by going on-line and sending at least two views of each piece of work to [email protected] Alternatively, 3D artists can submit photographs of their work with the submission form. 3D artists will be notified by 2nd November as to whether their work has been accepted.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing you and your guests at the Private View on Saturday, 7th November between 11am and 1pm.

Best Wishes

Bryan Whiteley
