SELECTION DAY FOR EXHIBITING MEMBERS
Due to the exceptional circumstances generated by Covid 19 and the impact it is having, we have decided to defer Selection Day to when it is hoped that the situation will have improved permanently. In previous years the Spring Exhibition was for all members and the Autumn Exhibition was for exhibiting members only. However for the immediate future all exhibitions are open to all members although of course there may be selection processes as part of setting up and managing the show.

CRAFT FAIR at WEST HORSLEY PLACE – 25, 26, 27 NOV 2022
Craftwork is welcome, entirely created by the maker and not too large. They will be displayed on a central table running the length of the room. Five items of craftwork may be entered.
Those artists entering crafts need to bring them to West Horsley Place. It would be useful to have these entry forms for craftwork in advance, so we know roughly what to expect. So please send your entry form to Ingrid in advance by email at email@example.com. However, please also bring with you to WHP a list of craftworks you are submitting, headed clearly with your name, phone number and email address. A copy of your entry form would do.
Craft exhibitors will need to deliver their work in person directly to WHP at 9.30 am prompt on Thursday 25th November. Please do not bring them to the collection point for folios.
Collection for unsold items will be on Monday 28 November from 10:00 to 12:00 hours at WHP.
This Craft Fair at West Horsley Place will now be folios only, apart from craftwork, with NO framed or hanging works except by invitation and there will be no cards at this craft fair.
Up to 5 folios per member artist may be submitted. Please use the entry form to record the details of your folios. Label each folio with the artist’s name, the title of the work and the price.
Folios should be delivered to our designated delivery point, the address below this paragraph, on Wednesday 23 November, between 10 am - 3 pm, together with your filled-in entry form. Download the template entry form by clicking on this link. Knock on the door on arrival, identify yourself and hand over your entry form and folios.
Dr David G Jobson, 8 Kestrel Close, Merrow Park, Guildford, GU4 7DR.
Displays of artwork will be in browsers, easels and on desktop easels on tables in the centre of the room. Please volunteer your browser stands if you have some and bring them with your folios to David. Make sure your name is on them so they can be returned.
Commission will be at 15% and there is no entry fee.
Remember to bring wrapped artwork only, cellophane-wrapped, and professional, high-quality presentation. Do not use clingfilm under any circumstances.
Collection for unsold items will be on Monday 28 November from 10:00 to 12:00 hours at West Horsley Place.

Exhibition at Shalford, August 2022
2022 AUGUST EXHIBITION at SHALFORD by Ingrid Skoglund
A well-received exhibition with locals who were very supportive and seemed proud to have our show in their village. Visitors exceed an average of 100 per day. The AA roadsigns and the flags were a major draw. Ease of parking, accessibility and generous opening hours helped with footfall.
Sales exceeded £8000 for 49 items including 29 browsers and 13 hanging works. Craftwork sold well - 7 items plus numerous pretty earrings by Hannah Bruce. The reserve painting concept worked. Buyers took their purchases without creating a gap.
We have booked the event again for the same time in 2023 so get creating.
Ingrid and Annmarie thank all the members too numerous to mention who worked so hard and so creatively to make this exhibition such a success.
