Payment deadline delayed....

Yes yes....NO stress guys....the payment deadline has been delayed..
I really need to talk to everyone that I haven't spoken to already (pray soon sweet artistes) and then make a new one that will suit y'all...and not leave any financial lurches looming...still waiting to hear from those MIA to confirm your full commitment...need to know NOW if you are gunna pull out...there has already been one...Sky am going to next artist on waiting list...will let you know when confirmed...

I've been making videos as part of my work and am loving it...could do with some advice/ideas on best way to present.

Hope you are all enjoying doing your own special creative thangs...can't wait to see the proposals and even more excited about seeing the completed versions...or get a nice big surprise because you change your mind.....will try to keep the publicity a bit vague about the exact nature of each artists work for the show...maybe ....what do you think?....I'm not really a strict machine....more a delicate pastry....I may be doing this all wrong so please feel free to whip my cream.....still only two blog followers....don't be afraid to make comments and post pics etc??

Should I post one of my vids??

Should I stop asking questions????......

Deadlines for propsals and payment for RAGTIME show in October

Hello RAGsters,
Only 4 members made it to the last meeting last Sunday but we nutted out some details and made some decisions about deadlines and requirements. Pleas put these dates in your diaries and call me if you have any questions.
It would be great if we could get all the members that are exhibiting in the October RAGTIME show to get together before the exhibition and we thought we could do this mid August.
Sunday 21st August at 3pm....let me know ASAP if you can't make this.

I don't have all the mobile numbers for everyone so if you could send me an email with all your contact details that would be helpful.

Make sure you follow the blog and contribute and we encourage each artist to promote the show and your work on the blog and other sites. Post some images of you work and some artist info.
A website is in the works - will keep you posted.

I need to do a press release I need to get a brief bio and a jpg work sample from each of you...can be previous work.

**RAGTIME exhibition deadlines:
Friday 24th June
(next Friday)
Sample and brief bio

Friday 1st July: Proposals outlining your work for the show (including gallery requirements like size and weight) and payment of your share of gallery fee ($330)
The gallery has both plaster and brick walls - D rings , FX hanging system and pins acceptable
please let us know of any special requirements or power access issues etc.
You will get an artists agreement and a receipt.
(we need this to plan show effectively and confirm your commitment)
If you can't make deadlines and want to pull out it is urgent you let me know immediately as there is a waiting list of artists who want to participate.

Friday 5th August: Payment for your share of promotional and opening costs (to be advised soon)

Friday 16th September: aim to have work completed

RAGTIME Turn of the Centuries 1920 -2020
3rd - 16th of October
Opening Wednesday 5th of October
Drinks with the artists Friday 14th October

I will post an update soon with the dates/exact times for gallery drop off and pick up of your work.

Now go forth and create your lil' hearts out and promote RAGTIME bigtime.

Call me if you have any ideas, concerns, offers, etc - whatever.
You should all have my mobile number by now but if not message me quick.

I think that's everything...comment on blog and message me if I've missed something.
Also it would be a great help if you could follow the blog and respond promptly to posts so I don't have to chase everyone up. Cheers ma dears.

Ok groovers

Double YAY for us

next meeting for RAG group postponed

Hi all,

I'm hoping it will be ok with all you lovely people if we postpone the meeting scheduled for this Sunday 5th May 3pm. (tom) until the following weekend.
I have been very unwell and although on the mend it would be more likely I'll be up to it by next week.
Let me know what time and if you would prefer fri 10th, sat 11th or sun 12th and we'll go with the time that most can do.
Apologies if the change has scuppered plans.
Please let me know when you get this message so that I know everyone has read it and so you can let me know your preferred time for the next meeting.

Sorry Ragsters...will be firing all boosters in no time...FABRAG!
