so in future please do not use an image without permission from the artist . As i have had a request on not to use an image . Lets avoid this .

we all really need to hassle them to give us one . this is really important to gallery and the forest . And it is part of the deal that they cooperate with the request of the gallery.

it would be good to have a list of all the places we think would be good to put posters and fliers in and then take responsibility for them. we could divide places between us and take posters etc after our meeting to distribute that month. at the moment i have only done lsa. there is also coburg studios near school too. maybe this could be done at meeting? or if everyone writes here where they are going we can see where is getting missed.
i feel bad because martin makes all these great posters and i don't plaster them across edinburgh's art scene!

i have emailed Martin and TK@yahoo the press release for Peter Williams.

Please also consider the following communication:
"You may notice that I only need the
space for one week Monday 2nd till sunday 8th due to other commitments, But there
are two people I know who would like to exhibite 2D works in the gallery on the
second week if that is possible. They would set up on the Monday 9th and take down
on the sunday 15th. Their names are Lottie Lindsay and Amelia Pace they can send you
images if you need but they will self publicise their exhibition and I can split the fifty
Pounds budget with them so there is no extra work for you entailed.
If this is to much trouble then don't worry they can re-apply for the space at a later date."

Poster from Matias for the Marmots, he would like to have his party on the 19th if that's ok.

I did explain to him that we normally prefer closing parties but he's pretty adamant he wants it on the 19th. Given that our rational for closing parties is that it allows people to speak to the artist about the work and he's around the forest a lot anyway i think people can speak to him about the show pretty much any time, so I think this is ok. Any other thoughts on this?

i think it would be good if we all took responsibility for 2-3 venues to put posters up now that we have the one month shows, if we start small. places where we go ie work or school or forest, then we can choose more places in the future. at least it means we get the posters up regularly and people see they are changed and that we are doing stuff.
i have chosen: leith school of art, coburg studios, arts complex and forest.
when you are the link person for a show then it would be good to make sure the poster is ready the week before the show for distribution.

one of the things i'm working on is streamlining the promo for the gallery. Im working with illaria on the materials so that the EVS's can do the dissemination: to the press, as flyers and on the web. So, we are figuring how we get the info from the artist in their application, and how they can slot it in to these 3 groups of promo easily. The only thing we ( va commitee) will do is, ( apart from selecting the programme for the gallery and communicating with the artist) , is to generate the flyer. The evs can print it and take it around. So we are working on lists maps and clear instructions. We will do this in the next 2 months, and we will bring the plans to our january meeting ( its now officially on the agenda... :) )

untill then, im not sure how it works, but i could take on , eh, the arts library ( that takes care of all the libraries) ( and i can do a limited colour print run for this in my house)

This sounds good

problem for me is that i don't find myself in any of the places we want the posters to be on a regular enough basis. I am however, on the internet most days so could take care of the online side of things.

Might be worth our while setting up a facebook fan page...

just a wee note about making posters

what i need is a good quality image , the dates of the show , name of the artist /title of the show and anything else that needs to be put on it .

please send this to me in one email . this makes it easy for me to make the poster . am not going to chase info up .

also it is good to encourage them to make one themselves .
