EVENT: Go Arts Festival, Downtown ABQ

Attention Chapter 219! This coming weekend is the Go! Arts Festival in downtown Albuquerque and for the second year in a row we will have a booth to promote our work and our group. However, we do plan to do things a little differently this year. Instead of collecting artworks from as many members as possible and setting-up everyday, we will have one or two tables with a selection of 2-3 member pieces on display and a good supply of our brochures to hand out to interested artists. We will also be selling prints and note cards - if anyone would like to submit these items, please contact Midge. We woud like to have at least one 'information' person and one person demonstrating at the booth at all times - alternates are welcome. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Midge ASAP as we need to get all arrangements finalized before Friday.

Friday, September 25 11am-9pm
Saturday, September 26 11am-8pm (booth will close during meeting time)
Sunday, September 27 11am-5pm

Additional information can be found at the link included above.

Thanks so much!
