CONFIRMED 2016 EXHIBITIONS FOR AOI MEMBERS
1. Invitation by Brigid Marlin: Summer Exhibition in a Park Gallery near Dresden, Germanyto exhibit in Dresden, Germany. FREE to all members. Commission on sales of 15%!
Karl Dominick, the owner of the Gallery and the fish company that finances it, has invited the Society for Art of Imagination to exhibit in his gallery from 28th August until end of October 2016.
The hanging and setting up will take place on August 26th. The Gallery can exhibit over 300 artworks.
The fish company commercially raises fish in special ponds. In mid September the owner organizes a very big party for fishermen. Several thousands people attend every year. They visit the Park Gallery and visit all the exhibition rooms, and many buy artwork. Although the Park Gallery is not in the center of a big town, it attracts more visitors than a town gallery.
I would suggest to all artists, wanting to take part, that paintings containing a ‘fish’ element are more liable to sell!
2. An Exhibition at Xpolination Gallery in Maidstone, UK. Only £15 for members for up to 3 paintings!
Exhibition in the Maidstone Gallery:
The Society received an invitation to exhibit in a gallery in Maidstone*, Michel de St Ouen and I went down to see it, and liked the gallery very much. It is situated in charming area and is composed of timbered group of houses, so that the rooms are of different shapes and sizes which sets off the artwork beautifully!
The Gallery owner is a delightful person, an artist herself. She has worked in the cause of art for most of her life, even teaching art in prisons to help the prisoners find hope through their art.
We are invited to show there from 7th October to 4th November 2016. The Gallery has enough room for over 300 artworks, which would give all members a chance to show their work.
Full details of these exhibitions will be emailed to all our members well in advance.
*Maidstone is the county town of Kent, England, 32 miles south-east of London. The River Medway runs through the centre of the town, linking it with Rochester and the Thames Estuary. There is an excellent train service to London.
