Exhibit Prospectus: OSA & PSC Joint Show Prospectus 2018

The Portland Society for Calligraphy, along with the Oregon Society of Artists, is pleased to announce a non-juried joint show running July 8–31 at OSA. The theme is “Text and Texture,” so start getting those pen nibs wet and your creativity flowing.
 
This collaboration has been two years in the making and is our very first show with OSA, which will give us the opportunity to show our work in a bona fide gallery! This will bring the promise of new exposure for PSC and for calligraphy/lettering arts. PSC has also invited high school students to participate and is underwriting their entry fees.
 
OSA would like us to enter 60 pieces, and each artist can enter up to three, for a reasonable total entry fee of $25. A 15% commission will be collected on any sold work—a bargain when you consider that most galleries take 40%!
 
Please notify JoAnn Pari-Mueller (hungarianjo@aol.com) by July 1 with your intent to enter the show and the number of framed pieces you will be bringing. This will help us properly estimate the number of works in the show.
 
The show opens with a reception on Sunday, July 8, 1:00–3:00 pm.
 
As usual, we can’t do this without you, our members. Exhibitors will be asked to volunteer for gallery sitting, but we do need additional volunteers for take in, hanging, as well as the reception. Please let JoAnn know if you are able to volunteer for any of the following dates:
 
  • July 5 & 6: artwork take-in
  • July 7: show hanging
  • July 8: reception
 
There will be also be show postcards to hand out at the June member meeting.
 
Please read the prospectus carefully. If you have any questions, or can’t make the June meeting and need some show postcards, please contact JoAnn Pari-Mueller.
 
We’re so excited about this wonderful opportunity!
