 SOLO EXHIBITS

We started having some of the artists doing LARGE solo exhibits as lots of them have a lot of paintings and it is also something different to do.  Most of the exhibit places are solo anyway, but entail only small amounts of paintings.

The LARGE Solo exhibits are--APPLE RIDGE & the COLONY.  Any artist who has enough paintings 30-50 may ask for a solo exhibit if there is the space.  I do have space at the Colony, so just call me and I will talk to you.

Rules for missing exhibits are clearly listed in your ERAS  booklet.  Please use the ERAS site for most questions.
