      call SONYA GILMORE as soon as possible so she can find a replacement.

    THEREFORE ALL 4 ARTISTS
    [GOING OUT & GOING IN] MUST BE THERE AT THE SAME DATE AND TIME. 


    THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT THE HOSPITAL USES IT CUSTODIAL STAFF TO HANG AND TO LOCK YOUR PAINTINGS ON THE WALL.  THEY DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS TWICE AS THEY ARE ON JOBS FOR THE HOSPITAL.  IT IS A BIT TRYING, BUT THE HOSPITAL IS AN EXCELLENT PLACE TO EXHIBIT.    ARTIST MAY ALSO PARK AT EITHER END OF THE ENTRY DRIVE WAY AND YOU MAY LEAVE YOUR CAR UNTIL YOU ARE DONE.  YOU MAY ALSO USE A WHEEL CHAIR TO TAKE YOUR PAINTINGS TO THE EXHIBIT ARE
    * YOU CAN PULL INTO THE FRONT ENTRANCE AND PARK AS FAR DOWN ON EITHER END. [ DO NOT BLOCK THE ENTRANCE] YOU CAN THEN GO INTO THE HOSPITAL AND
     IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF PAINTINGS, PUT THEM IN A WHEELCHAIR AND PROCEED TO THE EXHIBIT AREA. JUST BE SURE THAT THE WHEEL CHAIR IS RETURNED WHERE YOU FOUND IT.

    RULES & REGULATIONS

    If you cannot pick up your works, PLEASE GET SOMEONE ELSE TO PICK IT UP FOR YOU.

    We have the utmost respect for all of our exhibit venues and we also remember that we represent the ELMIRA REGIONAL ART SOCIETY.  If you encounter a problem, then please let me, Sonya Gilmore, know and I will deal with it.

    OUR GOAL WITH THESE EXHIBITS IS TO BE PREPARED, TO GO IN AND REMOVE OR PUT UP YOUR PAINTINGS IN THE LESS AMOUNT OF TIME AS POSSIBLE, BUT ALSO ENOUGH TIME TO DO A GOOD LOOKING  EXHIBIT, TO MAKE AS LITTLE NOISE AND LOUD TALKING AS IS POSSIBLE. AND TO BE COURTEOUS TO ALL PATRONS, PEOPLE AND EXHIBIT EMPLOYEE'S.


    Be on time and ready to exchange with the other artist.  Do not expect the exhibit place to hold your paintings for a long length of time.  Be there to pick them up promptly unless you have a serious reason for not doing so.
     
    If you have a problem or a question, please call me with it.  Please answer the email or calls  that I may send to you regarding the exhibits.    If I do not hear back from you within a reasonable time, then the exhibit spot will go to some one else.
    Rules for missing exhibits are clearly listed in your ERAS  booklet.  Please use the ERAS site for most questions.
