Dear Crossing Borders members
I have arranged with the tourist boards to display work for the run up to the Art Trail 2011.
I will set up at Melrose and Kelso, so will need other people to set up the remaining tourist venues.
date: Work is to be set up the last week in July and run until the mid September.
Hawick One Shelf
Selkirk It may be possible to have two small window ledges (although it may be possible to have work in the museum)
They are concerned with theft at this venue.
Peebles Window display and one glass cabinet.
Jedburgh One large display shelf
Eyemouth Shelving behind the desk
Kelso Window Display
Melrose Glass cabine
We have also been offered the use of the glass cabinets in the Council foyer in Newtown St Boswells.
They would like us to organize changing displays throughout the year. This would require quite a lot of work but they do employ a lot of people in the Borders!
Alternatively someone could do a display for the Art Trail and see if this is a worth while venue.
cost: They have agreed to this, as it is seen as promoting an event, rather than members of the tourist board. Please note the tourist board will not cover for any damage, therefore all work will be displayed at your own risk!
contact: Any body interested in taking part please contact me as soon as possible.
