Hope everyone is having a great start to the new year. Our RI club is very excited to host the second Alumni Exhibition, The Locals.
We are very excited to plan our next alumni exhibition, The Locals.
To help answer some questions, I am blogging here. The RISD RI Alumni Group had an amazing out pouring of enthusiasm and submissions to the first show, VICINITY.
It was a great success and we are happy to have a second, The Locals, Feb. 2nd. We are not accepting new submissions from the community due to reviewing the number of people we turned away for VICINITY. Again, our committee will need to review those already submitted pieces and will notify these alumni specifically to send a jpeg of their work, before final selection of the show. Due to space, diversity of pieces, size, medium, the committee cannot guarantee all work will be shown.
Please know that there will be many future exhibition opportunities and not all will take a gallery format. It’s exciting and we have been brainstorming other ways to show alumni work.
Please be patient as the committee works to compile The Locals, as you know we are all volunteers, and like everyone we have job, family, and other commitments that also need our attention. We’d like to thank our generous vendors, who include DWRI Letterpress, Mohawk Paper, Gansett Beer, Yacht Soda, and Nice Slice Pizza.
We appreciate all the positive feedback, and if anyone is interested in volunteering to help with this show, or future events, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
