A special Christmas exhibition provided by members of North East Artisans
Friday December 6 2019 to Thursday January 9 2020
'$50 Christmas' is an exhibition of affordable artwork by members of the North East Artisans made or selected to meet the Christmas Season’s tradition of giving gifts. Our '$50 Christmas' exhibition provides gift opportunities which will be thoughtful, individual and have high personal and human value. Although the price of the artworks is fixed at a ridiculously low $50 – this is meant as a humorous and ironic gesture – but really - it is NEA's gift to Benalla's Festive Season. We're not making any money here....
The idea of the exhibition is to bring NEA's exhibition space into the commercial domain with a $50 splash opportunity for the Festive Season commercial mayhem period. There is no entry fee (waived) but the 20% commission stands - so the "in hand" artist payment for sold works will be $40. We hope the exhibition will help the Gallery Shop as well....if there's nothing in the exhibition then try the shop....
The exhibition runs from Friday December 6 to Thursday January 9. Works are to be dropped off on Tuesday 3rd December from 10 am to 4 pm and collected on 10 January from 10 am to 4 pm. Further details are available on the attached Conditions and Application form.
We don't expect members to give works away - but if there is oldish stock or an idea for a less labour intensive artwork than usual this is the time to bring it forward
The EXHIBITION team - simon, bev, cathy, frank and grace (and sometimes Tim)
The Exhibition team is sending out invitations today to NEA members to enter works in the '$50' Christmas exhibition. If you are thinking of entering, or find yourself talking to a member who may be interested, the work entered doesn't need to be new work, can be concepts you are currently developing.
Entries are due in next Tuesday 3rd December, although there will be some grace as the opening isn't until Friday 6 December.
Please check out the web post below, the Conditions and Application form, and the poster developed by Tim Bowtell in response to an invitation by Simon Klose, Exhibitions team leader. It's already causing lots of discussion... which is what art's all about! (If you are aware of rapper 50 Cents...or Fiddycents you'll understand the connection!)

An in-house Christmas exhibition provided by artists of the North East Artisans
Friday December 6 2019 to Thursday January 9 2020
North East Artisans 122 Bridge Street Benalla
$50 is an exhibition of artworks by members of the North East Artisans made or selected to meet the Christmas Season’s tradition of giving gifts and presents which are thoughtful, individual and have high personal and human value. Although the price of the artworks is fixed at a ridiculously low $50 – this is meant as a humorous and ironic gesture – it is the choice of the artists to determine their own contribution to the equation of principles and ideas.
Don’t expect works to be glazed and framed = although some may be – but expect a great gift opportunity provided by people who share the North East with us and want to provide a positive human contribution to the seasons character.
We've just received the news that the Postcards response show is opening later today (November 9) at Beacon Arts Riverwinds Gallery in New York. Love the title = 'Air Mail: Artist Postcards from Oz'. We've received first image, along with a link to the exhibition information on the Gallery's website. If you are planning a trip to NY, the show runs through to December 8.

It's almost time for the end of year exhibition of work by students from the Flexible Learning Centre, which is scheduled for Tuesday 19 to Saturday 30 November.
This round up of April's exhibition of work 'Kaleidoscope of Colour' on the NEFLC website is interesting to read. (Click on the image for a clearer view).
