The GBW Northwest Chapter is going to hold a meeting on Sunday Jan. 10, 2010, 1:00pm at 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland. We earnestly invite all of you to come! This is a chance for members of this newish and far-flung chapter to share ideas, do some planning, and get to know each other a little better.
Since some members will be in town for the College Book Art Association conference, we've set up the meeting for the day after that wraps up. Hopefully it will also be convenient for others who can make it to Portland just for the day or weekend.
Some topics our chapter chair, Paula Jull, has placed on the agenda: An exchange exhibit, possibly with the Northeast Chapter. A possible workshop in the spring with Don Etherington. The chance to elect, reelect, or expand our roster of officers. Anything else could be on the table, so please let Paula know if there's a topic you want to make sure gets covered.
23 Sandy Gallery is located on Portland's east side and is owned by GBW member Laura Russell. On display between Dec. 4 and Jan. 10 will be the juried book arts show, The Assignment. We'd also like to encourage members to bring books or other work to the meeting, so we all have a chance to see what others are up to. The chapter will arrange and pay for food and refreshments. We'll send out an e-mail as we get closer to the event to provide further information.
Hope to see you there!
