Our next Exhibit – Memories and Mementos

I hope everyone is working on artwork for the November/December “Memories & Mementos”! This exhibit will be the “holiday” exhibit and hopefully, the public will be out in droves shopping for the holidays!!
 
The opening reception will be Saturday, November 6th from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. We will also be having a booth at the Bel Air Farmers Market on Saturday, November 13th, a Fifth Anniversary in Armory Marketplace celebration on the weekend of November 19-21, and Small Business Saturday if November 27 and Artists’ Sunday on November 28. LOTS going on in November and December!! Make sure you get your artwork ready for this exhibit — and have back ups for when they sell!
 

Call for Volunteers!

With the restart of events, we are looking for volunteers to head up committees as well as to be a part in helping out. The following is a list of positions we are looking to fill. Please remember that other than the Gallery Manager, the entire organization is volunteer run! Even if all you can do is help out for an hour or two at one event, please consider volunteering. 
 
Needed positions:
  • Satellite Coordinators: Manage all aspects of satellite, including change-outs and sale replacements. Must maintain inventory log and reconciliation.
  • Event Director: Oversee and schedule events including major fundraisers for the organization. Appoint event coordinators to head each individual event and help find event committee members as well as work with event committee 
  • Event volunteers: Help event director with details of events throughout the year. May include setting up for event and clean up after. 
  • Workshop Coordinator: coordinate all requests for workshops and/or find people to hold workshops. Set up workshops on HAA Facebook page as an event and liaise with webmaster to have workshops posted to website. Must be present at all workshops as Association rep to open/close Gallery and make sure rules are followed. This does not have to be just one person!
If you cannot commit to handling the position “full time”, maybe you’d like to volunteer to be the back up?  A second person who could work on the website or someone to help handle the accounts payable and receivable is always welcome!
 
Any and all individuals are encouraged to let us know what help you can provide. Please contact Susan at the Gallery at 410.420.9499 or haapresident@artinharford.org.

HAA Merch!

We have opened orders for our HAA Logo Polo Shirts again! Pricing starts around $25.00. The Polo’s are available in a wide variety of colors and sizes, as well as in short sleeve or long sleeve. All POLO orders must be placed in the Gallery along with pre-payment before we can place the order. The manufacturer can only print in quantities of 12 or more, so as long as we get at least 12 orders, we will be going ahead with printing. 
 
We’ve also created a Giving Campaign through Bonfire.com!  Every t-shirt and tote is made to order and shipped in batches at the end of the campaign.  Grab your HAA Merch before the clock runs down!
