Rich Couture had news from the Art's Council of Southwest Indiana. They have agreed to host a presentation of 30 to 40 pieces of our club's work during the first two weeks of May. A reception is being planned to "kick off" the event. The turnings will need a one line description of the wood and the price, if for sale. Questions still unanswered are; will they sell them for us, what % will the Council take if any, the date and time of the reception along with expectations that go with this. Rich will share additional information as it becomes available.
Susan Hansen announced The Bitterman Mini Shoppes (204 Main St., Evansville) will sell our club's turnings for a 35% fee. Chandra Maxheimer is the manager and can be reached at 812-205-1920. Rich Couture mentioned the Old Mill in Jasper will sell our club's turnings for a 35% fee. Contact Rich and he will put you in touch with the appropriate contact.
