note re: invite & poster design for 10th Annual SFSA Art Exhibition

Just a note...
To all interested parties including the blogger who asked me about this...

Design materials for invites & posters to the 10th Annual Student, Faculty, Staff & Alumni Art Exhibition must come from those parties listed above... that's the fun of it, students, faculty, staff or alumni can get their artwork and design skills splashed around all over!
The original deadline for materials was January 6th, but it has been extended to the 13th... this Friday (yikes.... Friday the 13th... would that be a lucky or unlucky day to submit designs?).

Anyway, give me a call at the Gallery or send me an email if you're interested.

In addition to our exhibitions, the Art Gallery will be opening a Reading Room for the general public as well as the University community. This will be located in the current sculpture court area and will make the Art Gallery's collection of art books and journals much more accessible. This should be available in February.
Also, keep your eyes turned to the blog for updates about lectures, workshops, and other events relating to our great exhibitions.
