Hello fellow circlers
Our March meeting.
There was nothing formally arranged for the evening so it gave an ideal opportunity for an in depth discussion on our recent exhibitions.
Our annual exhibition was once again highly successful attracting many appreciative visitors, Staff at the Auld Kirk Museum was kind enough to send me photocopies of the Visitor's Book pages so that we could all read the comments. They confirmed the response from Museum visitors was excellent and that they look forward to our next exhibition there.
Our annual lunch at Ashtree House Hotel to open our latest exhibition was very successful with a total of 40 attending including partners and guests.
From these two exhibitions we sold a total of four prints.
Our best success was undoubtedly Crosshouse hospital where our prints were beautifully displayed and attracted hundreds of visitors.
Sales totaled an incredible twenty prints, mostly framed, One person purchased seven prints.
The evening was subsequently taken up with an in depth discussion on how to improve our sales system and the quality of our presentation of prints sold.
Many points of view on this subject were given but it was finally agreed that it was better to sell only unframed but mounted prints. These will be handed over at the end of each exhibition.
To round off a lively night, we celebrated the birthday of Douglas Harris and the forthcoming birthdays of Bill Doig and Robert Morrison with a coffee and some birthday cake kindly provided by Sheena Thomson.
Many happy returns to all three of you !!!!
