SAQA Oregon "Exploring Layers" at Pioneer Place, Portland

As you know, "Exploring Layers' will be having a glorious finale at the Air Gallery in Pioneer Place Mall in Portland from April 16 to May 16. It's a great opportunity for SAQA - a central and much-visited location, a beautiful gallery, we share opening and closing receptions with the other three art galleries on the 3rd floor of Pioneer Place - so we will have lots of visitors, roaming from one gallery to another - plus a special reception on Saturday May 2 (1 to 3 pm) , timed to coincide with the "Fiberlandia" conference.

Many of you have already signed up for shifts to host the gallery; thank you! but we still have a few shifts uncovered, and we really, really do not want to have to close the gallery for several hours at a time because we lack volunteer hosts. On behalf of Betty Daggett and Jean Wells, who have both been working really hard to set this up, I'm making a final appeal for people to sign up for these last few spaces. If you haven't signed up for a shift yet, we really do need you; if you have already signed up, please try to squeeze in one extra shift - it will be fun, and you'll be doing a real service to SAQA and to your fellow artists. 

Here is a list of the open shifts; please respond directly to Betty Daggett: Bdavis

Thursday April 16, 12 noon to 3 pm - OPENING DAY!
Sunday April 26, 12 noon to 3 pm
Thursday May 14, noon to 3 pm
Thursday May 14, 3 to 6 pm
Friday May 15, 3 to 6 pm

We are so close; I know we can do this if everyone chips in. We'll look forward to hearing from you!

Let's make sure we also have a great crowd at the 3 (count 'em!) receptions:

Opening reception: Saturday April 18, 5 to 9 pm
Special SAQA reception: Saturday May 2, 1 to 3 pm
Closing reception: Saturday May 16, 5 to 9 pm
