The show is scheduled to run from January 11-29
The Club has agreed it will be a national show with two jurors.
Entry fee is $20.00 & free to current H.O.T. Clay members.

Hannah will research and contact alternative gallery spaces:
Thomas Center
Media Image Gallery

*If the exhibition takes place in Focus Gallery, the work will not be able to be insured.
Possible solutions:
Pay for security
Work study Student Docent
H.O.T. Clay Members sit gallery shifts
Find alternative locations that will insure the work

Any solution that involves using the Focus Gallery will have to be finalized with Amy Vigilante, the University of Florida’s Gallery director.

A pedestal upkeep committee will meet over the summer to repair and finalize storage for club pedestals. Anyone remaining here in the summer please contact Ben Carter to sign up for this committee.

Regardless of who uses the pedestals, all pedestals must be returned to a white base.
Seniors, Post-baccs and Certificate students must repaint the pedestals that have been used for “ceramic Six Pack” exhibition white before they return them to the kiln room.

Focus Gallery, Dean’s Office Display Cases: summer 2009
Smaller works that can fit in the vitrines in the main hallway outside of the dean’s office are in need of work to be displayed.

Focus Gallery will be empty for a large part of the summer, H.O.T. Clay would like to propose a show exhibiting member work for this time. Chandra DeBuse has agreed to contact Amy Vigilante about setting this exhibition up.
