With the help of John Downs, we have secured a great place for our next local show before the turnover.  The Pritzker Military Library has agreed to host a show in September 2006.  They will provide us with their space, help us with sponsors for the cocktail party, and bring in a designer to design the show space for us.  The Library will also provide us with a brochure or possibly a catalog of the event.  They will scan our “unframed” work and some will be selected for the brochure.  The art will be framed by us as we have in the past.  In order to get all of this accomplished, we will have to have an earlier deadline than normal.

If you are planning on staying in Chicago during our opening at the Library please conact the Pritzker Military Library for great places to stay in that area.

July 30, 2006 - Unframed Art Work due
(This time will be used to jury, scan and frame the art.)

September 1, 2006 – Show will be hung in the Pritzker Military Library

September 8, 2006 – Tentaive Date for opening at Pritzker Military Library
October 9, 2006 – Show comes down; art will be crated and picked up by the Air Force.
October 20, 2006 – The Air Force turnover at Bolling Air Force Base

We have a unique opportunity at hand.  To receive the support of the Pritzker Military Library is great for our group.  We need to start working on our pieces early so that we can be ready by July 30, 2006. 

The Turnover information was outlined in the "Brush of Blue" newsletter that you should have already received from the program. If you have not received it yet and you would like to have a copy Bryan will have the document posted here on our site so that you can download it and print it.
