FASST: Fine Arts Society of the Southern Tier

Fine Arts Society of the Southern Tier
Promoting the Arts in the Southern Tier of NY

TO: ALL FASST MEMBERS - CALLING ALL FASST ARTISTS

FROM: FASST  Board of Directors

DATE: March 26, 2018

SUBJECT: 120th Annual Members’ Show

The Board of Directors has finalized plans for this year’s annual members’ show.  We are pleased to announce that FASST will have a separate gallery at the Oakdale Mall for the show.  This space is located kitty corner to Bon-Ton, center court(next to Kay Jewelers).  In addition we will maintain our current gallery by Eddie Bauer. We are very fortunate as both galleries are in great locations to showcase our art. Sitting schedules will be available during signup for both locations-first come, first serve.

Number of awards will be dependent on number of artists participating and number of pieces in a category. The more artists who participates will result in an increase in awards. So, the Board is anticipating a great turnout. 

The reception will be held at the Vestal Library on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Cline’s will be catering once again. Joe Cline is out of town but when he returns, the Board will confirm the price with Joe  send them out to our members/guests.

   DUE TO NON-EMERGNECY--as in the past--the artist MUST make arrangements to change sitting with another artist. Once the change is identified, e-mail me as to the change and I will update the schedule. Please do not just remove art if you cannot sit as this leaves sitting gaps and display gap
