    In terms of shows I have loved seeing every day, the gathering of great images from APUGgers that is hanging at Belmont Hill School is right up there. Every good thing must end, however, so I want to make the take down details public, in case folks who don't have anything here but would like to gather with us might join in.

    I had originally listed the show as ending on the 22nd, but made it the 24th so I could have it just a bit longer. If artists want to pick up the work at any time on Friday the 22nd however - or at any time during the working hours of the following week, that's fine. (We're here from 7:30 to 5 during the week, and the 5 can be stretched a bit.) If you want to come on Sunday, the 24th, we can make a party out of it. Any interest? If no one cares, I'll say 1 to 3 on Sunday the 24th or by PM. Early dinner as a group at Bertucci's?

    Whitey,
    I have to be in northern NH the following Thursday afternoon, so maybe I can come Wednesday afternoon to pick up my work. That would be the 27th. If you might be interested, I would be able to come up Tuesday and spend some time with some of your students and my 8x10, 5x7, and/or 4x5's. Let me know about this.

    James

    I'm good for either Sat or Sun, but I'll have to see how a couple of other things pan out to know for sure.

    Hope you've had some good feedback from students/faculty and parents! Saturday doesn't work for me, but I could probably do an early dinner on Sunday at Bertucci's. Otherwise, I'll pick up my work on Monday if an outing for Sunday doesn't pan out.

    Possibly Sunday late afternoon might work for me. If it happens, maybe the next person to use this folding camera will step forward!

    Saturdays are good for me, Sundays aren't. I may have to pick up my picture during the
    morning of the 22nd (Friday)....

    Whitey,

    I'll have to make private arrangements with you to collect my works, since I won't be able to come up there on the 24th. I will be in the Boston area on the 26th though. I'll PM you.

    Thanks very much for even having the show.

    Regards, Art.

    So will you be picking up your enlarger when you are in the area? I am only a few miles from the school...

    Hi Whitey!
    Sorry I haven't replied sooner, but I am having difficulty scheduling pick-up for this weekend or next week, so many things are coming up all at once here!

    So I'll have to say for now that this weekend is out, and I will try for sometime next week during your regular hours.

    Thanks again for hosting the show!
    Cheers, Krystyna

    rethink

    OK, Folks.
    Clearly there is no one time that makes sense for people to make any gathering at the end of the show. No problem.

    I will work out pick up times with anyone who cares to contact me. So far I'm taking various prints out to meet Gene part way to Springfield - probably Saturday. If you brought your work to him at the VPC, you'll probably have to contact him to get them back if you haven't spoken to me.

    I'm bringing Bill's to my house and meeting him there. I'm storing Art's, Jim's and Ed's work (and whomever else wants me to do so) for later pickup.

    Drew - do you want to come get your prints or should we arrange an exchange sometime in the future? John? Pete? Michael? I can easily put stuff away or use this as an excuse to have coffee some time. K? Bethe? Suzanne? Ryuji? Larry?

    I can still make a time to be here this weekend if that is what you expected and planned for.

    I can pick up either Sunday or Monday, but I sent you a PM, Whitey.

    If Whitey needs to get work outta there, I am more than happy to pick up any extra work if someone can't pick up this weekend or next week!

    Again, thanks for hosting, Whitey, and hope you are settling into the school year!

    Whitey, it looks like next Thursday morning at school for me. I will confirm early next week. Thanks for all you have done.

    Given my proximity to the school, Whitey, I can pick up the prints almost anytime outside of normal business an communiting hours- most weeknights after 6.30 and all weekend. If there is such a time that you will be there for someone else's pickup (perhaps for Suzanne on Sunday), let me know when and I will arrange to be there.

    I've just discovered that by saturday, I'll have gone off cape three times this week...and so a 4th trip off to pick up prints...or to do anything isn't going to happen! If Whitey can bury them somewhere or if someone can take them home and we'll meet up later, that would be great. Maybe some coffee on Broad St (great place for architectural photography) in Boston could be set up. Or, if someone would like to keep them, that would be great also. sorry 'bout that.

    Hi Folks! I am sorry that the take down and pick up is not going more smoothly. And I apologize for not being available this weekend to help...

    Whitey, would you be able/willing to bring my two photos along with the others when you meet Gene?

    Gene, is that okay with you? I can pick them up on Monday at VPC, or whenever it is convenient for you, it's a lot easier for me to get to Sprinfield next week than to Boston, I'd really appreciate it...

    Again, thanks to you Whitey, and Gene and Suzanne, for the opportunity to showcase our work! What do we do for an encore???

    Cheers, K

    No Problem

    Hey Folks

    All this end of show stuff is really no problem. I can make arrangements with all and sundry about pick up and store the work for a bit. As it stands now, I will not be coming in this weekend but will arrange for folks for the way they wish to meet. If anyone has a need to get the work this weekend, here, at my school, PM me or email me here

    Krystyna- No problem. I'll give your prints to Gene.
    Drew. Broad Street sounds intriguing. Stay in the land of sun and surf for now.

    Anyone who has not contacted me - Honest, I won't run off with your work. Just get in touch and we'll make arrangements. It's really sad for me to take down this show, it's been fun to live with all this great work for a month. The student paper is doing a story about the show and I REALLY don't want to part with it, but I will guard it carefully until you get it back.

    Thanks everyone.

    Whitey, It would be best for me to pickup on a weekend, but it certainly doesn't need to be this one. Let me know when you will be at the school on a weekend and I will try to make it. If that doesn't work, I guess I could use an excuse to get to Boston during the week.

    Thanks,

    Larry

    I can try to swing by on Tuesday or Wednesday during school hours - I'll be in Cambridge testifying one of those 2 days. The hitch is that I won't know which until probably Monday.
    Thanks for hosting the show!

    Hi, sorry I haven't logged in to APUG for many days and I lost track of this and the previous threads. So is there a meeting on Sunday? Or, if this story changed, is there any other person who arranged to pick up work on Sunday? I live in the city and driving out to Belmont after work is a sure way to get stuck in traffic (with my eco-friendly, leg-unfriendly stick shift car), so I prefer Sunday if this isn't a burden. (Sat is also possible.)

    Thanks for the nice show!

    THANK YOU WHITEY!

    I went to the VPC to pick up my photos today, and I want to thank you for carefully packaging and transporting our work to Gene, you certainly went out of your way to make sure our work arrived safely, and I very much appreciate it, you rock!!! :smile: :smile: :smile:

    Blessings,

    Hey Whitey, is Waltham anywhere near Belmont Hill? I have to go and visit PhotoPete next wednesday (late afternoon) and maybe I can pick up those prints that may or may not still be there....?

    drew ps, maybe some photography along the way in your area....
