    Talked to Joinery today, they are a contemporary art space, the contemporary bit was stressed, as an example she said they would not show say " documentary photography". No rants please ! Suggested we send in a proposal with some images and she would make contact in a week or two , outlining costs and conditions if they were interested. Reading between the lines I know our photography is not what they like to show, but in my experience these galleries need to survive and mainstream photography is appreciated as much if not more than most forms of contemporary photography or art so it might still be worth submitting a proposal.

    Checked out monstertruck and like Alan said they have a week free in November 2009 , most of their exhibitions are now two weeks. I was talking to Peter from the gallery, very friendly, who said their approach again was moving more towards the contemporary but he had a more open approach than Joinery. I put the emphasis on the film angle. The gallery is small made up of two rooms with a half dividing wall. Its such an informal space, very informal you could easily hang 40+ small to medium prints. Like joinery they would need to see the work. The cost would be €500 for the week. Marketing and help with design and layout is provided. We would need to check if they take a further commission and require our help in manning the exhibition.

    If we are going to try secure either of these galleries we need to make some quick decisions and get some scans together.

    Why is Dundrum not an option this year ??.

    I think you should. At least we know whether it's an option then ...

    Good work Eddie, by the way! Food for thought ....
    I have a photo blog ... and a Flickr ...

    I would Fintan, might be the easiest option the fact you know the galley well. I know you did a lot of work last year with Peter but it should be easier second time around.

    It's a long shot Eddie, it was agreed in january and unfortunately we're nearly at june. But theres no harm in trying.

    Peter's a good guy, as is Niall (That's if Niall is still working there). I'd be on good talking terms with both, and a few other folk involved in there.

    If there's more interest in Monster Truck, I might pop up in a bit.

    If there's work to be done on a proposal, I'll gladly do my bit, but I'll be quite tied up with a rather large show of my own until late next week (Ugh... stressssss)

    I was just speaking with the arts officer in Airfield and she said the situation is a bit different this year. They want to promote and give priority to exhibitions and events relating to the programs and activities which they run. This means there will be less chances for "outside groups" to run exhibitions but she did say we can still apply. A formal application needs to be made and they will then consider us. They would have space from September onwards.

    That sounds positive, we could offer to do a few presentations as part of their program and run these in conjunction with the exhibition. A presentation on film photography, showing the public how to present their photographs. A darkroom workshop. Run the exhibition as part of a an overall photography weekend.
