Studio Theme prevents conatct page on Blog

OK at least I now know why it wont work. The Studio theme seems to be set up so JetPack can add an Email contact for the blog on this Blog Page. In the process I discovered that I can add an Email form on other pages so I am adding a news page where you will find an Email contact form.

Testing signin

I have added a tab to enter Email addresses. I have subscribed to this so hopefully this message will appear in may Email.

Blog Subscription

Sadly Sarah has given up the Newsletter as she wishes to devote more time to making pottery. This means that until someone volunteers to produce the Newsletter it will not appear. The main sources of communication will become Facebook, this Web Site and occasional Emails to Members. I am trying to set up the Blog to allow subscriptions and Comments. If I have achieved this a form may follow this Blog -if not I will keep trying.

Plas Glyn Y Weddw

I have added some pictures from the opening of the Plas Glyn Y Weddw exhibition. Please note the date (19th November), time (11.00am) and place (Mostyn Gallery, Llandudno) of the AGM – and attend. Eleni has organised a table at Menai 9th and 10th December – inside in the dry. Bev and Terry’s Christmas Sale is on  25th and 26th November from 10.00am – 3.00pm both days, This is usually an oppotunity to obtain some of their work at modest prices. Next years program is developing well with exhibitions at the Mostyn Gallery and hopefully a return visit to Plas Glyn Y Weddw – See you ALL on Sunday 19th November.

Members Work

 Hi, I have been updating the member’s work pages.  I want to get to a consistent format. To do this I have, as far as possible started, each individual entry with your personal statement. This is in Headings 4 format. It does not start with your name as this is on the page title bar. Ideally I would like these all to be in first person but have left them as submitted. I wish to follow this with your contact details and can embedd links to Web sites and Facebook pages. At the bottom of the page I can add one or more galleries of Images which can be diaplayed in either slideshow or thumb nail formats by the person viewing the page. I can include links to subsiduary pages to include full biographies, CV’s etc. To see how multiple galleries work see Carla Pownall’s entry, and to see how links to further pages work see Wendy Lawrence’s entry.

I am aware that some of your entries are now dated so please send me new information. Also some of the images do not seem to display properly – I will try to adjust these but it may help to have new ones – Jane William’s entry shows this problem.

Finally, several members have still not sent me anything -despite repeated requests. This is a free bit of advertising. It is used by galleries when selecting members work to exhibit. It is also used to judge the bredth and quality of work produced by NWP so we all have a vested interest in keeping it up to date.

Reviews

Sorry to pack the Facebook page with messages. I have added bits from the Mostyn Gallery Web Site about Bev’s exhibition under the reviews page. This is essentially the same information as Pea has already put on the Facebook site. I have done this to encourage you to contribute to this page. I would like to post reviews of exhibitions, books, events etc etc. I would also like to develop this blog page and gradually index it to become an archive. So send me technical tips, glaze details etc etc. Regards Richards

Daily Post interview with Bev

I have posted an interview that the Daily Post conducted with Bev Bell-Hughes. Remember some of Bev’s work is exhibited at the Mostyn Gallery in Llandudno at the moment. Additionally Bev was the subject of an article in Ceramics Review last month.

Plas Glyn y Weddw Exhibition

Applications to show your work in the joint NWP and South Wales Potter’s exhibition have to be in by this Sunday 10th September. Please send six images of your work and a personal statement to mari@oriel.org. Ideally these will be sent on disc as high resolution images suitable for publication to Mari Jones, Plas Glyn y Weddw, Llanbederog, Pwllheli, LL53 7TT. In view of the short time available I suggest that if you have not sent anything so far you also send images of a reduced resolution (1 -2Mbit) by Email.
