I thought it was just me and the iPad wouldn't open them, but obviously your having problems as well.

You should be able to see Robert's post and images now.
The forum doesn't display a user's first post in case it is spam. I have to go in and approve it - which I've now done. I assume that is why the images didn't appear on the email - just in case they were something untoward.

"I like your layout" - perhaps a touch enigmatic? I was referring to Robert's new display.

Some other observations from a visit to Slice a couple of days ago: Amanda and Trevor seem to have anonymous displays. Amanda's interesting new guitar images all have an elegant signature, but it did take me a while to decipher the name, and no name appears on the accompanying descriptive text. As for Trev's display it looks to me as if a card withe some text and no doubt your name has fallen off the wall.

And just to reiterate what Robert said - there is space at the far end of the wall next to his display for up to four more exhibits. A shame to leave this space empty. Hopefully one or more of our newer members might like to take up the challenge. Please let us know. Otherwise, as a temporary measure someone with images already on display could step in and use the space? Any thoughts on that?

Ha ha !!

Must have been thinking that I was so famous that people would instantly know who I was !!

I will redo the blurb with my name at the bottom

Thanks Phil x

I have a feeling that it was thought best to leave a gap at the end as the office door opens on to the wall. Robert may not have used all his 6ft so there might be a small space left which is 'safe' to use.

Hi yes I'm aware of the lack of information and I will be rectifying that. I will also be changing the images before my operation so it will be done asap.

A Slice update.

Have been in today to change three of my display images and learned that Laggi is off back to his native Cyprus tomorrow for 10 days - he will be back on 11 August. He asked if we could not make changes to our displays during this period.

He also told me his latest thinking on the cabinet question. He is still looking for one but it will now be located nearer the window than he had previously suggested - where there is a pink painted box structure at the moment, and it will be no taller than that box (about waist height), so hurray it should not intrude on our display area at all.

I asked for contact details of Steven Harper whose four photos have appeared recently at the far end of the main wall - next to Robert's display - and he said he would give me them on his return.

A couple of new ideas regarding the Slice have been floated and discussed by the committee. A report is in preparation and will be sent to members shortly.

Re: Vacancy - The Slice Gallery Display Coordinator

Post by PhilBrew » Fri Jan 17, 2020 11:28 am

As many of you will know, as from the end of March 2020 I am not expecting to be around very much, if at all, and will therefore not be able to continue in my current role of Slice Gallery Display Coordinator. So, CCS is on the hunt for someone to replace me in that role - or maybe two people as the job can easily be split into responsibility for the Individual Displays and for the Group Display. Could this be you? Here is a job description, but if you might be interested please get in touch and we can talk it all through - without commitment!

Slice Display Coordinator
Job Description

• Liaise with owner Lagi –
◦ text him on 07784 504 597
◦ remember he’s not there Thursdays
• keep record of displays and dates to ensure regular turnover
• make newbies aware of availability of space
• make room for new members to have display space
• keep updated the Guidance Notes for displays
◦ (on CCS website > Forum > Board Index > Guidance Notes for the Slice)
• keep a regular check on the display in case of problems
• manage the Group Display – could be done as a separate job
◦ change every 4 months
◦ decide next theme and inform members well in advance
◦ set deadline for offerings – send reminders
◦ decide selection of ten images, ideally from 10 members
◦ make prints – A4 landscape mode – note photographer’s name on back
◦ prepare new display, using spare set of mounts and decide layout
◦ make labels of names of photographers and the new theme
◦ forewarn Lagi – not Thursdays, not meal times, remember Slice closes at 4
◦ take mounted prints to Slice and remove old and insert new into the existing frames
◦ return old prints to photographers at future meetings
◦ note that printing and all other costs are met by CCS

Phil - January 2020
