Thanks ABERS... that's certainly a different setup and marvellous to have all the room you want. One of the 'problems' here is that, as a small but very culture-aware city, the 'downtown' area has around five professional galleries and another half-dozen 'available walls' in restaurants etc. so presentation is almost a competitive thing.
Our show is in January this year (and next) for the simple reason that somebody forgot to book our normal April in time! There are so many arty groups that want the room! (And I wouldn't be surprised if a little chicanery had gone on).
We had a search for other venues but the big advantage is that, tucked away in a Library, we don't need to have it attended while it's open. It's also well-lit with gallery-standard lighting, has a little platform/stage and a sound system.
While I agree that mattes should be the member's choice, some of them did come up with some odd colours - and frames. Personally, I quite liked the way the show looked but when we get criticism from somebody I know is a graphic arts teacher there must be something to learn!
