Isn’t it amazing how fast time flies? It’s already September! During the hot summer, the PS committee has been working very hard to make this year’s PS in shape. There are lots of new things with this year’s PS schedule, and we hope you also feel excited to participate in some of the PS activities to be held in September.
First of all, we will have the PS Kick-off General Meeting on Wednesday, September 27 at Tokyo American Club. As many members know, this is the first time in four years for us to have the PS Kick-off luncheon (General meeting) at TAC. The speaker will be Prof. ENDO Ryuta of Musashino Art University. The speech details will follow from the GM team soon. Please make a reservation for the September GM which will be held hybrid with 80 people in-person.
On the same day, we will have the viewing tour of the CWAJ Special Exhibit to be held at the Fred Harris Gallery at TAC. Earlier in March eNews we informed you that we will have the Associate Show again at TAC from September 19 till October 2 this year, but there have been some changes about its schedule and so on since then.
The name of the exhibition will be CWAJ Special Exhibit at TAC, not Associate Show, and the exhibit title will be Color Blast – Ay-O, IKEDA Masuo, YAYANAGI Go, which features those famous artists’ manipulation of vivid colors. The exhibition period will be for three weeks from September 12 till October 2. Due to TAC’s policy, non-TAC members will be allowed to enter the Fred Harris Gallery only when some registered PS committee members (as a liaison to TAC) accompany them. Therefore CWAJ members and outside people who wish to visit FHG during the Special Exhibit period will have to make a reservation for the designated viewing days.
However, on September 27, all the GM attendees will be able to visit the FHG before the GM starts (from 10: 00) or after the GM (until 15:00 ) without any reservation. If you cannot make it on September 27, please make a reservation by sending a message to PSSE@cwaj.org.
We have planned the following six occasions for viewing the Special Exhibit. Please send an email at least a week before your visit.
1) September 13 (Wed) 13:00 to 16:00
2) September 14 (Thu) 12:00 to 16:00
3) September 16 (Sat) 11:00 to 17:00
4) September 21 (Thu) 12:00 to 18:00
5) September 24 (Sun) 12:00 to 16:00
6) September 25 (Mon) 12:00 to 18:00
The Print Show catalogue and products will be delivered to the center in
early September. As for the products, in addition to wall calendar, pocket diary and greeting cards, we will have some new items like two
kinds of pouches, a mini tote bag and a notebook this year.
All those products will be sold at the September GM as well as via mail order. We decreased the order size due to constraints on the cost, so we suggest you purchase products in early occasions.
