- Wright Opera House report: Bobbie sent electronic report: Bobbie will help Teresa take down her show at the Wright on the 6th or 7th, then will help hang Larry Meckel’s show on the 8th. He will be out of town so there will be no opening reception. Instead he will have a closing reception in November. The Wright will be closed November 13-30, so Natalie and Nobel’s show will start the first of December and run to Jan 9. Carol and Larry Brecker contacted Bobbie and Kate about a showing next June. Larry would exhibit his photos of flowers and. Carol would do demos of her ikebana. Bobbie told her she thought that was a great idea but that we do not have a schedule set up for 2022 as yet. Bobbie needs to meet with Kate and Alyssa sometime in the next couple of months to figure out that schedule. Bobbie finally received a bill from Dee James for the 6 posters that she made for this summer’s shows at the Wright ($90). Bobbie forwarded that bill to Becky.
