Hello!

It was great to see everyone at our April 18 meeting. We accomplished much and hope you are ready for a rewarding tour!

As promised, we are providing additional details on several key items. Take a few minutes to read this information, which has been developed to enhance your THAT experience. If you cannot read this now, we have posted a copy of this email on our website.

1. FRIDAY MAY 4 KICKOFF CELEBRATION AT HUNTERDON ART MUSEUM, 7 PM to 9 PM

The kickoff is an exuberant occasion celebrating THAT. Everyone gets to meet the artists and plan their tour. The event is free and open to the public! Food will be served and there will be wine by the glass at $5 per.

Please share the Eventbrite link with friends, family and followers:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-2nd-annual-hunterdon-art-tour-kickoff-celebration-tickets-45109030324

Registration via Eventbrite is not mandatory but greatly appreciated, so that we know how many guests to expect.

2. PRESS KIT / INSTAGRAM / FACEBOOK

Wow! We just posted our first-ever official Press Kit on THAT’s website at

PressKit-2018

We are working to build THAT’s brand and a part of that effort is the consistent use of specific visual and verbal elements created for the tour, including (but not limited to) our mission statement, logo and printed materials.

We are distributing the press kit to media outlets across the county and region to generate publicity for the THAT and we encourage you to utilize this information in your promotional efforts.

Please also connect to THAT’s Instagram and Facebook pages and then share and promote them!

3. ARTWORK DROPOFF & PICKUP AT HUNTERDON ART MUSEUM

Your artwork for the exhibition at the Hunterdon Art Museum must be brought during one of these two times for it to be on display (and for sale) during the opening night gala on Friday, May 4:
