Proposal for Exhibition 2011 EXHIBITION SPONSORSHIP: Although the exhibitor is not expected to pay an Exhibition Fee they are encouraged to seek grant funding, or seek support from their own sponsors and patrons, and include this funding information as they consider an exhibition proposal. A sponsorship may also be paid by the solo artist exhibitor, paid in shares by the group of exhibitors, paid by the proposed exhibition organizers and/or sponsors. These alternative means of artist initiated sponsorship are always welcome, and could greatly help the Friends of Haydon Board volunteer efforts. We acknowledge that each exhibition represents the cost in actual cash plus extensive volunteer hours by Friends of Haydon Board and members. Therefore the Friends of Haydon has an ongoing, vigorous campaign to secure corporate or private sponsorships or project grants for each exhibition in the schedule.
