shipping window for member 12x12 show clarification

As some of you may have noticed, on the pdf guidelines for the member show, it states that Work must be shipped to arrive no earlier than May 13, 2013 and not later than May 17, 2013 in order to be included in the exhibition.

I have contacted the show organizer, asking how such a narrow window could guarantee that anyone sending internationally--and that includes Canada--- could possibly ensure even with tracking and special post, that the package get there not before and not after, risking rejection and a rather pricey tour with no guaranteed end game.

I am glad to report that our entries can be mailed the week before the "beginning date" and as long as they get there before the end date of May 17th, they WILL be accepted and stored until the show is mounted.

IF you have already entered online, you will hopefully have received a missive stating this:

Although the shipping instructions specify that work must arrive at the gallery between May 13 and May 17, we have made special arrangements for you because you are shipping internationally. We know that it’s difficult to predict how long the work might be in transit. The gallery has agreed to accept and store your work if it arrives early.

Allison has also said;
And by the way, given the nature of this show, I’m not prepared to reject a piece that arrives a couple of days late, especially if there’s bad weather.

I just wanted this clarified for those who have read the pdf guidelines and cringed at the thought that their work may not get there on time. Now that we have these facts, please do use the CaFe entry system to log in your pieces, with all the info required, and get set to mail!
