This is a checklist things you need to think about when putting on your own art show. If you take the time to prepare up front your show will come across as slick, well organized and professional, which in turn gives potential buyers of your art confidence.
Getting your artwork ready for the showPhotograph your art work. Once it gets purchased then you might never see it again!
Frame your artwork if required. Allow plenty of time for your picture framer to do a quality job.
Make sure all your artworks are suitable for hanging or display with strings and D-rings attached.
Wrap your artworks up ready for transportation. Buy bubble wrap in bulk lots from a packaging wholesaler or supplier. Don’t buy small rolls from your office supplier. or you will pay too much.
Blankets are a cheap alternative but not as neat.
Arrange a truck, hatchback or station wagon to transport your works.
Certificates of Authenticity. Make one for each artwork. Have a special rubber stamp made up to use with the certificate. It looks great and buyers love them.
