Paintings For Delivery!

2 October 2007

For delivery!The moment has come! I’ve put fixtures and rope on the back of all my canvases. I’ve wrapped them up, stacked them up and they are all ready for delivery!

They’ll be taken to the gallery, where Francis, our professional exhibition installer – our saviour – will do all the really hard work of sorting out all the paintings, working out which paintings go where (taking into account the exhibition area, wall space, visual flow, features), THEN he’ll hang each painting, making sure they’re all level and adjust the lighting.

He was adamant that we – the artists – were not allowed to be present during the installation. He was, after all, a professional. And fair enough too. I couldn’t imagine doing that job with 4 artists telling me what to do!
