Okay, now that I've been accepted to my first art show, I've got a question about packaging. For those of you who have done this before, can you give me any tips on how you get your paintings to and from the shows in one piece? It was a lot easier when I was just doing photos,
I didn't have to worry about dust falling off of them - just breaking the glass and scratching the frames... We transport everything in our minivan. My hubby and I, the two service dogs, my wheelchair, the tent, the walls and of course the photos/paintings. So space is at a premium. But I obviously need everything to get there in pristine condition.
Our thought was to take boxes and make supports for each of end of the frame out of foam insulation (my hubby's idea). That way each frame would be separated from the rest by cushioning. I'm trying to use one frame for everything for consistencies sake, but in the meantime, I've got lots of frames which I used for the photography that I need to use up first. So far, that is the best idea we've been able to come up with and that is going to take up LOTS of room.
Anyone have any better thoughts/ideas/experiences??
