| p.1 #1 · 1st Exhibit Invite ... |
I just got an invite to exhibit @ a local "mini-gallery" that is sponsored by a long-standing frame shop. There is enough space for 30 - 40 pieces (maybe 50+) depending on size / arrangement. This will be my first exhibit.
Part of my dialogue with the owner was that I'd probably present 80% (or so) as a mixture of unmatted or matted only ... with only a few completely framed for illustration of the power good framing adds to the image. This would in part serve to keep my costs down for framing, and in part to generate more matting/framing work for him.
No commission, no fee ... all print sales are 100% mine. He gets his on the increase in traffic exposure from my work @ the exhibit and the new framing orders to finish my pieces.
Any thoughts/input @ method/source for displaying (on drywall) unframed pieces (matted or unmatted)? That and recommendations @ matting/bagging sources to augment display pieces at various sizes/multiples?
