Displaying Daily Paintings at an Art Show
I thought some of the daily painters might like to see a bunch of daily paintings all hung together. I was a guest artist at an art show Saturday evening. Here is a photo of the remaining unsold miniature paintings. I thought they all looked pretty cool hanging together. We hung them by cutting some black plastic into 48"x3" strips and making a hook for one end of each piece of plastic. We then cut narrow pieces of black velcro (fuzzy side) and ran it down the center of each strip of plastic. All we had to do then was cut little pieces of velcro (hooks side) to attach at the top and bottom of each painting and then just stick the paintings to the strip of pastic. The rows of paintings were then hung by the hook from my display panels. We also had some different frames available to show people what the paintings would look like framed. It was easy to just pull one off and put it in the frame and then put it right back. A few of the miniatures sold along with two larger pieces and I also made some good business contacts for commission paintings in the future so the evening was successful. If anybody is interested in seeing or purchasing any remaining miniatures they can be found by going through the archieve section of my blog. If anyone wants a quick little drawing of the hanging strips let me know and I can email a drawing of how they go together.
