My preparation work is finally complete!
Singularity opens at Brazen Shop+ Studio for January's First Friday.
What a great way to begin a year!
I experimented with this touring format once before.
I invested in 24 11x14 wood frames. Took me a year to save up for them. Each frame has it's own box. I numbered the box and the frame making it very easy to identify the art from a collection.
The original frames had a white matt, I needed black. Not a problem. "Golden State Art" whom I purchased my frames from made sure that I got what I needed.
When I realized that I was missing a matt for this upcoming opening, they were the first folks I called. I had new matts in two days, shipping was free. and this was around Christmas time.
Below is the signature collage image for the collection.
Would you agree, the black matt and frame just makes it pop!
I upgraded the type of tape I used for mounting art. Thank you Dakota Art Supply. I had issue with pieces falling off the matt mid show in prior hangings. this new tape is awesome. I am clear there will be no slippage.
I also redesigned the tag system.
prior I laminated tags and hung them individually with that gummy ticky tack stuff. lot of effort. tags got lost. i typed the wrong things on tags. and i felt bad that i had used something plastic.
my new tags use very inexpensive utility tags. cost me .54 for 24 of them.
utilizing a friends old Remington, I typed my concept for each piece on a tag
I then hung them with back pear shaped pins from the saw tooth on the back.
the concept looks uniform.
I love how the idea turned out! I hope you do too.
A VERY special shout out goes to two friends: sara and gary, who spent time with each collage and gave me three words in reaction. I then added my own three words for a collaborative commentary. I began developing this exhibit months ago.
