Checklist for getting ready for a show
Order frames ahead of time and allow time for framing. (My husband does all the framing. I am so lucky. He is a perfectionist and does a beautiful job.)
Franken Frames and King of Frames have been my resources for ordering frames. You can get custom sizes from both. I am very happy with the quality of the frames, the attentive service, delivery and packing. I recommend both.
Here are links to their websites:
If you have any questions about which frames I order just email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
My planning wasn't that great because I had to make three different orders.
I used Moo.com and ordered square business cards that allow a photo on front and back of card plus room for contact info and websites. I've ordered from them before and really like them.
Do some publicity:
A newsletter and facebook are good way to advertise the where and when of a show. I'll send out a newsletter at the beginning of November.
Write Artist Statement/Biography and Inventory
This is always hard to do, but I managed to write one. I listed my inventory for the show using excel spreadsheet. Most galleries require both of these things.
I think I am ready now.
