I collected the screen prints from Scott McIntyre - a framer here in Haddington. I am so pleased with the results. There is something about framing - like icing on a cake or expensive buttons on a suit. That 'finish'.
It always strikes me how convoluted the whole process of exhibiting is. Nothing is straight forward and there are so many niggly things to remember. Like signing the work and getting labels made up. Giving consideration to hanging - what is required and how taut can I make that string. Then there is the list of works to think about. And prices. I hate thinking about prices but this has to be done. Finally, an artist statement to cement the work and say what is appropriate - very, very tricky.
So, the constant flitting about collecting all sorts of likely necessary equipment has commenced for the first instal tomorrow.
Red dots - hope springs eternal
Screwdrivers and screws for last minute panic with hanging
A visitor's book
Price labels ...
Hopefully all will go smoothly and things will for once slot into place in a natural and perfect manner. Ha!
