Framing Your Artwork and Tips on Exhibiting
October 20 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT$140.00
Nancy J. Ori, a professional photographer, teacher and fine art exhibitor for over 35 years, has a great deal of experience in curating and jurying exhibitions, as well as preparing photographs and other artwork for display in the home or a serious exhibition. This workshop will help artists think more clearly about how to edit their work in order to create a professional and cohesive presentation with individual style. We will discuss and demonstrate what kind of frame would work best in what type of situation and with what type of art; various framing techniques, materials and options; and how to best transport, catalog and store the framed work. This workshop is for artists working in any medium and at any level.
A big emphasis will be placed on how galleries and museums will judge your presentation as well as what to choose for a juried show. Some time will be spent on the other materials needed for getting and preparing for a gallery exhibition including how to do some promotion, pricing your work and things you will need to write up. There will be lots of time for questions and discussions. The group will be small and the content and demos will be tailored to the needs of the attendees.
Of great importance is the selection and purchase of all the necessary quality framing materials and tools to complete your project and the demonstration of how to use them. You will then try your hand at measuring and cutting professional looking window mattes as well as cutting glass. We will look at framing with metal frames as well as recommendations for various types of art pieces into different types of wood frames, showing different methods of handling the different materials and why you would choose one over the other. We will compare some of the products that are currently available to see which might be best for your work and price. Worth the price of admission is a list of quality vendors to find all the things you need for the process.
Students should bring a representative sampling of their actual work if it is small enough to travel easily so we can see how you are currently framing things. If this is not possible, photos of your work or a laptop with images to share would be fine. Enrollment will be limited. Directions to our location will be given upon receipt of your registration fee. Bring a lunch or snacks. Coffee, tea and bottled water will be provided. There will be a half hour break for lunch about halfway through but there is no time to go out with such a full agenda.
Tuition Fee: $140.
