This year I am participating in the Pikes Peak Studio Tour for the first time. It is exciting be exhibiting with 4 outstanding jewelry artists. The studio show tour itself includes 22 artists in 12 studios located throughout Colorado Springs, CO. I will be in Studio #1 located on the south side of the city.
Preparing for an art show of any kind, in any venue requires some organization. Check lists are necessary, at least for me. Since I will be packing and transporting my art to another studio, the studio show lists are even more important. Here you can see the beginnings of my packing.
Below is the general check list I am using for my larger items.
Oops! Forgot to put wine on the list. The purple bag you see in the black chair holds some wine for our VIP night.
Below I continue to stack and pack. My “Whimsical Abstracts,” will be shown in public for the first time during this studio tour.
Getting ready to hang a studio show, requires a lot of stuff, i.e., lots of seemingly small items that are necessary when you need them. When in my own studio, it is easy to go a get what I need but no so in another artist’s studio. When I began collecting all of these items, it started to get a tad overwhelming. What was I going to put all of them in?
It was one of those middle of the night Ah-Ha’s that I came up with the idea of using on old paint tool box. Confession: it did take a few minutes to find it. It is going to work really well.
What did I forget? I know there is something. What would you add?
By the way, I include chocolate on my list because I want access to good dark chocolate when I need a little perk during a 10am-5pm day, not the usual milk chocolate. LOL!
You are welcome to share these lists for your next studio show.
