Exhibiting your work in the Jones Gallery

Dear BC Art Students,
Congratulations on having your work chosen for the 2010 BC Student Art Exhibition. You’ve done the fun part in making the work, now comes the finessing to make sure your art is seen at it’s best. Think of it as preparing for a job interview with someone you have a crush on. You want the work to look well put together -sophisticated and professional. So, here are some tips:
Three-Dimensional work:
Think about the height at which the piece is seen at its best and which side of the work you want to face the viewer. You will need to convey that information to the gallery director – write it down and include it with the piece.
If your 3-d work is meant to hang on the wall then you need to make sure it has a sturdy hanger on the back.

Two-Dimensional work:
Your work must be framed. The only exception is painting that has a “gallery wrap”. If you don’t know what that is ask your instructor.
If your work is on paper then it is framed and under glass (or plexiglas).
They can be rather expensive so look around your house to see if you already have one you can use or check garage sales.
Then make sure the frame is painted black or wood tone or silver metal – nice and neutral.
Matting or Mounting:
Aside from making a your presentation professional looking the reason drawings and paintings on paper are matted and framed is to keep the glass from touching the artwork. So, you may want to get a matt for you work before choosing a frame. Aarron Brothers has a good selection of standard sized matts.

Whether mounting or matting your work before framing choose neutral colors (black, white, gray) for the board. You want people to see the work, not be distracted by your cool orange matt.

Hanging hardware:
All work that is to be hanged must have a wire attached to the back. You can buy D-rings and wire at Lowe’s or Home Depot in the hardware area. (Please see the photos) Hanging hardware is not terribly expensive.

Want some help?

If you lack the tools to attach the hardware to the back or just want someone to make sure you are doing it right bring your art piece and the hardware to FA 20 Friday, March 19 between 9 and 11 am. and faculty will help you with it.

Going it alone:
If you want to attach the hardware to the piece on your own then pay attention to the following:
Attach the D-rings to the side frames 1/3 of the way down from the top – BE PRECISE!!! an 1/8th of an inch difference is HUGE when you are trying to make sure the piece hangs level.

Okay, I think that’s it. If you have any questions please leave them in the comments area and I will answer within 24 hours
