Setting up the Kawartha Arts Festival

Today I went to Fenelon Falls, Ontario to set up my exhibit for the 30th Annual Kawartha Arts Festival.

I arrived shortly after the 8:00 a.m. opening and after finding my space I started moving in the foundation of the display.

Once the table, table cloth and the grids were in place I brought in the boxes containing my paintings.

It was now, that the time consuming part was about to begin, hanging the paintings.

I started by putting the larger paintings on the centre two grids and then filled in the area around them with smaller pieces.

I had already decided that I would put the abstract paintings on the outer side of the display panels so I put them up next.

This was followed by putting paintings on the two inner panels.

From there I moved to the wall behind where my chair would be and I hung my display panel for the miniature paintings.

I also had room to hang a couple of smaller pieces on the wall as well.

Once I put the miniatures into the display panel, it was time to place a couple of pieces onto the small easels on the table.

Next, I cleaned off any fingerprints from the glass on the paintings.

Lastly, I put out the biographies, my shrink wrapped originals  into the rack and set out the two binders of unframed ACEO.

I set up my chair, put away all the extra paintings under the table and put everything else into the car.

Now I am going to head home and set out my art supplies and he drawing and paintings that I will work on over the next two days.

If you have a chance, please come out and enjoy the show.

The hours for the show are Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
