Today I got to work organising art cards for sale at the show. I have several that have always been good sellers and I'm adding a few new ones including "Tea By the Sea" which was a 5x7 canvas that was sold at the Legacy Gallery last year. The cards are all printed and cut and ready for gluing and putting in cellophane sleeves.
The next project was to construct the main section of my new booth. I am finicky about colour in my booth and I consider a coordinated backdrop to be essential. The drapes provided by the event display company are usually a grim grey and I plan to pump up the colour volume. My booth is an 8x10 corner so I only need to make two "walls". Instead of lugging heavy grids to the show, this time I have decided to go light and simple. Using pvc piping and wooden dowels I'm making a frame from which I'll hang silky drapes. The structure will be supported by 3 market umbrella stands. I have a plan for displaying "hanging wall-art". More next time!
