Art Show Opening todo list
Preparing for the opening of my current art exhibition this time around has been one hell of a challenge. Past exhibitions occurred during a time in my life that I was either unemployed, or worked a t a job that facilitated me leaving to work on art stuff when I needed to. I was able to dedicate the majority of my time to creating art and preparing for the exhibition opening.
Recently, however, I joined a landscaping crew. We’ve been working 9 and 10 hour days in 100Âº weather, and by the time beer-thirty rolls around, I’m pretty tired. Still, I managed to accomplish most of the things on my todo list, or was able to outsource some of them anyway:
confirm show meet with office manager to select artwork create postcards and fliers – partially outsourced get artwork to printer pick up fliers – outsourced hang fliers – outsourced mail postcards – outsourced notify events calendars send mass email get food and drinks for show – outsourced get artwork and verbiage to newspaper
- pay for newspaper ad – partially complete
- send blast text message – day of show
- patch dust covers on some pieces
- apply dust cover to largest piece
buy craft paper for dust covers
- clean glass on all framed pieces
- price all artwork
- create labels for all artwork
- revise artist statement
- hang show
- nails/ hangers
- tape measure
- red dots
- business cards
I think that’s an exhaustive list. I still have some work to do. Hopefully, I can accomplish most of it this evening before heading out to see the very last International Playboys show.
Tomorrow: taking the day off work to play catch-up and treat myself to a Bikram’s class.
See you all at the opening tomorrow at CTA Architects, Engineers.
