Paint Box Guild of Littleton

HANGING EXPECTATIONS

  1. You must submit a “Paint Box Guild Exhibit Submission Form” when you bring your artwork to hang. Blank forms are available on the paintboxguildlittleton.org website. If your printer is not working or you do not have a printer, Staples, Office Max or Kinkos can accommodate making copies for a nominal cost.

  2. PBG Exhibition Card(s) provided by Exhibit Committee at 1st Wednesday Business meetings must be included with your submission. A personalized business card or PBG card is to be permanently attached to the back of your artwork. A PBG card must be securely attached to the bottom right hand corner hanging down from artwork. Use firm tape (i.e. AVOID Scotch tape and Masking tape as they tend to rip easily and the card can drop off.) No tape should be showing and the label should be level with the bottom of the frame. All cards should be printed legibly in BLACK INK for continuity of the exhibit. Please obtain the cards you need and fill them out prior to bringing your artwork for hanging. It is very disruptive trying to locate cards, exhibit forms, pens, and tape for members while trying to check in paintings and get them hung. If you are bringing in paintings for someone else, please make sure you collect their forms and that cards are properly attached.


    Pay attention to emails provided before an exhibit. The email may contain instructions unique to a particular venue such as no pricing information to be displayed, no personal information to be included, or the venue will provide their own cards and the PBG card is not required.

  3. Appearance - Frames must be clean, without chips, dings or scratches and glass needs to be fingerprint and chip free. Poor condition only detracts from the art you worked so hard to produce and reflects poorly on the quality of the entire show. There are touch up pens available that will match most wood tones as well as black, silver, and gold. These will bring new life to that thrift store gem. Evaluate what you are selling. If you would not pay $25 dollars or more for the frame you are using, neither will anyone else.

  4. Wiring - Slack and loose wires cause paintings to hang crooked or fall away from the wall. We still have an issue with wires breaking or coming loose. Wire ends should be tightly wrapped and taped to avoid wall damage. Use D-rings, no eye hooks or sawtooth hangers are allowed because they can damage a wall or come loose from the frame. Try hanging your artwork at home before you bring it in and see if it hangs straight.


    There are a number of framing how-to videos available on the internet and on youtube. Please Google them.
