PAINTING SALES FOR

PAINT BOX GUILD MEMBERS

Paint Box Guild members who sell paintings at PBG exhibitions handle their own direct sales. When a buyer wants to purchase one (or more) of our paintings at an exhibition, we receive the buyer's name and phone number either from the facility exhibiting our art or, sometimes, a buyer will call us directly from our contact information on our PBG card displayed on the bottom lower right of our painting. We should then contact the individual, set up a time and place to meet with them which should be on or after the exhibition closes. Sometimes the buyer wants the painting NOW due to their circumstances. If so, we should check with the member that curated the show.  It would be helpful to have a painting on hand to replace the empty space if needed. After the sale and the artist has been paid, the artist is responsible for paying the commission to the facility. If the commission is due to PaintBox Guild, please make out the check to same and give it to our treasurer. If the artist is unsure who receives the commission, check with our curator who will know.

 

Buyers generally like to meet and visit with the artist who created the piece. They sometimes want background information on the concept or location of your painting. A positive meeting can sometimes create a collector of your work.

Good luck with your sales!

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 (NOT DANGLING! from ribbon or tape extensions).  Use firm tape (i.e. AVOID Scotch, Artist 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.  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.
