So many things to do this week as the day to hang the exhibition approaches.

Now let me see…. hmmm…. Let’s make a list of all the things I have to do for a solo exhibition….. this is the comprehensive list – unlike last weeks post, which didn’t list everything!

  • Find a gallery to show your work!
  • Finish all the paintings
  • Finish shrink wrapping the last print that got left out – somehow
  • Get Prints, cards and flyers printed
  • Get mats for the prints and then mat them
  • Shrink wrap all the prints
  • Make a poster
  • Figure out pricing for cards
  • Make and print authenticity certificates for all the works
  • Do a press release
  • Contact Imag – get in Nov-Dec issue
  • Get holders for the prints and cards
  • Get a guest book for comments
  • Get John to put brackets on back of triptych for me so it stays together
  • Deliver flyers and posters
  • Type up the Card and print price list
  • Send out all the invites
  • Ring some people to invite them
  • Social media posts…. FB, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest
  • Finish adding show to media outlets ie tourism NSW
  • Finish the last two painting artist statements for the wall ( not done)
  • Contact Meredith Gilmore at Coast Art radio
  • Create email campaign reminding people of the exhibition opening
  • Put cords and brown tape on the back of each painting
  • Paint around the edges of each work
  • Pack all the works for transporting
  • Organize someone to open the exhibition
  • Organize someone to take photos at the opening (not done)
  • Get drinks etc for the opening

As you can see there are many things that go into organizing a solo exhibition. – If you are a beginning artist – this list might help you with some of the things you may have forgotten to do.  I must say however that they aren’t in chronological order. Also not all of them will apply to everyone, like putting brackets on the backs of the triptych. 

And as a reminder, here are all the exhibition details again.
