I’ve been busy preparing for the Artist Studio Tour Prescott coming up in October, and I ran across this ingenious recipe that I wanted to share with you. This is for the artists among you, and all the DIY fans. Wall space is notoriously tight at many shows – and in the case of my upcoming event, it comes with extra assets not conductive to hanging pictures (shelves, clocks, mirrors). The other item being somewhat tight before exhibitions is usually the artist’s budget, as all means are being poured into extra art supplies, frames, marketing, prints, and the like.
So I roamed the internet and found a solution from this creative lady .
With the help of my (far more gifted at anything to do with handiwork) husband I collected 3 light screen doors, 3 outdoor carpets, 4 door hinges and 6 rubber bumpers, and went to work to create Pro Panels to display my canvas art prints!
It took about 3 hours total, and it’s definitely a two-man job. But the result looks quite respectable, what do you think? I hung up several canvas prints and one Xposer print, to test the finished panel, and I was pretty happy.
By the way, do you see the print with the delightful lady and the cactus flower hair-do in the Phoenix desert environment (Cactus Queen2, to the right) ? That’s the brand new 16×20 Xposer print which will be the raffle price at the Artist Studio Tour (October 5-7, Mountain Artist Guild, downstairs). More about that soon – you can also enter the free giveaway online!
