Every artist has a prefered method of showing their work, either to a gallery, or to the public in general. In this issue, I am asking you to share your experiences and opinions on these matters with me so I can share on this blog for everyone.

I have asked you readers for your experiences before, on matters involving presenting your art, and as a result, we have received all kinds of wonderful advice from a large variety of artists. So today, I want to put some questions to you regarding presenting your art work and see if you can send me some of your experiences or advice. I will them publish the responses I get.  You can post here under comments, or you can email me here.  

So one basic question is:

How do you present your work in a portfolio when you are approaching a gallery for the first time?

If you use three dimensional format, and show actual works, do you show actual pieces if they are small, and in what kind of presentation? For larger pieces, do you show photographs?

Do you use a portfolio for paper pieces? Or do you bring framed works and canvas works after the first meeting and interest is shown?

Do you have a go-to frame that you prefer for presenting your work? Please elaborate and share brand and retail mega deals if you know any!

If you use digital format do you bring an IPad? Or have an online website that you get them to see?

Please send me your thoughts, ideas and experiences! I will compile the data all of you send me and share it a soon to follow edition of this blog.

 

Thanks so much for sharing your ideas, knowledge and expertise!
