08/04/2005: "the Hanging"
I couldn't hang the show tonight, problems with my frames...here's some advice if you're going to hang something in a space that has the high ceiling hooks...if you don't attach your hanging brackets at the very top of the frame, the top will hang out from the wall. Very frustrating, especially being sick. A fellow Juneau artist, a photographer, stopped in and introduced himself and offered to help me tomorrow...which was very kind of him. Particularly considering how close I am to having a nervous breakdown at the moment.
I used PhotoShop tonight to map out how I want the images displayed...all the landscapes together on the short wall:
and all the figurative works together on the long wall:
I think this layout looks pretty good but I'm operating under a horrid headache that has had me in tears on and off for the past several hours so I could be wrong. I'm open to suggestions at this point.
I will attempt to hang these tomorrow afternoon right before the opening. The problem is they'll only let me hang during business hours, and it's kind of cramped in there and if there are a lot of customers, I'm just not sure how that's going to work out. We'll see...it can't get any worse.
