Transporting art

Post by indiehorse » Wed May 08, 2013 9:21 am

Hi Anorak, I dunno if this is something anyone can advise me on.

Next month I am hoping to display the artwork I've done for the Odd Box Crackle!Fuzz!Pop! singles club at the all dayer at Power Lunches.

There will be six paintings by then (there are currently four and a half). The largest two are about 80cm x 100cm, the rest are varying smaller sizes.

How do I do this?

See ideally, I'd like to carry them down on the train or coach with me, but a carry case that size is pricey.

Hmm, maybe I'll just take the smaller ones.

I'm sure I replied to this earlier... do you have a big portfolio?

I've got a large one and as long as you don't get it all mucky, you can have a go on it, that's if it will take your handiwork

how big is your biggest piece?

in inches?

(I don't know why the rest of your sat there smirking)

About 40 inches by 32 inches. Bigger than A1, smaller than A0.

If yours is big enough for that I'd be very grateful to borrow it.

I'll get the tape measure out when I get in

it's a fair old size, possible slightly bigger than A1

That's certainly an option. I think it's probably cheaper than I think it is.

Something I need to consider is what on earth I want to do with them after the show. I might want to take/send them back to Nottingham or I might want to try to sell them/give them away.

Hmmmm.

If you are selling them - I'd certainly want to buy one (some) of them from you.

inevitably mine isn't as big as I claimed

couriering might save you having to carry on and off public transport

unless that is one of the bands on the bill just happens to be travelling by van, a van big enough to accomodate your artwork, a van that happens to be passing the indiehorse ranch

does such a band with such a van on such a route exist?

I think I've come up with a solution for this.

I am constructing some kind of carry-case out of an old duvet.

D.I.Y, motherfuckas.
