Yesterday, the transport box I had ordered in Auckland, was delivered to me. I will use it to provide the gallery in Dunedin who had approached me on October 20. Their website shows very attractive art. Three of my paintings will be exhibited.
After framing them they looked perfect, though that was not what I intended by this framing. Firstly, I framed them as extra protection against the carelessness of the average gallery owner … remembering the scratches left by gallery Fisher.
The box is really true craftsmanship. It can resist a trip to the moon and is still very lightweight. For my own peace of mind I created a sticker for on the bars of the back. I know, it looks exaggerated, but art-wise I have seen every stupidity beyond your anticipation! The most remarkable damage I got on a returned painting was … a bird dropping.
Anyway … the gallery had an add in ‘The Otago Daily Times’. The third image is mine.
