How to Set Up an Art Exhibition

Whether you're exhibiting your own artwork or someone else's, setting up an art exhibition can be a creative, fulfilling endeavor in and of itself. However, it does have its challenges and you'll need good planning to pull it off.

 An art exhibition

Steps

1. Choose a theme. The theme is what will tie all of the artwork together and determine the title of the exhibition.

2. Select a date. Give yourself plenty of time to pull everything together or else you might end up with a sloppy job and poor sales. It is always best to hold an art exhibition so that it includes a weekend. This will allow those working during weekdays to attend and often families will make an outing of the event.

3. Find artists with work to exhibit. Browse at local art clubs, street markets where you see artists with good work on sale, and ask anyone you know who is an artist in your community. If you have chosen a narrow theme, they might bring along existing artwork or they may have to paint or create new artworks. It is best to ask them first what they will have the time for and interest in doing. Consider more than just paintings - sculptures, models, artistic photos and glassworks are just some other possible ideas that can be blended well with painted artwork or stand alone.

4. Determine the location of your exhibition. You can rent a large hall, but many different kinds of spaces will do (such as a library or even someone's home, for example). Ensure that the space chosen is well-presented, clean and modern. Laminated flooring and white or pale walls with no pattern will look the best.

Consider how many art pieces will be needed to fill the space and compare that with your estimate of what you will be exhibiting. Pay particular attention to available lighting. Large windows can be good, and track lighting can be especially useful in illuminating the work.

5. Frame the artwork (if applicable). People are more likely to buy artwork that has been carefully and tastefully framed, rather than just simply mounted. But, framing requires a deeper investment on your part - one that you need to be confident will pay off.

6. Set your prices. Consider all of your costs, including the fee for renting the space, the framing, advertising, the artist's share, your share, and any percentage donated to charity. Decide whether an admission fee will be necessary or appropriate.

7. Advertise the art exhibition. Make invitations and posters displaying the same theme as the paintings, sculptures and other artwork. Include the exhibition title, location, date, time, and admission fee. Put a poster up on supermarket bulletin boards. Get in touch with local newspapers and tell them about the upcoming exhibition. Advertise at local art schools and universities.
