We have to strip down the walls, stack and save our usual wall display, move the furniture, clear shelves, spring clean, frame up the exhibits, and decide where to hang what.
We have to make labels, price lists, and write emails.
Visitors often ask us what we hang on our walls for the rest of the year.
So here are some shots of the house before the changes take place.
[This is our dresser, as usual stacked with old plates, cups, and bric a brac. This will be cleared and a display of cards and small artwork takes over.]
We have already designed and commissioned frames, postcards, and other literature, which has to be collected and sorted.
Then we have to hang the new exhibition.
On top of that we will be getting the usual steady stream of orders from galleries and the website which we cannot just ignore. At the moment there are four orders for multiple prints that galleries expect to be processed and delivered pronto.
