How many artists do you know? They may be painters, sculptors, photographers or any other type of artist. If you are an art gallery owner and have been wondering how to prep your space for a group of different artists in a variety of mediums then this article is just for you! In this blog post we will cover 5 steps that will help prepare your gallery space for a group of artists.
First is to create a schedule with the dates and times that each artist would like to display their work on the wall. This step is important as it helps ensure that no two pieces overlap, creating confusion among visitors.
Next up is allocating room within the gallery itself so each artist has enough room to display their work. It is also important to have space for the visitors so they can move around freely while viewing each piece of art without being too crowded, which would make it difficult to really appreciate what you are seeing.
Additionally, if there are other pieces in your gallery that normally get more attention than others by default then consider rotating these pieces to a different part of the space, or even out of sight completely so that each artist has an equal opportunity for their work to be seen and appreciated by those passing through.
In order to make sure every artist gets as much exposure as possible you should also consider rotating your artists from time-to-time. This way no one gets too comfortable with being the only one in their designated space.
This also allows your visitors to see a variety of work each time they come by so that you are not creating an artist who is “the main attraction”.
Lastly, if there’s room consider using smaller pieces on tables throughout the gallery instead of just on the walls, this will allow visitors to see more of what is available at a glance.
There are always different ways to make room for artists in an art gallery and these tips can help you prepare your space quickly!
You’re now ready to welcome some new artists into your space with ease!
