I’ve been getting all of the artwork packed up for delivery to Burnt Bridge Cellars for a one-person art exhibit there. Some of my artwork is also coming from one of my nearby galleries. So what you see in the photo is just what art is coming from my studio. And the artwork in the photo is in stages of being gathered and wrapped in prep for putting it in the car for delivery.
4 things I’ve learned about delivering artwork by car to a nearby destination:
- Place artwork in the car face to face with a piece of brown paper or bubble-wrap between the artworks. Ideally each artwork will be wrapped in either the packing paper or the bubble wrap.
- Clean towels or blankets are good art wrapping in a pinch. They are also good for making sure the artwork is well padded/protected (particularly at the corners or edges) during transport.
- Nest the artworks together in the car with the largest on bottom/back, descending in size to the smallest on top/front. Wrap/pad with towels and blankets in case of load shift while driving.
- Drive slowly and carefully – particularly on turns. Let other people pass you. Smile.
