Complete exhibition package
We get some great compliments! And one that we’ve heard a lot recently is that we put on great exhibitions. In fact, we supply the entire package to ensure that an exhibition is a great success. A lot of this is due to the brilliant artwork of course but the fact that we are designers, marketers and – to some extent – teckies, helps a lot.
Of course, the artwork is presented to the highest possible quality. The giclees are printed on top museum-quality aqueous paper with a longevity of one hundred years. Our framing is fabulous too and the glass is UV resistant. But it’s those little touches …
- Wherever possible, Andy is present at your exhibition. People love to talk to the artist. The story of why and how he captures his images is fascinating and people always want to talk to him and learn more
- We send our press releases prior to every exhibition along with follow-ups to keep the media flow going
- When we are at your exhibition, we send images directly to Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Google+. We promote your exhibition even when we aren’t on your premises – daily
- Your collection can also be available online on our own website and we can provide the tools for it to be added to your own site too – or assist your webmaster if required. We will also ‘tag-team’ with your social media people to maximize publicity
- We produce beautifully-designed books to accompany your exhibition. Normally these are a) a paperback souvenir catalog and a top-quality, hardback, full color ‘coffee table’ book of your collection. Some people prefer to buy artwork in book form.
- We supply illustrated, full-color price lists which include not the prices of the printed framed and unframed, exact print and frame sizes, a QR code for later online sales and of course, your company branding
- Speaking of QR codes, we supply an information card to be on the wall alongside every print with full details and a QR code which leads the viewer to a web page about that print.
- Our business cards are a mini portfolio in that each has a different example of our artwork on the back
- We like to also arrange an opening event with food, wine and a fruit punch. We also arrange for flowers to be on the table which color-coordinates with the overall theme of the exhibition – we like attention to detail
- We supply a large artist’s statement to hang on your walls which is a good selling tool when Andy isn’t available. We supply crib sheets for your staff so that they can speak knowledgeably about Andy and his work. This includes ‘frequently asked questions’ such as ‘do you use Photoshop to enhance your work?’ (The answer is a resounding no!)
- Another detail that we like to keep throughout the exhibition is a bowl of fruit. This is attractive, slightly quirky, suggests ‘freshness’ and of course, gives exhibition viewers something to nibble if they wish!
- We supply our top quality guestbook which has your branding on the cover
- We suggest that you hold a book signing event to make the most of this
- Something very special is our interactive display. This is a scrolling series of Andy’s images on a flat screen TV. It can be controlled by an iPhone and is a perfect tool when Andy is giving a talk. It also plays various play-lists and the music can be tailored to whatever you wish. Forget Powerpoints!
- Andy will be available whenever possible to hold workshops and talks. As iPhoneography is exploding in popularity, this can be a great event to promote your exhibition and your business
- In my ‘exhibition kit’ I have an expensive air freshening spray. If anyone visits your exhibition eating a hot dog (shame on him) and there is a lingering smell of onions, I can soon get rid of it. Attention to detail …
- I even give the exhibition the once-over with a Feng Shui app – hey, every little helps!
Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for your exhibition to be a huge success and reading through the bullet points above, I’m not surprised that we get compliments on our complete package
Although I don’t usually make book recommendations – I hate websites that have Amazon affiliate links everywhere you look – but if you’re an exhibiting artist, I really recommend this book by Jack White.
