Me and my parents talked earlier this spring that I would exhibit my pictures in Bakstugan in Tiveden this summer. At first I felt like it was so far away in time and plenty of time to plan, then I got sick in covid-19 (pretty sure it was anyway) and then time has just passed. This week it occurred to me that Bakstugan usually open this time of year, but would they open as usual given the covid-19? It hasn't been talked about for a while, we've mostly talked about everyday things and how the pandemic affects us.
Bakstugan opens its doors for the season until next weekend and starts by having open weekends to begin with until the high season starts. I'm going to exhibit there! So now it will be to look through my old prints from Hasselfors and possibly find something new as well. It's going to be so much fun!
Dad has fixed adhesive strips to the floor so that visitors can keep their distance from each other and if it is nice weather there is plenty of room outside where you can sit and have coffee in the sun.
The tips I got from mom when I talked to her – and which I think is good to think about before most shows are:
- It can fit about 10 pcs 60 cm wide paintings
- The paintings are hung by wire from the ceiling
- Number each board
- Give each board a name
- Make a list of the pictures and write what they cost
- Make a presentation of the exhibition on A4 paper
