Here are some general guidelines for setting up a new Art Show. 

When starting out, it helps to think of an Art Show as going through the following four stages.:

  1. Planning - Working out where, when and how the Art Show is to take place.
  2. Onboard – Getting the word out to Artists, Customers and Curating the Artworks.
  3. Showtime – Receive Artworks, Hanging the Artworks, Hosting the Event, and Selling to Customers.
  4. Wrap Up – Dismantling the Show. Issuing Sold works to Customers, Returning unsold works to Artists, Paying the Artists and having a Wrap Up Meeting / Party for Volunteers.
