I thought it would be interesting to capture a time-lapse segment of setting up one of our Photo Arts Group Shows. This takes place each month at the Escondido Arts Partnership Municipal Gallery in our "Inner Space" area of the Gallery. The video and time lapse were shot with a GoPro.
We first take down the prior show, patch the nail holes and then touch up the paint. While we wait for the paint to dry, the Show Coordinator sorts and places each picture where he/she thinks it is best represented within the whole. Then, it's a matter of determining the placement of nails so that each picture is centered relative to one another. Finally they are leveled and a little museum putty is placed under the bottom edge to keep them from tilting. The following Saturday evening come the artist reception where we all get together and share our work while enjoying a variety of treats and beverages.
If you happen to be in Escondido, CA on the 2nd Saturday of the month, please stop by the corner of Juniper and Grand Ave between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. We would enjoy meeting you.
