Looking for some low buck solutions for hanging work in an outdoor booth

  • Author Posts 987928 Hello, everyone. First and first, I’d like to state that I am new to the forum and have been researching this issue for some time, but I am truly OVERWHELMED by the quantity of useful material that can be found on this website overall. However, I’m finding myself spinning my wheels at this point as I attempt to go through all of the previous discussions on festival booths and I’m getting nowhere fast. Some of these morphed into personal conversations as well. As a result, I wanted to establish a new topic to address this issue. I’m planning my first outdoor event in June, and I’m a little unsure about how I want to go about it. A white EZ UP tent 10′ x 10′ is on my shopping list for this week, and I should be able to borrow some side panels from an acquaintance, provided they are compatible with my tent’s dimensions. Aside from that, I should be able to weigh down the legs with some 25 or 50 pound weighted bags I have lying around from work. What I’m still undecided about is how I’m going to hang my artwork. In the end, all I’m looking for is something that is both sturdy and inexpensive to set up. Given that this is my first time participating in a festival and that I have no plans to do so again in the future, I would prefer to avoid spending a significant amount of money on displays and other decorations at this time. It has been brought to my attention that the Pro Panels and Graphic Display Systems Mesh panels are excellent options, but I am not prepared to make such a significant expenditure at this time. In all honesty, I have no idea whether or not my artwork will sell, and spending $400 or more on a setup isn’t in my budget right now. I know it may not look the greatest presentation wise, but I will try my best to “dress it up”. Can anybody give me some suggestions on some real low buck, zip tie it up, kind of solutions? I read in a thread someplace about using plastic chicken wire or “hardware net” from Home Depot, but I’m having zero luck finding that in white. I’ve thought about PVC lattice or peg board too. I’m looking for some good ideas to pull this off. I’d like to stick within a $80 – $100 budget tops in that regard. By the time I’ve bought the tent, had giclees and prints made of two of my paintings to compliment the rest of the my work, I’ll probably have spent over $500 on this endevour. The reality is I could end up selling one print for $35 the whole day, and come home with a huge loss. The prints and giclees will be of use to me later, but spending a lot on display panels may not be. Thanks. Jason I’m not sure how the walls work, but could you use picture rail hooks over the top of the walls, and then hang the paintings using fishing wire? (this way you can hang several down of the hook with long pieces of wire. Picture hooks look like this so your hardware or interiors store might call them something else: here’s another page that gives you an idea how they hang: the screw and nylon cord in the first image, that’s part of a gallery hanging system, you can just loop your fishing wire around normally: If you put your string or D-rings near the top of the frame or stretcher the pictures would hang flat against the walls. Tina. I posted a similar question about a month ago. We used the chicken wire that had been suggested at our festival this past weekend, and it worked fine. As I was wandering around looking at other booths, I noticed one person with a nice quality clothesline, strung around the booth at two heights, which also looked like a good solution. Another person used 4 x 8 foot boards, standing vertically, with ledges attached, on which his paintings sat. I didn’t care for the high-end panels in one of the booths since they closed off the room too much and made the booth seem cramped and gloomy. Best, Valerie There are some really good ideas in here. I presently use the curtain hooks in my propanels to hang my work, which is OK for the time being, but I am aware that this may cause damage to the panels with time, so I was considering investing in hooks and line or another hanging method as well. When one of the attendees at a festival showed me his panels after 10 years of use, the middles and insides were barely holding together! I’m baffled as to how they were able to hold the weight of his massive, huge paintings! Neither I nor him know what they exactly are, nor do I know where you are, but perhaps he might provide a picture: Slinky does have an excellent suggestion: purchase secondhand display systems. If they’re scratched or otherwise damaged, spray paint them. My recommendation is to look at other booths, if the outdoor festival isn’t starting yet (if it’s a continuous event), go to a farmer’s market, and see what they use for displays at the various booths there. Those will be inexpensive, but effective, because they will need to demonstrate the items’ effectiveness in order to sell them. Furthermore, if you borrow from a farmer’s market in terms of style, it may enhance your whole image. 14th of May, 2009 at 10:29 p.m. 1118564 I asked a query quite similar to this one about a month ago. We made use of the chicken wire that had been advised at our festival the previous weekend, and it worked just perfectly for our needs. During my exploration of other booths, I came across one that had a decent quality clothesline stretched around the booth at two different heights, which appeared to be a suitable option as well. Another guy utilized 4 × 8 foot boards that were stacked vertically and affixed to ledges, on which his paintings were displayed. I didn’t care for the high-end panels in one of the booths since they closed off the room too much and made the booth seem cramped and gloomy. Hello, Valerie. I’m glad to hear that strategy is effective! Did you attach the zip ties to the bracing on the sides (between the legs at the bottom of the canopy) of the canopy? You said that the walls and chicken wire were flying around in the wind. Did you have any problems with this? What method did you use to hang the paintings on it? Is it only with S hooks? At 10:47 p.m. on May 14, 2009, 1118565 If he could provide me a photo of what he’s talking about, I’d be more than happy. Thank you for the suggestion. Slinky. I looked through all of the CL pages in my area and couldn’t find anything in the art and crafts part for displays, so I looked through the Business listings on the off chance that anything would be there. I found two entries for metal grid wall. I’m going to attempt to get in touch with them tomorrow and see what they want for it. At 11:55 p.m. on May 14, 2009, 1118557 You may also publish an advertisement stating that you are seeking for some. You never know who could be out there wondering whether or not to sell theirs, or who might be in possession of some they want to sell but hasn’t yet set up an ad for it. GL! I found my Craft Hut tent on Craigslist in perfect condition for a great price! When it comes to exhibiting items, I absolutely suggest Craigslist. Despite this, you must persevere and occasionally refrain from being impatient. As I was drifting off to sleep, I had another thought. Chains should be hung. In the yard section of a hardware shop, you may get light-duty ones. Afterwards, attach eye hooks to the backs of the paintings. To fasten the eyehooks, thread them through a link in the chain and secure them with something like a zip tie or twist tie through the eye. This means that you may have as many vertical chains as you need and that you can hang anything wherever along the chain, giving you greater versatility in your layout. We’ve even installed white plastic chain in our garden to match the color of the fabric walls. Tina. When I intended to make a twin tent in the past, I utilized chains to hold it together. I suspended them in two levels from the metal portion of the tent, which was horizontally hung. I hung my already-wired frames with the help of the S hooks. It was fine for a single show. I’m trying to sell my graphic display system, which has eight screens and is in good condition. I currently reside in Philadelphia. I also have two ancient tents and a canopy that I use occasionally. At the age of 70, I have no intention of doing any more gigs. Do you know of a location where I may sell my prints (which number in the hundreds)? KathyWEB: [or send an e-mail] Blog: If you’re going to hang work, use caution. Even the slightest wind will cause it to swing and knock against the individuals in your booth, as well as the walls of your neighbors if you’re close enough. Also, be cautious about the amount of weight you place on an EZup hangwise–they are not meant to support that kind of load since the criss cross roofline is extremely fragile and bendy. There are a variety of reasons why they are referred to as Easy Downs. It’s not that they won’t function
  • In fact, I have one and use it on a regular basis. Unfortunately, performing art fairs without experiencing a significant lot of dissatisfaction necessitates the purchase of high-quality and durable items to transport, which is not inexpensive. There are a few firms that rent out screens and gridwalls that are already assembled and ready to go. I’ve known several professionals who have taken advantage of the services for the sake of convenience. I don’t remember their names, but they shouldn’t be difficult to track down. Howard Whenever possible, Alan Events refers artists to them. They cost between two and three hundred dollars, and all you have to do is show up with your work and drapery hooks. It has been around 12 years since I purchased the hefty steel Graphic Display Systems 36 panels, and they are still in pristine condition. I have used and abused them. It’s difficult to merely dip your toes into the art fair waters. You should actually experiment with a variety of them before making a decision. Any number of factors might negatively impact sales at a trade fair. The weather, the news of the day, and so forth. As a result, completing just one or two is difficult. Wishing you the best of luck! 18th of May, 2009 at 12:48 p.m 1118544 It’s unlikely that you’ll want to go to the bother of constructing walls and other infrastructure for a first-time experiment
  • Instead, check if you can locate another artist on Craigslist who would be willing to let you use their Propanels for the weekend. A pain in the thumb and fingers, curtain hooks for hanging paintings are a hassle — it’s difficult to get them to hang level, it takes time, and they are generally uncomfortable to use. After a year of using them, we switched to putting industrial strong Velcro (available through Home Depot, I believe) on the back of the frames – just stick it on. Remove it off your person. It doesn’t matter if it’s crooked or straight. If you have huge paintings, you might consider using more than four pieces of molding on the corners of the frames. If you choose this method, make sure you attach the Velcro to the frame at least a day ahead of time to give the adhesive time to stick properly to the frame. We perform approximately 25-30 events a year, and this is all we need to get the job done without any problems. We offer gridwalls for sale in upstate SC that are heavy, clumsy, and a headache to deal with (on that note, we have gridwalls for sale in black that include shelving, wire bins, and other accessories). If you’re interested, please contact me through private message). For eZ up tents, the same holds true: in the event that severe weather forces tents to be removed from the premises, EZ up will be the first to depart the premises. Always. In Gatlinburg, during the Fine ArtsCrafts event, this was exactly what happened this past weekend. They not only cause you to lose your work
  • They also have a tendency to blow into your neighbor’s tent, causing damage to their tent as well. Furthermore, they are not particularly water-resistant. To save yourself the trouble of purchasing a crafthut or trimline tent as well as some Propanels, take the bullet and invest in them. It will be well worth the money you spend. No matter how you look at it, it’s a pleasure to meet real people at real exhibitions and to receive both verbal and monetary feedback. I hope everything goes smoothly for you — best of luck! Yes, my built-in walls (discussed in another piece) were about $30 to construct and didn’t take too much time, but I only utilized them for two exhibitions. Afterwards, I had saved up enough money to begin purchasing propanels—but I wasn’t going to spend the money on them if I didn’t sell anything at my first two shows! Another thing I’ve observed about hanging art is that a lot of people use clothes pins to hang their work on a line, which I think looks really beautiful. However, you must exercise caution because the clothes pins will almost certainly leave a mark on your mats (or the print itself). If you are able to clip to the top of the bag rather than to the mat, or to just the very tippy tippy top of the mat, that may be acceptable, but you do not want dents in your mats or prints as a result of this. At 11:09 p.m. on May 18, 2009, 1118566 Thank you to everyone for their suggestions. I understand what you’re saying about making an investment in a suitable setup to ensure that everything runs properly, but I don’t believe now is the ideal moment for me to make that investment. As things stand right now, I’m very certain that I’m going to end up taking a bath on this one. So far, I’ve spent $75 on booth fees and $120 on a tent, and I’m getting ready to pay another $425 to have a small quantity of giclees and prints created of two of my most popular paintings so that I have something that I can sell to those who just want to “take a stroll to the ATM” inexpensive. My calculations have revealed that I will need to sell all of my prints (8 at $35 each) and giclees (6 at $100 each) plus an original painting or two in order to make a significant profit from this. That’s a pretty high bar to set. I’m not going to be crushed if I get skunked or only sell a couple of prints, but that’s why I’m looking for something inexpensive to use as a display. At the very least, the prints and giclees will be available for sale in the future. This week, I’ve been putting in a lot of effort to locate grid walls, but I haven’t had much success. I inquired about renting store fixtures with three different companies that sell store fixtures. For renting them, one company charged $100 and another wanted $130. If I go that path, I might as well pay another $70-$80 to purchase them, but as I previously stated, I don’t want to make that commitment at this time. So I’ve sent out an email to the artist group that I’m now a member of asking if they could lend me something, and I’ve also posted on several regional art group pages to see if I can find anything

Canopy set-up help!

I’m a complete novice when it comes to art shows. There are so many various possibilities for display that I’m having trouble deciding which is the greatest option! I really enjoy the pro-panels, but they’re too expensive for me to afford as a full-time college student. I enjoy the mesh panels as well, but I don’t care for the fact that they are see-through to the outside world. I believe that when there is a solid background behind the painting, it appears much crisper. I’d like to construct my own panels out of grid walls or other similar materials, but I’m not sure I’d be satisfied with the results (to cluttery).

  1. Furthermore, I will be selling photography and will have a number of huge canvas and framed photos that will be displayed on the walls of the gallery.
  2. Aside from that, is it feasible for my work to be hung straight from the frame of an ez-up canopy without a frame?
  3. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

How to: Art Festival Set-up

AutumnArt was held in Wichita, Kansas, over the weekend, and I was there. I have shown my work in a number of venues and at a variety of events, but this was the first multi-day event for which I was responsible for setting up my own booth. The previous multi-day events I’ve worked on have either been inside or where I’ve furnished the tent and walls myself. Even though I’ve worked on a number of single-day outdoor events, when you’re looking at the ability to reliably set up for several days and a variety of weather conditions, as well as leaving your tent overnight, you’re talking about a new sort of infrastructure.

  1. We did not purchase any ProPanels, which are also in the same price range.
  2. Testimonial for the TentWe got this tent from Sam’s.
  3. Side walls are included, which was a necessary addition because we were planning to leave the tent overnight in order to use it.
  4. We found the tent to be really simple to up and take down.
  5. It is large and heavy, yet it is on wheels.
  6. In the middle of one of the side walls is a zipper that allows you to have the wall down yet open in case of severe weather, which is really convenient (see below).
  7. We experienced mist and a couple brief bouts of heavy rain, but nothing too serious.

We got a couple of strong gusts of wind that tore the Velcro apart in a few of spots.

Please accept my thanks for recommending this tent to me, Danika Ostrowski.

We created weights out of 4 inch PVC pipe.

In each pipe, we bored two holes that were approximately a foot apart longitudinally and then inserted eye screws into them.

After that, we filled the pipes with sand and covered the other ends with caps.

In addition, the handle and eye screws provide a means of attaching the weights to the tent.

We placed two weights on the ground at the tent’s front corners and secured them to the tent’s top using 550 cable to keep the tent from blowing away.

We didn’t have much wind throughout the weekend, but the tent stayed put despite the few gusts that came our way.

They are simple to set up and, according to reports, can support 300 pounds apiece.

I had a strong desire to paint on a white backdrop for my works.

I’m interested to see if the holes in the mesh become stretched out over time and begin to look ragged after a few of usage.

Additionally, the poles that these require at the bottom of the tent (which you can get from Flourish along with the necessary hardware) lend structural support to the tent.

They are packaged in a sturdy, well-designed carrying bag.

They were reasonably priced, and maybe most importantly, they do not become too hot.

We utilized clips and twist ties to attach the extension line and the lights to the tent’s frame, which worked well.

When I had a one-day event that was only a few hours long, I would wear this get-up many times.

If you are camping alone, you will need to enlist the assistance of a friend or family member for a few minutes to help you expand and raise the tent.

Otherwise, you will most likely be able to do the task yourself, although it will take some time. I hope you find this information beneficial. And, no, they aren’t affiliate links, which is sad.

How to Display Paintings at an Art Show

This section contains information on how to display paintings during a gallery show, including ideas for large-scale portable art displays, suggestions for showing smaller prints and cards, and general best practices for designing a craft booth.

Consider Displaying a Painting on an Art Display Easel

When exhibiting their work at art fairs, some painters choose to utilize a display easel. It is recommended that you position an easel in the front corner of your booth to bring attention to your work. It’s an efficient approach to draw attention to one of your most eye-catching works of art. Look for a solid art display easel that isn’t too light, so that it can withstand a little wind when used at outdoor events. Several easels are equipped with clamps that hold your artwork in place, making them more durable overall.

Make certain that the height is adequate for your requirements.

How to Display Art Prints for Sale

Smaller art prints and greeting cards can be presented well using the following methods:

Choose the Right Tables to Display Your Art Prints

If you intend to exhibit your prints on a tabletop display, be mindful of the height and breadth of the display. Craft exhibition attendees were treated to art prints from The Critter Co. Rachel, the proprietor of The Critter Co., has set up her work (seen above) attractively at eye level and provided enough of space for customers to peruse. Standard tables are around 30 inches in height, which is too low for consumers to comfortably peruse at their leisure. It is preferable to have a tabletop display elevated to counter height so that consumers can explore without stooping over.

Many tables are 30-36 inches wide, which might be too broad for a 10×10 foot craft stand with a few tables.

Protect your Art Prints and Cards

You want to encourage buyers to explore your prints and cards since doing so increases the likelihood that they will make a purchase. All of this handling, on the other hand, might create wear and tear on your prints.

Clear plastic bags may be used to protect your prints from the wear and tear caused by the handling of browsers. They are a reasonably priced investment in the protection of your product and can be obtained from art supply retailers.

Best Practices for Displaying Paintings at an Art Show

In conclusion, when creating your art show, keep the following excellent practices in mind:

  • Large-scale art captures the attention of customers even when they are a long distance away. The impact and drama of grouping a series of paintings or an uniform color scheme are increased. The display of a huge item on an outside wall can attract clients from a wider range of locations. The color of your backdrop has an influence on your presentation and should complement your artwork. It is crucial to have good lighting in order to display your work at its best.

Large-scale art draws shoppers’ attention from a distance

The presence of larger objects at your booth will aid to draw people’s attention to your establishment. Paintings on display during a gallery exhibition In contrast, if you produce on a smaller scale, try constructing a bigger replica of one of your most powerful things to allow buyers to view your work from a distance and appreciate it more. This may be accomplished quickly and easily with a large-scale poster of your artwork. I collaborated with a local print company to design a unique, large-scale poster for the occasion.

The finished product looked fantastic, and the job was performed in a relatively short period of time.

Grouping a series of paintings or a unified color scheme adds impact and drama

If you have a collection of works that are all based on the same topic or color scheme, don’t separate them. Group them together and hang them from a single hook. Artwork placed in a cohesive grouping will have a greater effect and dramatic influence on the viewer.

Displaying a large piece on an outside wall can draw customers from more directions

If your booth space is at the end of a row, and one side of your tent is open to customer traffic and sightlines, consider putting a large, eye-catching canvas on the outside-facing wall of your tent to capture the attention of potential customers. It will allow approaching visitors to get a sense of your style before they ever step foot in your booth, and it can attract shoppers from a wider range of locations.

The color of your backdrop impacts your display and must enhance your art

Consider the color of the backdrop you intend to employ very carefully. At art exhibitions, paintings are most typically presented against a white background to emphasize their contrast. It’s simple to obtain white mesh display panels, and if you use another technique to hang your art, such as grid wall panels, you may utilize white tent sidewalls to serve as a backdrop to conceal the view of what’s beyond your tent. White is an excellent, neutral color that can be used in a variety of contexts without seeming out of place.

Black produces a rich and dramatic appearance, and because it is a neutral hue, it will not clash with the colors in your work.

That aesthetic can be effective if it complements the artwork on exhibit; nevertheless, keep in mind that a backdrop that isn’t neutral might diminish the impact of your piece.

Good lighting is essential to show your work at its best.

A good display lighting system is beneficial for all types of craft show booths, including art exhibits.

Even though it’s easy to disregard lighting while exhibiting in vast halls, excellent portable lighting is critical to presenting your work in the finest light possible.

We’ve discovered that it’s ideal to hang single pieces of artwork at eye level, with a distance of 60 inches from the center to the floor being the perfect number. If you’re hanging your art over furniture, you can hang it anywhere from 4-6 inches above the piece of furniture. If the artwork is to be displayed over a sofa or console, it should be roughly two-thirds the width of the furniture.

How do you hang pictures on a grid wall?

What is the best way to hang a picture grid gallery? Place your photo frames on the floor so that they are facing down (or picture down so the backside is exposed). Using a tape measure, make sure they are all equally spaced. Most image grids have a 1.5′′-2.5′′ gap between each frame, with the exact amount varying based on the size of your wall space and the number of picture frames in your grid.

How do you show art outside?

Look for a solid art display easel that isn’t too light, so that it can withstand a little wind while displaying artwork at outdoor exhibits. Several easels are equipped with clamps that hold your artwork in place, making them more durable overall. Check the measurements of any art display easel that you are considering purchasing. Make certain that the height is adequate for your requirements.

Don’t let your space become cluttered. Maintain a professional demeanor.

Can you put paintings on the floor?

Forget about using a measuring tape and nailing art to the wall; forget about worrying about making holes in your walls; it turns out that you don’t have to hang your art at all. Simply place the artwork on the floor or on a small shelf and lean it against the wall. The result is a relaxed yet sophisticated appearance, with a hint of mystery from a treasure hunt thrown in for good measure.

The major advantage of joining exhibitions is not the opportunity to sell your artwork, but rather the exposure you will obtain as well as the possibility of winning awards. Most shows, on the other hand, will demand that your artworks be available for purchase, therefore you will need to set a price for them. Pricing your artwork may be difficult, and many artists become anxious about it.

What is the formula for hanging pictures?

In order to hang the first component over the plumb line, it is hung half its width (0.5X) above the plumb line. Consider the following example: if your artwork is 8″ broad, you should hang it 4″ above the plumb line. Consequently, in this example, your nail should be centered over the first step at the number “6.” In this case, your next nail is positioned 65″ from the previous nail, which is 57 + 8 = 65.

How high should pictures be hung?

It is recommended that art be hung such that its midway is between 57 and 60 inches above the ground. If the majority of your family members are on the shorter side, aim for the lower end of the spectrum; in rooms with ceilings higher than eight feet, artwork may be placed no higher than 60 inches from the ground.

How many frames should a gallery wall have?

A vertically stacked pattern of 4 to 6 frames is used in this configuration. If you have a thin wall close to a door or window, this is the solution for you. The vertical gallery wall is particularly effective in small areas. For example, consider blending frame types and metals, as well as altering the frame sizes, in order to create visual intrigue.

How do you hang pictures?

A basic nail will do for the majority of images, but a picture hanger will be more effective for larger photographs. Heavy, glass-framed pictures will almost certainly require either direct nailing into a stud (for which you’ll need a stud finder) or the use of a wall plug anchor, which may be purchased separately.

How to hang art in a canopy [With Eye Catching Display System]

Displaying artworks during an exhibition contains ideas for portable art displays for large canvases, suggestions for displaying smaller prints and cards, as well as recommendations for constructing a booth for a craft fair. AutumnArt, which took place in Wichita, Kansas, over the weekend, included me as a participant. This was the first time I was responsible for supplying my own installation for a multi-day display, despite having shown my work in a variety of locations and at a variety of events in the past.

Despite the fact that I’ve participated in several single-day outdoor activities, setting up a tent for multiple days in a range of weather conditions and leaving it overnight necessitates the construction of a new type of infrastructure.

To be clear, we didn’t spend $1,000-$1,500 on the professional tents that the vast majority of festival acts use.

While my ambition is not to become a full-time festival performer, it did seem like I needed a little pick-me-up.

How to hang art in a canopy/great ideas

This tent was purchased from Amazon. This pop-up is nearly twice as expensive as our last one, but it is also twice as effective. Additionally, sidewalls are included in the box, which was a requirement because we planned to leave the tent unattended while we were away. Additionally, the walls provide shade for your hanging gear, which is beneficial during the summer months. It was a breeze to put together and take down the camper. When it comes time to put things away, the bag comes in handy.

  • In any case, even if we did, I don’t want to drag it out any longer.
  • You may choose to have one of the side walls lowered, but leave it open in the event of a natural disaster.
  • As a result of the weather, we had mist and a few showers.
  • A couple strong gusts of wind tore a few Velcro strips from their attachments.

Securing the tent

The tent, on the other hand, is only delivered with stakes. We used 4′′ PVC to construct the weights. We cut a 10′ length of PVC into four pieces using a circular cutter, and then connected test caps to one side of each of the sections. We drilled two holes roughly one foot apart along the length of each pipe and then placed eye screws in each of the holes we made. The eye screws were secured with glue, which we applied. Sand was then applied to the pipes, and the other ends were capped with caps to complete the installation process.

Attaching the weights is accomplished by the use of the handle and eye screws.

Two 550-pound cord-tied weights are placed on the tent’s floor at the tent’s edges.

We used luggage straps to secure our shelter to the ground because there was grass in the area where it was located. Despite the fact that we did not have any wind on Sunday, it did not appear to have any effect on the canopy.

Display system

The eventual result was that we purchased mesh panels from Amazon. They have a combined weight capacity of 300 pounds. They look to be well-kept and professional in appearance. I wanted a white backdrop for my paintings because they are so bright. Using the meshes, you may hang wired artwork from the ceiling or hang it from the walls. It will be interesting to watch if the holes in the mesh widen as a result of regular use and whether or not they begin to seem ragged. In spite of the fact that the wind blows through and wiggles the artwork about a little, I’ve never been concerned about them sliding off the wall.

Five-foot-long panels are folded in half and rolled up to save space on the floor.


These LED lights were obtained from the Amazon marketplace. Most essential, they don’t become too hot while working. Thank you to them for providing me with a lot of light in a variety of settings. When it came time to connect extension wires and lights, we used clips and twisted ties to keep everything in place and secure.

Old set-up

A simple hanging solution made of plastic lattice and S hooks can be made for a low cost if you’re just getting started in the business. In the past, I’ve worn this costume multiple times for one-day activities that lasted only a few hours or minutes each time. Everything, including the inquiry, was carried out with the cooperation of my wife. Even if you are camping alone for a short amount of time, you will need to extend and elevate your tent. Moreover, if it is not possible to engage an expert, you can do the task yourself.

How to Display Paintings at an Art Show

When it comes to showing paintings at an exhibition booth, there is a simple guideline to follow: the smaller the painting, the better. According to popular wisdom, the greater the number of paintings on display, the greater the likelihood that they will sell. Besides being unappealing to the eye, an excessive number of sculptures mounted on the walls or stacked against one other on the floor do not give visitors with a visual break between each artwork before they are confronted with your next piece.

Moving art displays for large-scale canvases are available, as is guidance on how to show small prints and cards.

1. How to display larger Canvases and original art

Large paintings, photographs, and other types of wallpaper are regularly used to decorate the walls of a portable tent, which may accommodate up to 100 people.

You may display your artwork on the walls of your tent by employing the methods listed below.

  • Grid wall panels that can be moved
  • Strong chains or straps
  • Grid wall panels that can be moved
  • Sidewall paneling with art-specific mesh that links to the frame of your craft shelter

Flourish is a well-known brand in the field of mesh panel artwork display systems. Contrary to mesh panels used for art shows, mesh netting walls used to keep pests out of a temporary canopy should not be mistaken with mesh panels used for art exhibits. Paintings are too heavy to be protected by bug nets with mesh.

Consider displaying a painting on an art display easel

Some painters use a display easel to present their work during art shows, and this is a common practice. This can help you distinguish your work from the competition and communicate your point more effectively. The paintings that are the most concentrated within your collection might be presented in this manner. Choose a sturdy easel that is not too light in weight so that it can endure the wind when used in outdoor shows. Some easels can have clamps attached to them to hold your artwork in place.

Make certain that it is the appropriate height for your needs.

2. How to display art prints for sale

Painting prints and cards of a smaller size can be properly displayed in the following ways:

  • The usage of wooden boxes, baskets, and racks for displaying greeting cards are all examples of this.
Choose the right tables to display art prints.

If you intend to exhibit your prints at a tabletop show, you need be aware of the dimensions of the display’s height and breadth. Due to the fact that most typical tables are just 30 inches high on average, customers are unable to adequately explore. A tabletop exhibit should be elevated to counter height so that customers may explore without having to hunch over. In addition, keep an eye on the length of the table. Some tables are 30-36 inches wide for a 1010 foot craft booth, which is typical.

Protect your art prints and cards

Customers should be encouraged to look through your prints and cards, since doing so will boost their probability of making a purchase from you. All of that handling, on the other hand, might cause harm to your prints. Clear plastic bags can help protect your artwork from the extra wear and tear caused by browsers’ handling. They may be purchased at a reasonable price from art supply stores.

3. Best practices for displaying paintings at an art show

Always keep in mind certain recommended practices for showing paintings at an art show when you’re putting one on. They are as follows:

  • Customers are drawn to large-scale paintings when they are browsing through a collection
  • Integrating a number of paintings or a single color scheme into a larger composition boosts the overall impact and emotional response. When a large piece of artwork is put on an outside wall, it may draw attention from visitors coming from all directions. In order to do this, it’s critical to select a color scheme that matches your artwork. When it comes to displaying your work at its best, having the proper lighting is essential.

Large-scale art draws shoppers’ attention from a distance

If you have some larger items to display, your exhibit will be given more attention. Make a larger copy of one of your most powerful items as an alternative so that purchasers may better appreciate your work from a distance. Large-scale posters of your artwork are a simple and effective way to achieve your goals. With the assistance of a local printing shop, a unique, large-scale poster has been developed. Because they were reasonably priced and easy to work with, they were a good choice for many people.

However, if you have access to a local print shop in your area and are interested in creating a large-scale banner for your display, they are an excellent location to start your search for alternatives.

Increased attention and impact are achieved when a group of works is exhibited together or when a consistent color scheme is used throughout.

Grouping a series of paintings or a united color adds impact and drama

Aim to avoid segregating objects that are based on the same theme or color scheme. As a group, put them up on the wall. If you display your artwork in a cohesive grouping, it will have a stronger impact and will be more dramatic in its presentation.

Displaying a large piece on an outside wall can draw customers from more direction

If your booth is at the end of a row with a lot of client activity and vantage points, use eye-catching artwork to bring people’s attention to your booth location. Approaching customers may be able to view your design before they ever arrive at your booth, which can help you attract customers from all over the world.

The color of your backdrop impact your display and must enhance your art

Take adequate consideration to the color of your background. Attending art fairs, you will almost certainly find paintings displayed against a blank white wall. If you’re utilizing mesh display panels, you may use the white sidewalls of the canopy as a backlight. White is a great, neutral color that works well in most circumstances. On the premises, visitors will also be able to view some black-and-white artworks. It will not conflict with the colors of your artwork because black is a neutral hue.

While such style may be appropriate if it matches the artwork on display, bear in mind that a non-neutral background may distract from the overall impression of your work on the viewer.

Good lighting is essential to show your work at its best.

Display lighting is important for all sorts of craft fair booths, but it is especially important for art shows to have proper lighting. Good movable lighting, on the other hand, is essential for showing your art at its best, especially if you’re exhibiting in large settings like galleries.

A topic is more expansive and in-depth, and it conveys a more global message.

It is up to you to choose whether or not the artwork is tranquil.


In general, the more the number of paintings you display, the greater the likelihood that they will sell, however this is not always the case. Beyond being unappealing to the eye, too many pieces hanging on the walls or packed against the walls on the surface do not offer visitors with a visual break before they are confronted with your next piece of artwork. As a result, in order to produce a cohesive presentation that highlights your work to its best advantage, you should stick to the principle of “less is more.” If you have any questions, you may ask them in the comments section and I’ll do my best to answer them.

Hello, my name is John Lee, and I am a seasoned professional in the gardening sector. I have two gardens and have been working in this location for about ten years. I hope that this website will be of assistance to you in obtaining excellent information regarding gardening.

DIY Art Fair Booth Mesh Walls

There have been so many helpful suggestions and improvements provided in the comments area! Thank you to everyone who has contributed, and if this is your first time reading, make sure to read through the comments. I’m a first-time attendee at an art expo. At Domaine Berrien Cellars in Berrien Springs, Michigan, I participated in my first one-day fair. It was an informal, laid-back affair with a modest booth price at my favorite southwest Michigan winery, and it was a great experience. It was a lot of fun, and it was a perfect opportunity to get my toes wet in the world of art fairs and exhibitions.

  • There was live music, wine, wonderful weather, and a lovely group of individuals.
  • The Morton Arboretum’s WineArt Walk, which takes place over two days, was my choice.
  • I paint there, my husband jogs the trails, and my children run about in the Children’s Garden for hours on end.
  • I needed to figure out a method to display my paintings in a way that reflected the high level of craftsmanship I was putting into them.
  • In reality, professional walls of any sort may be extremely (and I mean really!) costly.
  • As a beginner, I wanted to come up with a solution that was both PROFESSIONAL and COST-EFFECTIVE, given that I was just getting started.
  • My order for a mesh tarp from Amazon was an act of faith, as I hoped that the material would be the one I had been seeking for.

I placed two additional orders and then.

I wouldn’t find out until after I had built all of the pieces, set up the tent, and strung everything together.

Furthermore, everything appeared to be of high quality.

I wouldn’t make anything like that up!).

He may have even referred to me as a genius.

Important note: This plan calls for the use of electrical conduit in lengths of 10 feet or more.

These tent walls may not be suitable for you if your automobile is unable to transport them at this length. Perhaps you could attach the conduit to the roof rack of your vehicle. Reading on may inspire you to devise some sort of workaround that will make it more convenient for you. Supplies

  • The following three items are also available at the manufacturer’s online shopping partner site: (3)Heavy Duty Mesh Tarps, White, 7’x10′ (final size approximately 6’6″x9’6) Approximately $40
  • (1) box of chocolates The following items are available at home improvement stores: Ball Bungees, White, 6″ (about $17

  • Drapery Hooks – I purchased mine atJoAnn Fabrics for approximately $5. I used two boxes for a total of around $12 — hunt for significant percent off coupons to save money

THREE (3) tent walls for less than $200 in total (approx). Please keep in mind that my tent is a Eurmax Premium 10′ x 10′ Canopy (tip: you canfind them at Costcofor a great price). It features a frame in the shape of scissors. Until now, my only experience with these walls has been in a tent of this sort. If your tent does not have a scissors-style frame, you’ll have to consider whether or not this will work with it. *Don’t forget that doing things yourself generally entails more work in exchange for saving money.

This is the section that requires the greatest “effort.” Placing the conduit along one of the tarp’s long sides and folding it over such that a pocket forms around the conduit is a good idea.

Make a pile of basting stitches at each grommet, according to this non-seamstress, using the kite string to keep the tarp in place.


Knots on the back of the neck!

This is something you might be able to perform with a sewing machine if you are a seamstress (question: what is the gender-neutral name for this?).

My sewing machine’s plate was damaged and two needles were broken as a result of the accident.



Repeat the process for the other two.

It turns out that this is to our benefit.

After your tent has been put up, you may begin hanging the walls.

The conduit is suspended from the corners of the frame, which is supported by the intersection of the two frame sides that come together.

Attach one conduit mesh wall to the ceiling.

This is a positive development.


Make sure you thread your tie through the mesh wall, around both the conduit and your tent’s frame.

The tails of the knots should be hidden behind the wall.

Insert a bungee tie through each grommet along the vertical edges of the wall, looping the bungee tie around the tent leg and lastly around the ball to lock the wall in place.

Repeat the process for the remaining three walls.

That’s all there is to it!

It was necessary to utilize two hooks for each painting, which were set a reasonable distance apart, in order to avoid the paintings appearing to be dozing off.

For my largest pieces, I put (stolen) wreath frames over the conduit and tent frame to support the weight of the work.

You may have noticed that I have some wrinkles on my face.

Next time, I’ll leave the tarps folded and slip them into the conduit as part of the tent setup, which should help to keep creases to an absolute minimum.

Another issue to consider is storage space in your house or studio.

However, unlike tent poles (although wouldn’t it be lovely if they did! ), the 10′ conduit does not fold. I slipped them into the I-beam and framework of my unfinished basement ceiling, which provided stability. They’re all set for the next year!
