Days 8 & 9 - The Set Up

The last two days have been a bit of a blur as we set up the gallery for the show. We were told that we had one-meter walls on which to hang the art, so we came up with a plan as to how we'd layout the room based on the number of pieces we were bringing.

When we got to the room, everything was laid out to our specification, with one minor difference - the wall panels were all two meters wide. Not bad if you're trying to cover an exhaust port on the Death Star, but it added a bit of a logistical challenge to our layout. We later found out they did this because in our sample layout, the walls 'appeared to be larger than one meter.' That's what we get for asking for an 18" Stonehenge monument.

Fortunately our crates arrived safely and we were able to get to work sorting the art out in the order we planned to display it.

John and Paul took a moment for a commemorative photo before hanging the first piece in the gallery - Ralph's first Star Wars drawings.

We got about half of the art hung by the end of the day Tuesday, and the rest up quickly Wednesday morning. We also hung our banner to complement the room description the show provided.

Here are several shots throughout the finished gallery.

We're quite happy with how it turned out. We'll see if George likes it when he comes by Friday morning. IF he comes by.

We'll try to catch up on food updates in the next post. It's time to get this show on the road!
