Hanging art is easier said than done. Learn the basics of installing framed and unframed artwork from a professional gallery technician, as well as how to creatively problem-solve challenging situations. This workshop will cover fundamental techniques for hanging work safely and securely on different wall types, as well as the basics of layout for different spaces. It is essential for anyone who wants to understand how to best display their artwork. It will be mainly theoretical, so no need to bring your hammer!

Register online or by calling the Creative Manitoba office (204-927-2787) or emailing Aaron at [email protected] Cash payments will be taken at the door on the night of the workshop.

Presenter:
Johanna Poortenaar is a gallery preparator and installation technician who has installed artwork at a variety of museums, galleries and artist-run centers in Winnipeg, including the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Plug in ICA and MAWA. Poortenaar is also working as an art handler for Palka Fine Art Services.
