Fine Art Packing Demo

Saturday, May 21, 2016, 10AM - 12PM

The Fitchburg Art Museum and ArtsWorcester are teaming up to offer an art packing demonstration for artists!

Presenting your artwork in the best possible light is an important part of exhibiting and selling. Letting curators, galleries, and collectors know you take pride in what you do starts with how your artwork arrives to them. Proper packing protects your work and sends the right message. But don't fear! If you don't know which way bubble wrap is supposed to face, or the best tape to use, you are not alone.

Professional preparator Tim Johnson will demonstrate best practices, tricks of the trade, and answer all of your burning questions on how to soft pack fine art and crafts for local delivery. Tim Johnson is a freelance preparator, providing art installation services to museums, galleries and individuals in New England. In addition to ArtsWorcester, he regularly installs exhibitions at the Cantor Art Gallery at the College of the Holy Cross, Clark Art Institute, and the Danforth Museum of Art.

This event is free to all FAM and ArtsWorcester members. Non-members are welcome, with a $25 participation fee. Artists registering for FAM's 81st Regional Show automatically become a member of FAM. Registration is required by May 13, 2016.  Please RSVP to the Fitchburg Art Museum, by an email to  Let their office know if you are a member of either ArtsWorcester or FAM when you RSVP.
