As an art-handler and preparator, I have experience in all facets of exhibition-making and display; as an artist, I understand the various needs of folx working in a variety of dimensions and media. Special projects, custom objects and long drives are my specialty, artists are my priority.
Installation & Consultation
Professional art installation for private homes and galleries
Professional installation means proper handling of fragile artworks, using the correct hardware for the job, and done efficiently and effectively for long-term display. Door-to-door services include deinstallation, wrapping, transport, and installation on site with expert care.
Exhibition fixtures, frames and stretchers
Wood is at the heart of what I love to do. Frames, stretchers, pedestals and display shelves are common requests, but I love special projects. Services are available for both individual artists and institutions and rates are equitably distinctive.
Crating & Courier Services
Objects moved safely to and fro
Getting things safely from one place to another is an essential element to any install job. Sometimes you need a heavy-duty crate, but other times temporary soft-packing is enough for the job. Custom crating and courier services (both local and nation-wide) are available to artists and galleries requiring door-to-door services for exhibitions and private sales.
Rates are variable depending on time, labor, materials and customer. Businesses, institutions and organizations are billed at a higher rate than individual artists to reflect the inequities of industry. Individual ALAANA artists prioritized and receive discounted services. Black Lives Matter. Ask me why.
