Larry Berman replied to marla faith's discussion advice needed on hanging framed art from a wall-less tent
"If you tie to the tent using fishing line it will look tacky and make your work look less valuable. Mesh walls is a good idea but you can also make your own temporary panels using 2x2 frame with chicken wire attached to the 2x2's. Or pick up a…"

Larry Berman replied to Kristen Nazzaro's discussion Display2Go panels - thoughts?
"If you haven't figured it out yet, these are indoor panels and not meant for outdoor art shows. Look into breakdown panels from Pro Panels. Whatever panels you end up with, they have to have legs so water can flow through your booth when it…"

After having an Endoscopy which didn't show anything, my doctor sent me for a Colonoscopy. The result was finding a lemon size tumor and they wouldn't let me leave the hospital, scheduling me for surgery the…See More

Larry Berman replied to Kristen Nazzaro's discussion Table display ideas?
"Those other things are considered reproductions and are not allowed at the better shows. So depending on what show you are doing you may be asked to remove them, especially since you didn't apply with a booth picture showing them. Since…"
