The Albers are reframed, hung and look...
Posted by Kevin Sharkey
1 The Albers prints arrive all packed up and I must admit I had a moment of panic.
2 But then I saw Joe Brentano's label and knew it was going to be alright.
3 I had remembered to take a photo of the prints prior to the re-framing so I knew the exact placement that I liked.
4 I laid them all out.
5 I unwrapped each one. It was really quite exciting.
6 Even with a layer of protection, I knew they looked perfect.
7 I placed them for David Kassel so that he would know where each one belonged.
8 David and Atsushi begin the process of rehanging the Albers.
9 Once all of the hardware is measured out and up, the fun begins.
10 Here they go.
11 David and Atsushi took great care.
12 I love the way it's looking.
13 David told some wonderful stories as he worked about Albers. He knew the guys who mixed the colors.
14 Final moments.
15 Last touches.
16 Atsushi is a perfectionist.
17 David and Atsushi stand back and admire their work...and Joe Brentano's.
18 I love them.
Amazing. I am so thrilled with the final framing job that Joe Brentano did for the collection of prints. Gone are the shadows and reflections. What I now have is a great presentation of the work that is also archival and will protect the art for years.
First, Bob Tobin had to come in, remove the old hardware, spackle and sand the walls. Then, of course, my good friend David Kassel, of iLevel Art Placement and Installation, returned with Atsushi to re-hang the work. And they all did a great job.
The whole process was worth the effort. While the first attempt was beautiful and I could have lived with it, what I have now is exactly what I want. The artwork is the first thing visitors see when they arrive at my apartment and I wanted it to look, well, perfect, And it does.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to make this project a success.
