Re: Displaying alt prints
Rajul...do you have any photos of this method?
Do you mean the prints were in the bags and then hung on the panels?
I like the idea of a quick change-out method but not the display of a print
in a bag...hmm

Subject: Displaying alt prints
FWIW, I would like to share my experience on this subject which has cut
enormous outlays of time and expense in accomplishing repeated hangings
at the gallery which has carried my work until the economics of floor
space and costs caused them to relocate (still in progress).
All my prints (~8 x 10", on various paper media) were matted (outer
dimensions 16 x 20") and enclosed in Clearview plastic bags. These were
held on metal panels (20 x 24") that were bent at the top to provide a
lip for hanging, using 2 strong magnets. The panels were powder-coated
with a cool grey-brown color that showed off platinum, Kalli or cyano-gum
and other combos to great advantage (based on viewer feed-back).
At the end of a showing, all I had to do was to swap the old for new
prints and voila, that was it.
Hope others will share their experiences to enable alt printers to devote
more time to the thrill of generating prints that delight.
