Handle With Care

This week, the folks at TAM have been receiving, uncrating, and installing the upcoming exhibition, "What's New, Pussycat." The show opens Saturday, January 22, 2011.

Text on sticker on backside of an artwork, or perhaps on part of work's crate:

"Handling instructions:

*Please handle with care. Surface is extremely delicate.

*Painting should be transported and stored in specialty made crates without anything touching the surface of the painting.

*Paintings can be temporarily wrapped in very loose plastic, but only for short periods of time and not in warm weather (over 80 degrees).

*Only wrap in plastic that has no creases (NO GLASSINE!)

*Only use bubble face out and then only over clear plastic and wrap very loosely.

*Only use cardboard on outside of bubble wrap.

*The surface of the painting should never be touched. This can be lightly dusted with a super fine lens cleaning cloth."
