Handling Artwork

Avoiding Self-Inflicted Damage

  •  Wear white cotton or nitrile gloves.

Use a two-handed grip

  • Carry one piece at a time
  • Carry paintings in a vertical position, and never by a hanging wire
  • Hinged works should be carried and stored in “closed” position
  • Three dimensional pieces should never be carried by protruding parts.
