MasterPak boxes come with cushioning that is made up of small perforated squares that you tear away to create a custom fit for your artwork. Genius!

St Augustine Art Associations 7TH Annual Nature Wildlife Exhibit – Fortunately, I have had two paintings selected to take part in the St. Augustine Art Association’s 7TH Annual Nature & Wildlife Exhibition. This juried exhibition has been featured by the St. Augustine Art Association Gallery once a year for the last seven years. Now I have the privilege of exhibiting my artwork in this year’s show.

Being a New Jersey resident, this requires shipping my paintings to the gallery in St. Augustine, Florida. Once delivered, they can hang them and arrange them suitably with the fine artwork of all the other artists. To safely ensure the delivery of my artwork and make a good first impression, I purchased custom art shipping boxes from MasterPak.

MasterPak (http://www.masterpak-usa.com) has a great website that allows you to choose the correct box for your painting based on the framed width, height and thickness of your framed artwork. Additionally, each box is rated by a crush weight and have puncture proof barriers on the inside. MasterPak boxes contain three foam cushions. There is one cushion for the top. One in the middle which surrounds the framed artwork. And there is one cushion on the bottom. Also, one of the best features of the MasterPak boxes is that the center foam cushion inside is perforated into squares. This allows you to tear out a section of the middle cushion giving your artwork a custom fit inside the box. MasterPak recommends that you keep that section that was removed so you can use the box again for a different sized piece of art.

My hope is that my paintings will sell. The St. Augustine Art Association will be very happy and the boxes will return to me empty. The exhibition runs from July 23rd to August 28th. Please stop by if you are in the St. Augustine, Florida area during that time and check out the exhibition. I’ll be there for the opening reception on Saturday evening, July 23rd so please stop in and say hello.
