As a rule of thumb when creating a mixed exhibition of large, medium and small paintings I try to present between 24 and 30 artworks as a body of work, but the space you will be using for your exhibition, your concept style and how much time you have will all be a factor in how many works you actually need.

Curators make decisions about which works of art should be displayed and how they should be seen. They also decide on the themes and ideas to be experienced by the audience.
What is an exhibition checklist?
This is the research and discovery phase of the exhibition process (though you will undoubtedly make new discoveries later on in the process, too). You’ve probably already done some exploring. In this phase, you will consider what objects to include in your exhibition.

Artists do no get paid for exhibitions in and of themselves. Occasionally a gallery may reimburse some of an artist’s travel expenses, but even that is unexpected and would probably only occur under a special arrangement or unique circumstances. They’ll probably get treated to a fancy dinner and some drinks, though.
How do you price art for beginners?
Multiply the painting’s width by its length to arrive at the total size, in square inches. Then multiply that number by a set dollar amount that’s appropriate for your reputation. I currently use $6 per square inch for oil paintings. Then calculate your cost of canvas and framing, and then double that number.
