Acoustic and folding room dividers from Portable Partitions Australia were selected by the Tumut Art Society in New South Wales to serve as portable picture hanging systems for their exhibitions.
Art galleries need a picture hanging system that’s flexible, versatile and easy to set up when preparing for a show or exhibition. By allowing galleries to add extra walls as needed in any location, folding art display panels offer a distinct advantage over traditional gallery hanging systems. This flexibility enables exhibition designers, gallery owners and curators to showcase the art to its advantage rather than work within the limitations of a permanent structure.
Folding art displays also enhance the overall visitor experience by allowing people the freedom to navigate the gallery space and appreciate the art on show on their terms.
Located in Tumut, New South Wales, the Tumut Art Society has been hosting art and photography exhibitions for more than 50 years with their annual highlight being a show at Easter that draws hundreds of entrants from around Australia.
The Tumut Art Society recently created a mobile art display at a local art gallery with a 360 acoustic room divider and five afford-a-wall folding room dividers from Portable Partitions Australia. Manufactured in Australia, the folding acoustic room dividers provide a gallery hanging system that’s flexible in both position and shape. The Tumut organisers chose panels with a polycarbonate finish, providing 100 percent waterproof protection and enabling easy cleaning.
The portable dividers were positioned to give the show a light, airy look with plenty of room for visitors to appreciate the works of art on display without feeling crowded. The white panels of the dividers provided a strong contrast to the artwork, keeping focus on the exhibit.
The flexible art display panels from Portable Partitions benefit art galleries, museums and art show organisers such as Tumut by providing a simple art hanging system that works within the confines of any building. Even organisations such as schools, libraries, hospitals and businesses with their occasional shows can benefit from the flexible structure.
Portable picture hanging systems are cost-effective and simple to set up, saving show designers considerable time and money when organising a show, and enabling them to create a showcase that’s customised to the size, shape and style of the art on display without the expense, equipment or resources required for permanent changes.
