The Bay is a unique setting for the arts, with vibrant hubs in San Fransisco and surrounding areas. Artists exploring the Bay Area’s unique culture or collecting from the state can benefit from specialized and exclusive fine art transportation services built for the pacific northwest. Bay Area artists and art collectors can rest assured that their collections get to their location effectively with Art Work FAS.
Art Transportation for the Bay Area’s Unique Needs
California is a state with a diverse culture and landscape. Considered a Mediterranean climate, the seasons can range from hot dry summers to cool, rainy winters. Many days, cloud coverage and moisture sit on areas like San Fransisco. When it comes to transporting artwork across throughout Northern California, reliable art transportation is a must-have.
Sudden changes in temperature can be devastating for fine art. Changes in temperature cause paintings to stretch or shrink, resulting in cracking, stretching, distorting, or swelling. Particularly sunny days can result in melting or fading. The humid, Bay Area air can cause art pieces to swell and be more susceptible to damage. With Art Work Fine Art Services, artists can employ climate controlled private shuttles and standard West Coast shuttles to transport across North California, ensuring that art arrives safely to its location.
Crate Collections for Art Transportation
Art Work Fine Art Services provides custom crates for your fine art pieces. Frameless artwork needs to be wrapped in acid-free protection and framed paintings must be packed in fitted crates.
Sculptures with unique shapes and corners often require internal supports, as well as the input of experts who can ensure proper weight distribution. Customized crating is crucial for these valuable sculptures.
