I'm a painter in Brooklyn, NY who's trying to get some paintings down to Louisville, GA for a show in the totally awesome, scrappy, rural, non-profit Fire House Gallery. For an opening on December 4th! Gulp.
The cheapest way to get the work there and back is to drive it myself. The final math is showing that it's going to take $1862.31 just for the van rental costs-- plus another $480 for gas.
And here's the thing-- it turns out that for roughly $200 more each way, we could rent a bigger truck (with almost the same gas mileage!) And that way these two great big fire paintings (that were edited out because of this extra cost) can be part of this show. And that would be really awesome because we are talking about two paintings that are literally of things burning-- so a successful kickstarter project would put the fire in the fire house!
