January 11, 2012 // Franchising.com // Denver – Craters & Freighters, the local leader in custom packaging, crating and shipping provides its services to the Western Art Exhibit and Sale at this year’s 106th annual National Western Stock Show.
“The National Western Stock Show organizes and produces several events annually to benefit the National Western Scholarship Trust, including the Coors Western Art Exhibit and Sale. This year, the Trust awarded 71 grants for the 2010-2011 school year. The grants range from $2500 to $6000 and are presented to students studying agriculture and medicine for practice in rural areas at colleges in Colorado and Wyoming,” according to the National Western Stock Show Website.
Craters & Freighters of Denver attends the Coors Western Art Exhibit and Sale’s Red Carpet Opening Reception where hundreds of local artworks are sold as part of a silent auction to benefit the National Western Scholarship Trust. The Denver location provides local deliveries, as well as out of state crating and shipping to the buyers of the auctioned artworks. Additionally, shipping services are available for the remainder of the exhibit for any additional purchases attendees make.
“We’ve been providing our services to Stock Show attendees for about ten years now. Often times someone wants to buy a piece of artwork from the auction or exhibit but doesn’t know how they will ever get it home, and that’s where we come in. We protect the item for transit and local delivery and also provide custom packaging, crating and shipping solutions to visitors from around the country. If you have your eye on a large painting or sculpture, we can help you get it home! We are always happy to make our services available to the National Western Scholarship Trust and to be a part of the local Denver community by attending the National Western Stock show each year,” said Scott Simpson, with Craters & Freighters of Denver.
Many of the paintings are large, one-of-a-kind, and of high-value. Having an experienced shipping company handling them properly is a top priority. Once the exhibit comes to a close, Craters & Freighters of Denver will pack, crate and ship any remaining artworks back to the artists.
