Simply stated, conservation framing is the practice of using materials and techniques that neither alter nor harm your artwork. We employ conservation techniques like dust covers and acid-free materials to ensure your artwork’s appearance remains intact for years. Generally this involves utilizing some combination of the following elements:
Materials: acid-free, ph neutral matting, supports, backers, fillers and dust covers; ultra violet filtering glass or plexi-glass (think of it as sunscreen for your art!)
Techniques: hinge mounting, sealing, or lining so as to isolate potentially damaging contact between artwork and wood frames, fillets, fabrics, dyes and other acidic materials
Sometimes a mirror is the missing element in a space. We will design a stunning mirror for you that will pull together all the pieces in your room. With more than 1,500 frame samples to choose from, you’ll find the color, texture and finish you want. We will make certain that the mirror is the correct scale and proportion for your interior.
It is important to stretch needle art in a manner that presents it flat, in square and clean. We are experts in needle art stretching. For over 40 years our staff has been preserving both antique needle artwork as well as contemporary work by local artists using reversible methods and acid-free materials to prevent degradation.
This is a wonderful way to tell a visual story using one or more three-dimensional elements. We create original “shadow boxing” designs that display one or more collectibles in an eye-catching way.
