FREE - Must Register

Join us for a lecture about making the right framing choices. We will discuss and demonstrate framing ideas, principles, aesthetics, and cost effective methods for choosing the right frame for your masterpiece. Everything from sellecting the perfect moulding to cost saving tips that will bring in more profit on your art sales.

Get familiar with conservation concerns in matting, glass and finishing. We will have examples of framed pieces to show and talk about what is successful and how a frame can fail and wrecks the intent of the artwork.

Learn to pick the perfect frame and display your work in just the right way.

  • Wide frame?
  • Skinny frame?
  • Liner, no liner?
  • Ornate or modern feel?
  • Classic or western?

Bring your artwork to get some advice and try it out in a number of different styles to see what really sets it off. Learn the styling concerns for both works under glass and works on canvas or panel.

Hannah from Framed on Fifth will bring a variety of samples and show you new and innovated ideas on what you should be doing to frame your artwork in order to wow your audience.
