So, let me share some tips and hints for eco-friendly framing.

The Gallery Framing Aesthetic

This month we celebrate the gallery framing aesthetic.
By definition, gallery framing is the simplest, most sophisticated answer to the question of  “how to frame a picture.” The very idea of gallery framing is derived from the historic guidelines fine art galleries worldwide have used for entry into their spaces: a simple frame, a single high-quality mat board, plexiglas or acrylic glazing, and usually a structured, quality backing. These standards protect the art and allow the gallery to create a unified, cohesive exhibit from varied work.
