Sometimes, customers have specific ideas on how they want to frame their work. That was the case of Monique. She thought she wanted a very simple frame for her extremely elaborated drawings. After looking at the options she had in mind, we recommended what we thought it was the best match for the piece. This frame was a very elaborated black and silver baroque frame from our Baroque Collection. Luckily, she was open minded for a change. Since we are friends, I even joked with her and told her that I refused to frame her work any other way. She agreed to go with the suggestions and Voila!!!!!!! Magic happened. The drawings couldn't look any better. Hundreds of hours of work on those drawings are now complemented with the elaborated frames. We also used museum rag mat and conservation glass from Tru Vue. Aren't they gorgeous?? Thanks Monique for your trust!

The photography "Mixed Emotion", 2015 by Anna Fawcus was custom framed at Frames and Stretchers. We went over the top with this baroque ornamented frame moulding which complements the strong artist's statement. The piece is floating over white museum mat and topped with black Rising museum rag as well. And of course, Tru Vue museum glass to achieved amazing image clarity and conservation.
Her work is currently on view at Con Artist Collective on Ludlow St.
