How To Display Your Artwork ?

Light may be damaging to artwork. However,  the following practices can help you maximize both the enjoyment and longevity of your artwork:


  • Avoid hanging artwork in direct sunlight.
  • Reduce overall lighting levels—dim the lights whenever possible.
  • Use incandescent or LED bulbs to light your art—they emit less UV rays than fluorescent lights.
  • Choose a glazing product that meets conservation standards by providing at least 97% UV protection.
  • Choose anti-reflective glazing such as Tru Vue® Optium Museum Acrylic® or Museum Glass® to reduce reflections.



 

WHAT TYPE OF FRAMES DO YOU HAVE ?

We offer a wide selection of high quality designer moulding made of 100% solid wood. There are a variety of finishes, designs , color and sizes to choose from. We are proud to work with the leading manufactures in the country including Larson Juhl , Studio Moulding, Max Moulding and more. 

WHAT TYPE OF MATBOARD DO YOU USE?


Matting is not only an intricate part of frame design, but is especially an important way to protect your work of art. Acid-free matting prevents your artwork from turning brown and getting acid stains. We offer a broad range of conservation mat options including acid free mat, handwraped100% silk or linen mat.

WHAT TYPE OF GLASS DO YOU USE?


Glazing is just as important as matting . We highly recommend Plexiglas or ultra-violet (UV)filtering Plexiglas for framing. Plexiglas has an added benefit of being lighter than glass. Glass could shatter and ruin your artwork. We also carry Conservation Clear and Museum Glass from TruVue . Both options provide 99% UV protection and prevent your art from fading.
