The Fine Art of Picture Framing

 

“The most important thing in art is The Frame. For painting: literally; for other arts: figuratively— because, without this humble appliance, you can’t know where The Art stops and The Real World begins. You have to put a ‘box’ around it because otherwise, what is that %$@# on the wall?”

-Frank Zappa

Proper framing of your art is extremely important so here are some tips to consider when framing any artwork:

1. Choosing the Frame The frame should match the style of the image and the style of the space it will be presented in.

2. Choosing a Mat The purpose of matting is to separate the art from the glass. The importance of this is to allow air flow between the two so that they do not stick together. It’s also used to give visual space to your artwork and create a transition from the art to the wall.

3. Choosing the Glass Light and moisture are artworks’ worst known enemies so when choosing glass for your piece there are a number of things to consider depending on how concerned you are about being archival. Make sure to always ask what your options are: they can range from plexi-glass to high quality museum glass.

Following these three simple steps can help you achieve the best results for framing your artwork. Visit The Studio on the web to see more about us and the services we provide.
