Why frame with us?
Art Images Gallery offers a comprehensive range of framing options to suit any style and budget. We specialise and understand the benefits of conservation framing so the aesthetic integrity of an artwork is retained. By using high quality archival materials we are able to preserve and maintain the value and characteristics of an artwork over the long term.
All work is guaranteed and carried out in the workshop at the rear of the Gallery. If you are unhappy with any aspects we will address your concerns.
We frame fine art as well as certificates, photos, mirrors and memorabilia.
Fine Art Framing
Picture framing is critical in the protection and presentation of art. If the artwork is to be fully appreciated the appropriate frame makes an incredible difference. Custom framing of original artworks takes a special eye and appreciation for fine art. Understanding the nature of the artwork is critical to determine the best framing option. We use acid free backing and archival mats to ensure the integrity of the art work is maintained and if required reversible. A variety of options are available, at Art Images Gallery we find the ideal framing solution to suit both your home and your budget.
We custom make a stretcher frame to suit the individual art work.
Whether it is an indigenous painting on linen or a modern work on canvas/cotton requiring re-stretching to achieve its former glory we have the solution.
Once your canvas or linen is stretched, we can consider frames. We have a comprehensive range of shadow frames which can give canvases the finishing touch.
Restoration and Conservation Framing
If you have something that is valuable, conservation framing is necessary but there are degrees of conservation framing. The right advice is important and our trained staff will guide you through the options. The causes of artwork deterioration vary and not all can be controlled. Long term exposure to light and damaging UV can be minimized by using TruVu or Museum Glass. TruVu glass reduces the effects of UV by 70% and Museum glass by 90%. Both substantially reduce glare and reflections when compared with standard glass.
If you have an artwork that has been damaged we can refer you to a conservation and restoration specialist before re-framing your artwork.
