Framing For Artists

Live An Artful Life Gallery

Jun. 16, 2016, 12:00 am

6474 Main Street

Artists, as painters, often the necessary evil is framing. But framing is not only an important part of presentation, it’s a functional part of protecting and hanging your artwork and unfortunately many artists do it incorrectly.  In this workshop artists will learn the simple tools and proper do-it-yourself techniques and materials of framing. Learn not only what hardware to use, but the proper placement of it.  Learn the best hanging wire and the proper framing knot to use and why.  These techniques will put you on the good side of gallery and art show managers and insure safety when installing your art in a collector’s home.

Presenters: Linda Neel is an artist, gallery owner and Certified Professional Picture Framer. She opened the first art gallery in Leesburg, VA in 1984 and became known for her distinctive custom framing.

Clients always comment on his choice of beautiful framing and how it enhances his original paintings.
