Framing enquiries

To give you the best service on framing enquiries, it is best you bring your artwork to the gallery. 

Bespoke framing to a high standard using conservation materials.

Conservation picture framing is a method of framing that uses materials and techniques that are designed to protect and preserve the artwork for as long as possible. This type of framing is often used for valuable or rare artwork, historical documents, and other items that are considered to be of cultural or historical significance.

The main goal of conservation framing is to protect the artwork from environmental factors such as light, humidity, and pollutants. To achieve this, conservation framers use UV-protective glass or acrylic glazing, acid-free matting and backing materials, and archival-quality adhesives and tapes.

The use of acid-free matting and backing materials is important because acid can cause discoloration and deterioration of the artwork over time. UV-protective glazing helps to block harmful ultraviolet rays which can cause fading and discolouration of the artwork.

Conservation framers also pay attention to the mounting and hinging methods used to secure the artwork in the frame. 

In summary, conservation picture framing is a method of framing that uses materials and techniques to protect and preserve the artwork for as long as possible. It is important to use acid-free materials, UV-protective glazing, and proper mounting and hinging methods to ensure the longevity of the artwork.
