Health check-ups for your art

Time flies and the summer is disappearing fast. Does any of your art and frames require attention?

Some of the artwork you bought years ago may not have been framed with conservation-quality materials and may be showing signs of fading and/or discoloration from acid-migration.
Perhaps some of your mounts and frames looked great in the 1980’s, but now royal blue and grey aren’t as popular as they once were.

Some things to consider:

· Bring your art that you love to the workshop, if it needs a little help – mounts faded or discoloured, frame marked or out-dated, or that just needs freshening up.

· Dig out that picture you got in Barcelona on your city break from under the bed and get it framed and up on your wall. You can’t enjoy it if it’s not up.

· If you are not sure that your framed artwork was conservation framed, bring it in for me to evaluate.

· If you have artwork many years ago and it no longer suits your tastes or environment, maybe you should search for a new picture that you love today.

· If you need help with displaying your art for maximum enjoyment, call me for help – I offer framing assessments at your home or office, to help you get the correct picture, framed correctly in the environment where it will be displayed.

So, you don’t have to have it all figured out. I am happy to perform a no-obligation evaluation of your art to determine what it needs.

After all: Life is too short to live with bad art!
