Painting award

By John MacLean, 25/08/18:

 

Congratulations to artist Eilidh Smith, whose artwork ‘Ready for a Ceilidh’ won the Daler Rowney Award in the artist category at this year’s exhibition at Nottinghamshire’s Patchings Art Centre.

I had the pleasure of framing this large artwork prior to its departure for exhibition: the painting was set into a deep rebate wood frame with a narrow spacer between the painting and the glass. The frame moulding was primed then painted with six coats of paint mixed exactly to complement the blue-grey tones in parts of the artwork.

I specialise in making frames to customers’ individual requirements: excellent art should have excellent presentation. Wherever possible, frame mouldings used are approved by the Forest Stewardship Council, which certifies woods sourced from responsibly-managed forests.

Please get in touch if you have artwork you want framed to the highest standard, whether it’s for exhibition, for your own walls or for giving as a gift.

Framing of paintings

Another completed bespoke framing, this time of a fine study of nesting gannets on Boreray, St. Kilda by island artist Elaine Murray.

The painting was mounted behind archival quality antique white board in a white-painted/limewaxed wood frame.

An interesting and timely project today, reframing sets of medals from both World Wars.

The Second World War set includes the Arctic Star campaign medal, which only began to be presented to veterans in 2013.
