Preservation and Creativity - The top 2 criteria when choosing your custom picture framer

by Joseph Amram
PRESERVATION - Using the newest materials and framing techniques ensures the long term safety of your most sensitive works of art. CITYFRAMES exclusively uses conservation-grade materials, such as UV-protectant (clear and non-reflective) glass and plexiglass, acid-free mat boards, and conservation mounting supplies. CITYFRAMES never compromises the preservation of your art to save you a few dollars; it is a choice that has irreversible negative consequences.

CREATIVITY - Great custom framing enhances the art and embellishes the decor in which it is displayed. Great framing design endures and does not follow a style fad. The preservation of your art pieces should not be compromised by the creativity of the framer. Creativity in framing has to be considerate of a particular client's style preferences and improved on with the knowledge and experience of the framer. Every project should be treated uniquely and designed for generations. That is why CITYFRAMES specializes in timeless, classic, elegant designs.
IN CONCLUSION - Your custom framing design can add beauty and protect a special work of art. You know that you are in good hands when your framer educates you on the newest preservation materials and framing techniques, and when the appropriate attention is paid to your art and your personal style.

CITYFRAMES Art Space: New Works by Artist-Writer Thordis Niela Simonsen

The redesigned CITYFRAMES Art Space opened on July 14th with the showing of new works by Thordis Niela Simonsen. The show features a series of brightly colored and energetic monotypes that we beautifully framed with natural walnut. Monotypes are one-of-a-kind prints on paper. The artwork is created by painting directly on a plate and transfered onto paper via a manual press.

On July 14, the opening event included a conversation with Niela and short readings from her new book Dances in Two Worlds. Niela talked about her inspiration from her childhood, the Wyoming landscapes and skies, as well as about the development of her artistic process.

I thank the people who attended this event. It was a great opportunity to unveil a redesigned CITYFRAMES Art Space. I invite you to check it out!

An other event will take place in the second part of August. Sign up for email notifications!

Show will run until August 31, Monday through Friday, from 9AM to 5PM. The Mansion closes at 5:30PM. For off-schedule viewing appointments, please call me at 303.249.3333
