1:30 to 3:30 pm

Displaying your art in shows or galleries is an important and satisfying step in the career of any artist. A professional presentation of your work is essential in this pursuit.

If you have questions about how to frame your two-dimensional creations and the materials required to make them look their very best, please join us for a two-hour workshop on the basics of framing. We will demonstrate different methods applicable to several mediums. Consider bringing in a piece of your own artwork so we can discuss the process and suggest what mounting system you might use.

We will present examples of our own art and show the framing steps involved, including how to finish off the back and hardware required for hanging, along with methods on how to preserve the work and keep it looking great for years to come.

A handout with a list of materials and resources will be provided.
