Fantastic Framing

Framing artwork whether it be a simple poster or an original master, can make the difference between something looking ordinary/ invisible or absolutely fantastic.

Artistry Gallery and Picture Framing owner, Sarah Pye comments, “I’m not talking about the framing overpowering the artwork, as in my view it should never be about the frame, it should always be about the image. However, once you take something albeit a simple poster and put it into a clean white mount and contemporary black or white inexpensive frame you will find it lifts the simple poster into a beautiful, stand out piece of  ‘Art’.  The same applies if you have an original painting that you perhaps bought unframed and you find it really isn’t ever noticed on your wall or doesn’t look as wonderful as you thought it did when you originally bought it, or perhaps it’s in a really hideous frame that doesn’t go with anything especially the painting! Selecting a new frame with perhaps a little help and advice from a specialist framer can really take the piece to a whole new level. Your invisible painting can suddenly become the feature in your room that you had always hoped it would be.”

Kevin the master framer at Artistry can literally frame anything you might choose to hang on your wall, or can help you choose a suitable frame for perhaps something that’s been lying around for years unnoticed.

They have frames from the simplest modern black/white/natural wood etc to a range of more elaborate frames from driftwood style, contemporary float/tray frames and ornate carved or even hand painted in your favourite Farrow & Ball colour.

Kevin has framed many things over the years from shoes to golf clubs, flags, socks, signed sports shirts and many other items not to mention classical artwork and just a simple certificates and posters. For all your framing needs, he will be happy to help you with ideas, and practical advice. Artistry also offer a complimentary collection and delivery service for extra large work.

Kevin’s number to discuss a potential framing job is 07950 737982, but the best thing is always to pop in to the shop on Reading Road (opposite the Christ Church Centre) on an afternoon and bring your art work with you. This way he can give you advice and a price while you’re there. The gallery/framing is open 10am-5pm Tuesday to Saturday.
