Artist of the Month


We invite you to visit Gallery 510 Art & Framing in October to see watercolor paintings by Rae Nell Spencer.

My show is named for its variety of paintings. Some are from photographs of places I have been: Michigan, Arizona, and my own yard in Illinois.Others, the abstracts, I enjoy creating from my imagination. I mainly use Yupo paper for my abstracts because the colors appear brighter and flow easier.”

Student Artist of the Month


Bailey Williams from Warrensburg Latham High School represents her school in the month of October. Bailey graduated in May 2020 and is currently planning to continue her studies in art.

“My artwork is something I use to speak without speaking and show who I am and what my interests/views are. I’m very much into makeup, painting and drawing. I want to use my creativity for the rest of my life.”

Bailey created the piece she entered for the gallery on an iPad pro and used an apple pen on the app Procreate. Her work will be on display all month.

Stacking Frames

Pastel artists all know that their work must be under glass and the glass must not touch the art. If you choose not to use mats on your pastel then a separation needs to be created in another way. One way is to stack frames. Choose a narrow frame to go next to the artwork to separate the art from the glass then stack another frame on top to hold the glass in place. It’s a beautiful way to frame a pastel painting.In addition to using an actual frame to separate the painting from the glass, an attractive fillet can be used, too. This alleviates the need for a deeper outer frame. A fillet is a slim piece of wood usually used to enhance a frame or placed between the art and the mat. Stacking frames can be used for other works, too. A narrow frame with beading or in gold or another color can be used inside a deeper frame to enhance it. Create your own look to suit your style.
