Artist of the Month

Sue Watts

“Whether Covid, personal health, or any other difficulties of 2020, we all have struggled so much this past year. It looks like, with a little bit of luck, we can put this behind us, or at least no longer in front of us!

And, what is more healing and renewing than springtime, the end of the cold, dark of winter and the beginning of sunshine, warmer temps, new life and green?

Flowers and birds, baby, that’s all I need!

Custom Framing Considerations

So, now that you’ve chosen the perfect piece of art, it’s time to choose a custom frame to match. You could go sleek and modern or playful with color. However, a simple wood frame will never go out of style. There are several simple things to consider:

  1. The color of the wood. Usually a light wood goes best with light colored artwork and a dark frame with dark colored art.
  2. The composition of the art. If it is very busy keep the frame simple.The frame should compliment the artwork, not compete for attention.
  3. The subject matter if about nature is best suited with a natureinspired frame showing the wood grain.
  4. The depth of the frame is important especially when framing art on canvas. You need the frame to cover the edges. A float frame is a good choice.
  5. The home should be considered when framing. Where will this art be living? Is your home or that of the recipient sleek and minimalist? Or, is it more bohemian?

Each of the above things need to be considered when framing. Visit Gallery 510 Art & Framing with your artwork for help in selecting just the right frame. We frame all sizes from 5×5 inches to 5×5 feet. Whether you need something ornate or very simple, Gallery 510 Art & Framing can fill your needs. You’ll get quality, professionalism and service.
