Thornebrook Gallery - North Florida's premier art gallery and custom picture framing establishment.
How you frame your artwork is extremely important. The frame around your art has a few functions. First it makes it possible to hang your art on the wall and it adds a finishing touch, but most important, it enhances the artwork and makes your picture pop.
There are a few things to consider when you're framing a picture:
What color are the walls where you want to hang your framed artwork? When choosing a mat and frame you'll want to consider the colors already in the room where you're going to hang it, so the finished piece will look like it belongs in the room.
Does it need matting? Matting is an important part of framing, it's not always a needed element, but some pieces must have matting. If you don't know for sure, you definitely want to talk to a professional.
What color in the picture do you want to highlight? Choosing the best mat color for your artwork is just as important as the frame you choose. How you present your art or picture is a personal preference, but you'll also want to consider the colors already in the room.
Choosing the frame... Style, texture & color are all important to consider when selecting a frame. By subtling repeating colors and textures in the picture (not too much), you'll enhance the artwork with a custom finishing touch.
What kind of glass or glazing do you want? Did you know there are several different types of glass? Each type of glass has specific qualities, most of which are only available for custom framing where conservation or anti-reflective coatings are important to preserve your photos or artworks.
