If you’ve ever wondered where to begin when framing an original work of art, what in the world is a “float frame”, or why is “museum glass” so expensive, tune in! Mollie and I took some of our favorite Well + Wonder art to Cross Gate Gallery in Lexington, KY for some framing tips from Design Director Linda Helton.
Watch to see an Amanda Norman floral beautifully complimented by stacked high gloss and matt frames, a Connor Heindel abstract on a thick canvas fit seamlessly into a deep float frame, and how a carefully chosen mat adds texture and enhances a work on paper.
Cross Gate Gallery is a Lexington treasure most well-known for an unmatched collection of “Sporting Art” and appropriately founded in a community where horse racing is a way of life. The Framing Department boasts over 3,000 samples and a wide range of pricing options to fit any budget.
We hope this video will give you a greater sense of confidence when making framing decisions, invest once and you will reap the rewards for a lifetime. If you are seeking quality framing establishments like Cross Gate in your area, please reach out!
