 Artists in the Countryside

Artists gather every June for an annual fundraiser in the small village of Newton Purcell to raise money for the beautiful church of St Michaels and All Angels. The event begins with the now famous Asparagus BBQ courtesy of Elms Farm and the Markham family who have organised this event for the past 4 years. The old school hall, now the village hall, hosts a select collection of great local artists and their works of art that promises to be a real jewel in this years event calendar. During the weekend there's morning coffee and afternoon tea, lovingly produced by the villagers for visitors to enjoy whilst they browse the paintings, cards and works of art.

From the first look, it is clear how much time, concentration and patience goes into these creations. So, putting as much or more effort into stretching, mounting and framing is paramount.

In this blog, you will learn some top tips about the processes and techniques that ensure the artwork is protected from dust, moisture and harmful UV rays, whilst also displaying in an attractive frame and mount – allowing the designs to be seen at their best.

FATG Enhanced LogoWhat are the Five Levels of Framing? 

These are set out in the UK by the Fine Art Trade Guild and act as a framework and a set of guidelines for choosing the appropriate materials and methods suitable for framing your items.

When having something framed it is worth thinking about the standard you want the item framed to. This may not have crossed your mind, but there is a wide range of framing material available to the bespoke framer and it is our job to select the correct material for the job. While nobody is compelled to use these guidelines It does make sense for us to use them as reference when considering having something framed.
