Art, Storytelling & Framing with Hannah White & Patricia Gustafson

May 10 - demo BannerFriday Night Demo: Art, Storytelling and Framing with Hannah White & Patricia Gustafson

There are lots of different considerations when looking at picture framing. Presentation is everything. Picture framing serves several purposes, one of which is help tell the story you have created in your hard work.

This seminar helps to explain the ins and outs of choosing the perfect frame for your artwork.

We look at loads of samples of framed artworks from our collection, frames, mats and other components with tips on techniques and styling, and aesthetic presentation components. Artists are welcome to bring a piece to this workshop for discussion of their particular framing problem solution.

Patricia Gustafson and Hannah White are owners of Framed on Fifth which opened in 2011.

Their specialized picture framing shop is located in eclectic Kensington featuring unique original conservation framing for artists, collectors and art lovers.   A frame shop? Yes, also a charming gallery presenting new local artists each month.

Both gallery owners Hannah and Patricia are artists as well. With over 20 years of framing experience, Hannah brings a framing background that has included experience in custom frame studios as well as working in design, marketing, and sales for a large picture framing manufacturer.
