Frame Restoration and Repair
What is Archival Framing?
Acids from the wood pulp found in the boards and backing of some framing materials will burn and degrade artwork. Art on paper is most vulnerable to damage caused by antiquated or improper framing techniques. Archival or conservation framing is a museum-quality presentation that only uses materials that protect the artwork:
1. Acid-free mat boards, backing and barrier paper are made with 100% Rag (cotton) fibre, which will not burn or discolour prints, watercolours and drawings.
2. Museum glass with a super-clear coating to filter out harmful UV rays which cause fading/burning in the artwork on paper, as well as photographs.
3. Museum-quality tape and hinges, to hold artwork firmly and safely in place.
Our craftspeople have extensive experience creating replica frames that match the style and era from when the work was originally produced. We build frames for many important Canadian artists such as Maud Lewis, William Kurelek and Joe Norris. Contact us to discuss your needs and let us help you achieve the presentation you desire.
