Until their proper display in museums, the paintings of most Renaissance masters languished for centuries on the magnet-flecked fridges of their proud mothers. Preserve your art for future generations and houseguests with today's deal: for $50, you get $100 toward a complete custom-framing job at Blick Art Materials in downtown Portland.
Blick Art Materials adds the custom-framed finishing touch needed to give artwork an extra flair and a cozy home. Expert framers craft every picture trap right in the shop and help customers choose from more than 5,000 frame styles, shadowboxes, and specialized mats that turn paintings, photographs, and posters into well-preserved eye-catchers.
Bring in your 11"x14" painting and get it wrapped in style with a 1 1/8" wood frame, conservation clear glass, archival cotton mat, and a museum mounting ($85), or do the same for a 16"x20" collage of friends with mall bangs ($105). Art showcasers can double the matting on the 16"x20" for a rich look ($129), show off a 24"x36" watercolor ($210), or bring in an assortment of pocket-dwelling objects to have them arranged in a custom shadow box.
