What You'll Get
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 Groupon: for $50, you get $125 worth of custom framing or art at Art Source & Design in Shawnee.
Art Source's team of aesthetics experts helps customers showcase and preserve their most precious artwork with an extensive selection of custom frames and an eye for color composition. The staff can lay out an 11"x14" image over an acid-free double mat with a basic black frame with conservation glass, mounting, and backing ($85–$105), rendering resplendent any photo or cherished drawing. Shadowboxes for multidimensional collectibles and a vast array of frames and mats for family portraits help to protect the lives of memorable items while allowing interest on sentimental value to grow exponentially. The knowledgeable employees work with the design ideas and budgetary limitations of each customer to help narrow down the selection while lending their own artistic advice.
While custom projects typically average around $200, the price can go up or down depending on frame materials, glass type, and size. Customers can also adopt original pieces such as a custom figurative, Summoning Surrender, from local artist Eric Martin Schmidt ($1,195, 26”x38”) to reward walls for their diligence at keeping out harsh elements, raccoons, and bellicose lawn gnomes. The 13”x14” framed brooch shadowbox ($249), meanwhile, also garbs humdrum hallways with metallic imitations of organic objects, and a framed fruit-bowl still-life print ($289) resides within a 45”x21” frame to illustrate fanciful impressions of ear-less flora.
