The sagacious framers at Borealis Arts design and build museum-quality framework so trustworthy that it has been commissioned to enshrine the works of Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. The shop’s computer-aided mat-cutting method precisely preserves clients’ college diplomas ($120+) or concert posters ($120) autographed by all three members of Alvin and the Chipmunks. Patrons can also mount treasured textiles such as a sports jersey ($300+) or a medal-adorned U.S. Flag ($300+) inside shadowboxes, protecting them from wistful ex-athletes and patriotic bald eagles.
Picasso. Matisse. Grandma. Regardless of the artist, Borealis Arts treats each piece like a priceless heirloom. Its Borealis Arts' continued dedication to the high-quality work that they produce that enables them to celebrate their fifth anniversary in business this month. Though much of the frame shop's handiwork can be found in museums, customers don't need to buy a ticket to get a look at Borealis Arts' resumé. They need only step inside the store to find walls lined in local artwork, including prints made using woodcuts or acrylic engravings. All the artwork is framed, of course, by the staff's preservation experts. The skilled framers use museum-approved techniques and computer-aided mat cutting to protect family portraits, precious artwork, and 3-D items, such as a trophy or the family's ancestral garden gnomes.
