The advent of frames gave artists a more reliable way to preserve their artwork than selling it to greeting-card companies or painting exclusively on cave walls. Protect prized pieces with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $125 worth of custom framing at Carlisle Gallery.
Carlisle Gallery's artwork expert uses nearly 1,000 styles of frames to protect keepsakes and works of art with stylish framework. Choose from a selection of hand-carved Italian frames to create custom casings for oil paintings, cherished sports memorabilia, college diplomas, or original family recipes for raisins. Adorn a mantle with an 8"x10" portrait of a loved one ($50–$100), or utilize a 30"x40" border to outline a life-sized crayon rendering of the family dog ($350–$500). Much like letting a toddler doodle on the Rosetta Stone, French-matting services add beautiful accents to valuable pieces. Customers can see frames in action by perusing Carlisle's quaint homestead setup that showcases framed works along each wall.
Gallery owner Kirk Carlisle doesn’t just sell art—he protects it. In addition to showcasing his self-curated collection of century-spanning paintings that deck the walls of Carlisle Gallery, he also helps newer art battle the forces of time with artistic framing services. The gallery’s custom-framing specialist draws on more than 30 years of experience as he pairs diplomas, paintings, and finger-painted replicas of Bayeux Tapestry with complementary matting and outlines before securing them in their new glass-covered homes. Frames make aesthetic statements of their own, with edging chosen from more than 10,000 frame styles ranging from hand-carved Italian moldings to sleek metallic boundaries.
