Like flocks of sheep, works of art must be penned up or they'll invade neighboring pastures to graze on leftover pastels and oil paint discarded by landscape artists. Contain a canvas in a stylish frame-fence with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $110 worth of custom framing at Jackson Junge Gallery.
Jackson Junge Gallery dresses objets d'art in a wide-ranging wardrobe of mouldings and mounts. At the store, customers can touch and test frames or solicit expert advice on the aesthetically pleasing display of preschool-completion certificates. In the gallery section of the store, patrons can find canvas fillers for frames and admire artwork by proprietor and in-house artist Laura Lee Junge, as well as by other local artists. Though custom-framing costs can vary, a small frame with mat usually runs between $50 and $125, and a poster without a mat costs around $60. Framing for a sports jersey with your choice of background color or scene-stealing foreground color starts at $225.
