Both a framed work of art and a finicky antique cannon add a lot of personality to a living room at the simple expense of a few holes in the wall. Maximize aesthetics while minimizing structural damage with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get $100 worth of custom framing at Koyman Galleries.
For more than 45 years, Koyman Galleries’ custom-framing team has corralled fine art, photos, diplomas, and other keepsakes within the confines of custom-made frames. The subjects of 8”x10” ($60), 11”x14” ($95), or 16”x20” ($110) family portraits beam proudly from inside a sturdy wood frame and enjoy protection from the sun's moustache doodles with an upgrade to nonglare glass ($77+). Premium frames ($119+) treat art pieces to meticulously applied matting and enlarge dimensions up to 22”x26”. Art consultants stand by to offer framing suggestions and spot-on impressions of the Mona Lisa smile.
After entrusting precious keepsakes to framing experts, patrons can peruse a 13,000-square-foot gallery that spans two floors. The sparse, New York–loft-style space displays more than 5,000 works and rotating exhibitions by contemporary Canadian painters and photographers.
