What You'll Get
Pictures propped against walls, crammed in closets, or framed with picture-thieving magpies can't be beheld. Today’s Groupon increases art visibility with quality frames that take the art of hanging art beyond such jejune measures as tacky industrial-strength sticky tack, staple-tape taple staping, and hiring long-armed men to hold your art against the wall. For $30, you get $70 worth of custom framing at Nielsen Framing Studio and Gallery in Linden Hills. This Groupon is valid for custom framing of one picture, and two Groupons may be combined for one order.
Specializing in custom framing of fine art, mirrors, memorable keepsakes, and artistically positioned banana peels, Nielsen Framing adds an aesthetically pleasing pizzazz to valuables. Experienced craftsmen draw on a wide selection of finely wrought frames to lasso, break in, saddle, and preserve striking paintings and grandma-impressing graduation certificates. Prices vary according to materials and size, but customers can opt for offerings such as a 8”x10” plain black frame with glass and 2” matting ($147), or an 11”x14” olive-veneer black frame with glass and 2” matting ($327). Best of all, this deal makes for a thoughtful Mother’s Day present by ensuring handsome housing for noteworthy digital daguerrotypes or impressive report cards.
Displaying an exquisite painting without a decent frame is like breakdancing without pants on: the art is lost to the awfulness of the display. Diego Velásquez's complex and enigmatic Las Meninas went unnoticed for centuries because its frame was tastelessly adorned with scimitars, semi-precious gems, and a chrome skull that fired lasers from its eyes at anyone who got too close. Avoid a similar fate for your artwork and cherished memories with today’s Groupon to Nielsen Framing Studio and Gallery.
