What You'll Get
Pictures propped against walls, crammed in closets, or carried away by picture-thieving magpies can't be beheld. Today’s Groupon increases art visibility: for $49, you get $100 worth of art and framing services at Ocala Art and Frame.
With more than 40 years of experience creating custom mounts, Ocala Art and Frame's experts preserve and showcase meaningful memorabilia without boxing in creativity. The expansive showroom and workshop houses one of Marion County's largest moulding selections as well as an array of precut and hand-carved archival mats, all eagerly waiting to protectively embrace fragile ephemera. Dexterous fingers will carefully measure any object for conventional commemoration or shadowboxing, whether it be a treasured family photo, a high-school diploma, an autographed baseball, or kitty's first Christmas sweater. After conscientious collectors wander the garden of gilded wood and brushed metal mouldings ($3–$15/ft.), they'll select glazing, choosing from options such as museum glass for professional clarity, UV protective to prevent fading, or dark chocolate to match the living room's nougat-covered light fixtures. Rates vary based on a work's dimensions, as well as the type of mat, frame, and glass selected, but $100 usually yields a nicely framed 16"x20" piece, matted, and protected with glass.
For art lovers looking to bolster bored bare walls, a company of more than 10,000 lithographs, signed prints, and posters leaps at the chance for adoption, many of them already housetrained and outfitted in glass and timber. The varied collection offers something for every art taste, ranging from the timeless prints of Norman Rockwell and the impressionistic paintings of Claude Monet, to the romantic shadows present in Leonardo da Vinci's lesser-known velvet works.

About Ocala Art and Frame
The experts at Ocala Art and Frame believe in the beauty of choice. They invite their customers to choose from more than 1,000 frame styles and dozens of mat textures and colors. Browsers can ask the staff’s board-certified framer to help determine if a needlework masterpiece should be outfitted with a mahogany, oak, or pine outline or if a watercolor should be safely ensconced behind UV-protective glass or a clear Jello mold. Those looking to purchase pieces to decorate their walls can peruse the gallery of more than 10,000 prints, lithographs, and posters, as well as original sculptures. The selection of artwork focuses on equine subjects because of Ocala's designation as the Horse Capital of the World.
