Art collectors protect their pictures the same way crime bosses discipline their children—by having them framed. Guard your pictures before they take a fall with today's Groupon: for $39, you get $100 worth of art or framing services at Ocala Art and Frame.
Ocala Art and Frame’s accommodating staff, which has more than 40 years of experience and includes a board certified framer in its ranks, fortifies flat and three-dimensional works of art with pre-made or custom built frames and mats available in a multitude of colors and textures. Visitors can weave their way through the shop’s garden of gilded wood and brush metal moldings in search of their favorite framing style, which will valiantly protect family photos, prized paintings, and record breaking speeding tickets. Though pricing varies greatly based on materials, a 16”x20” frame with one-inch wood molding, a mat, and glass can be completed for as little as $50, while the same sized project with museum quality glass and conservation mounting starts at about $125. Those without their own pictures to hang can sift through Ocala Art and Frame’s collection of numbered and signed artwork, including prints, lithographs, and posters that lure eyes with fetching designs and can cover up holes in walls from full-contact shadowboxing.

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.
