It is through art and art only that we can realize our perfection, through frames and frames only that we can shield our art from the sordid perils of actual existence. Today's Groupon frames and supplies your art in fine form: for $45, you get $100 worth of custom framing from Prairiebrooke Arts at either of its two locations in Overland Park.
Prairiebrooke Arts has been hanging exquisitely on the Kansas City area's wall since 1990. Its highly skilled staff draws from many years of experience to craft custom frames in a 2,500-square-foot workspace, one of the largest frame shops in the state. With today's Groupon, frame any image of your choice up to a size of 17x20, or have multiple smaller items (3x5, 5x7, 8.5x11) framed for a total value of $100. The exact price of your frame will vary depending on your individual material selections. Both locations offer a wide variety of mat and frame choices with which to elegantly present your original lithograph of Dogs Playing Beer Pong. All images are put on acid-free mounting and covered by museum-quality glass, in addition to the frame itself. Prairiebrooke's trained art consultant will help you select the choicest frame design for whatever you're looking to frame, be it a painting, wedding photo, diploma, or neighbor for a crime he did not commit.
Displaying an exquisite painting without a decent frame is like break-dancing without pants on: the art is lost to the awfulness of the display. Diego Velásquez's complex, enigmatic exploration of perspectives in 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. Today's Groupon to Prairiebrooke Arts helps you avoid such lapses in judgment—earning your wall decoration the right kind of astonished stares.
Pairing works by local artists with museum-quality framing, Prairiebrooke Arts is both a gallery and preservation studio. Canvases, sculptures, and intricately blown glass dot the studio's walls and tables, representing handsome finished works available for sale. To help decorate homes and businesses, the gallery's staff performs on-site artistic consultations wherein they discuss with clients which piece would best complement a room's color scheme or its resident stack of old magazines.
An equally discerning eye is cast on each of Prairiebrooke Arts' framing projects. Fine art consultants offer their ideas for how to best frame a photo or piece of art, whether employing gold leaf, French details, or museum-grade preservation materials. Their talents also extend into three-dimensional pieces, which stand inside shadow boxes that display objects such as colorful fishing lures and baby shoes.
