It is through art and art only that we can realize our perfection, and it's 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 $55, you get $150 worth of custom framing and restoration at The Frame Gallery in Brookline.
Named Best Framer by Boston magazine in 2005, The Frame Gallery entraps wily art objects in a plethora of aesthetically pleasing prisons. A simple wood or metal frame might flatter a dachshund's first doodle ($12+/ft.), and a more ornate gold leaf or carved wood moulding cradles his astrophysics doctorate from Oxford ($400+/ft.). Plus, a slew of silicate shields, from Plexiglas to museum-quality glass can defend objets d'arte from spitballs ($50–$100) once they've been cosseted in acid-free paper or silk mats ($50–$100). The Frame Gallery's canvas whisperers can also restore vintage frames or faded artworks ($100/hour).
The Frame Gallery counts the Museum of Fine Arts and Harvard's Fogg Art Museum among its clients, so canvases can be sure to recieve top-notch treatment. After frame-ups, artfully attired masterworks will return home to walls and mantelpieces around the city, where they can show off their flashy glass garments to crowds of jealous windowpanes.
