I’m Steve and I’m the new Business Manager here at Art on 5th. I’ve just come all the way from London England to Austin and have to say that so far I’m pretty impressed with what I’ve seen. Not only do you have amazing food, vibrant nightlife and an amazing music scene, you’ve got a killer custom frame shop right here at Art on 5th.
Coming from a gallery background in London I thought I’d seen it all but I’ve seriously seen nothing like the setup here. I was totally blown away by the huge frame selection and the numerous mounting options on offer. Most of all I was impressed with the expert advice offered by Mary and Haley. They have this amazing way of finding something sympathetic to the piece and guiding you through the numerous samples once you’ve given them an idea of what you have in mind. They can bring a piece to life and add anything from a subtle understated frame and mount that won’t overshadow the artwork to something big and bold that will hold its own on any wall in any setting. It became obvious to me that I’ve got a lot to learn about framing; it’s a true skill and something that I truly believe the folks here at Art on 5th have mastered.
It’s surprising how a subtle difference in the thickness or height of a frame molding can totally change the feel of a piece. Everyone here understands how framing works and they work hard to help you make the right choice for your artwork whether it be a painting, a photograph, a diploma or family heirloom. I’ve seen everything from flat art to 3 dimensional pieces framed since I’ve been here.
Did I mention the Art Glass yet..???
You won’t believe your eyes..!
