  1. On Friday 30th September and Saturday 1st October, local independent makers Youse and Grey Suit Clay joined forces to showcase their most recent collaborative project with a pop-up exhibition and shop in the APG Gallery.

    Combining their love of visual and functional design, they have come together to produce a very limited edition Desk Tidy set that was launched on the opening night. A brilliant weekend of vintage and handmade stationery, handmade ceramic homeware, new collaborations and all things wonderful for your home and office needs.

  2. Paul Morrison’s distinctive style is instantly recognizable, bold renders of gardens, landscapes and botanicals which can be seen in sculpture, painting and many forms of print. This beautiful linocut we recently framed was created in the Pace Print, N.Y. As a relief technique linocut is very rarely carried out to this scale. The plate took a team of printmakers 3 week to carve and only 30 prints were produced.

  3. It’s always exciting to work with an artist who isn’t afraid to be brave with framing. We created these playful compound frames from the colourful new Frinton Mouldings range. Alternating colour pairs, with the work mounted onto a mid grey acid free mount card. 6mm white spacer to allow space between the artwork and the glass and then GroGlass WW AR.

  4. Street View: Photographs of Urban Life @ Graves Gallery

    ‘The invention of smaller, lighter hand-held cameras in the late 19th century enabled photographers to escape the restrictions of the studio and take their practice onto the street. Ever since, the street has appeared in photographs as both a primary subject and an informative backdrop, contextualising the rest of the scene. This exhibition explores the diversity of the street; as a social space, as a battleground for protest and as a source of artistic inspiration.’

    We had the pleasure of working with Museum Sheffield on framing this exhibition for the Graves Gallery. They have been collecting photographic works since the 1970s and have exhibited a selection of highlights spanning from the ordinary to the extraordinary.

    The framing style was simple and coherent, using museum standard mount cards and photo corners. Below: work in progess.
