Reading last months issue of Artists & Illustrators magazine, I really liked the article about framing works together. (March 2013 issue - page 52- 53)
These are postcard sized paintings by Jayne Stokes which she has framed together as a collection.
Then, blow me down, the same week - on a weekend trip to Hastings, we spotted this framed work by Alvaro Petritoli in the window of the First Sight Gallery (in the Old Town) this time the works looked to be roughly ATC/ACEO size.
|Oh how I would love to own this!|
It got me to thinking - wouldn't this be a great way to display all those gorgeous pieces of mail art we collect? Or the ATC/ACEO's we swap or buy? Most of mine are filed away in folders until I can get individual frames for them, meaning the majority never get displayed. I'm worried they'll be ruined if I just bluetack or pin them up.
What do you think - do you do this already? How do you display your collected smaller artworks? Funny isn't it how you see variations of things at the same time.
Thanks for stopping by today :)
