Merle Forde gave us an interesting and informative presentation on framing and frames. She asked us why we frame our paintings; the reason is to complete the picture. She suggested using a few standard shaped canvasses so that frames could be recycled to keep expenses down. She said that one should not notice the mount board as it is there to enhance the work. Don't use a bright white mount board if there is no bright white in the picture.She also told us that only conservation mount boards are free from acid. She showed many photos of frames and mounts to illustrate her talk.
The evening ended with prizes for lucky ticket holders.
