American Frame: Fundraising in frame

What’s a work of art worth without a good frame? We’re not interested in finding out. Fortunately, American Frame is helping locals, including students at the Toledo School for the Arts, find out the worth of a good frame with a pop-up showroom at TSA throughout March.

American Frame employees have set up a temporary showroom in the Martin D. Porter Gallery (333 14th St.) to illustrate and explain the basics of DIY custom framing, the anatomy of framing treatment, and why professional framing is important. The pop-up will also offer services and products, including DIY framing kits, frame design consultation and custom artwork framing. A portion of all sales will go to the Toledo School for the Arts.

The public is invited to stop by the pop-up showroom from 1-4pm, Mondays-Wednesdays and Fridays, and 1-7:30pm on Thursdays, from March 1st through March 28th. A fundraising event will be held from 5-8pm on Thursday, March 21st.

Also during March, visit the American Frame Showroom (400 Tomahawk Dr., Maumee) to see two other exhibitions.

Work by artists from Unruly Arts, a professional studio that provides art materials, instruction, and skill-building to adults with disabilities, will be on view through March 25th, with a free opening reception from 5:30-7pm on Thursday, March 14.

Poet, musician, artist, and Toledo School for the Arts teacher Lydia Horvath will showcase her watercolor works, prints, and more, through March 25th, with a free closing reception held from 5:30-7pm on Friday, March 25.
