Down To Earth Art has been a leader in distinctive, creative, quality custom picture framing since 1996. We have custom framed thousands of pieces and like to say that we can frame anything; from your smallest treasures, to our largest custom framing of an 8 feet x 4 feet original painting, that we also stretched to ready the art for framing, (we then packed and shipped it to the other side of the Country).
Down To Earth Art Gallery offers a wide selection of over 100 colours of acid-free archival mats, cottons, suedes, silks, and other fabrics in stock at all times. If, in the rare occasion, we don’t have one in these 100 that works perfectly, then there 100’s of other mats to choose from that can be ordered in. Our mats will never fade and will never damage your special project, they truly are the very best mats available.
We use 99% UV light blocking glass, but also sell a lot of Museum Glass these days, which has the 99% UV protection, but also has 95% clarity. It is a beautiful glass, near perfect viewing with no light or images reflecting, it’s hard to even tell that there is glass on the work at all.
Our picture mouldings are all wood, we don’t use any foam or plastic frame mouldings. We stay up-to-date on the latest mouldings, but also hang onto some of the classics that we’ve had since we started. We order in our picture mouldings in 10 or 12 foot lengths, each frame is cut to the exact custom size for your piece, giving you options for the finished size. All work is performed on site in our framing studio, we never send anything out to be done by a third party, meaning we consistently can ensure the top quality that our customers expect from us, and that we have always guaranteed forever.
We frame original acrylics, oils, watercolours, pastels, stitchery and needlework, jerseys and sports memorabilia, fabric art, war medals, coins, stained glass, dad’s or grandfather’s tools, knives, smoking pipe, Mother’s or grandmother’s recipes, aprons, jewelry, trophies and ribbons, concert tickets and special vacation mementos, shark jaw, christening gowns and baby items, antique family photos, walking sticks, and the list goes on and on. Check out a few of our photos and excuse the bad photography, they might give you some ideas for a way to mark a special occasion.
