If you need a gift for a happy event coming up, why not create or find something special and have it framed?
Put on your thinking cap of what might delight: a photo of a former home, a souvenir from a wonderful vacation, a funny but meaningful cartoon, an ancient photo of grandparents, a photo of children or grandchildren in a sporting activity, or of course, a work of art. Objects can also be put into deep frames called shadow boxes.
From June 1 – July 31, get 25% off custom framing by Omega Moldings, plus get another 5% off when either Sandra Phillips, or Smart Shopping Montreal are mentioned.
If you’re really a last minute person, at Galerie d’Art Pointe Claire, if you bring in your art in the morning, it can be ready by the end of the day. All work is done on the premises – nothing sent out.
Since 1983, Galerie d’Art Pointe Claire besides framing paintings, prints, diplomas and needlepoint, can frame coins, medals, awards, sports items, religious objects, souvenirs, keepsakes, family heirlooms or hockey shirts, in shadow boxes.
Mats in popular sizes are stocked, and custom framing is done at reasonable prices. Over 200 ready-made frames are in stock. The frames are from companies such as: Larson Juhl, Roma, Verbec and Omega Molding Co. and there are 2,000 samples to choose from so for sure there will be something to match the art you are framing.
The other half of the store is mainly art supplies (lots of how-to books); there are special deals (40% off) on stretch canvas all year long. Paints you can buy here are: Liquitex Acryliques, Lukas oil colors, Holbein oils and watercolors, and Winsor & Newton artist’s watercolor and oil colors.
Just don’t forget to mention me, Sandra Phillips, or Smart Shopping Montreal to get even more off.
