After a healthy discussion at our quarterly meeting this past Saturday, we have come to a decision about framing for the show planned at Chapman University on drought tolerant plants.

Dick Blick Bamboo Gallery Frames

The frame we will be using for our Chapman exhibit is the Dick Blick Light Bamboo Gallery frame.  Most paintings done on quarter sheets will fit into the 16 x 20 size frame.

If you purchase a pre-cut 16″ x 20″ mat, your matted painting should fit into #18858-7916 bamboo frame. That frame comes with acrylic “glass” and costs $27.50.

The light bamboo frame comes in a range of sizes, from 6″ x 6″ to 30″ x 40″. You may want to decide the final size of your painting when you are planning the composition.

Use the standard wire and D ring hanging system with no saw-tooth or projecting hardware, and a white or off-white mat.

We do not have an exact date set as yet for the show. However, we believe the gallery area will be available to us sometime in early spring, and that we will have room for three to four paintings per member. So, keep working on those paintings! We are hoping to hold several workshops on issues pertinent to portraying drought tolerant plants.
