The Difference is Design

Cutting mats, driving nails, using wheat paste and having friends are all good things.  But the telling difference and most important feature in a frame shop is good design.  To make the picture float forward while the frame melts into the background is the elusive goal of every framer worth his salt.

James Wood’s background is mostly centered in New York City.  He has been framing for 30 years, with 15 of those in gallery frameshops.  James has spent 10 years in trade-only frameshops, working for MOMA, the Whitney and Metropolitan Museums, and many other 5th Avenue galleries.

His shows include Richard Avedon’s 50th year retrospective at the Whitney, and the first-ever retrospective photography show at the Metropolitan Museum, “Looking Back”.
