Choosing a frame at Lindsell Art Gallery
At Lindsell Art Gallery we are custom picture framers and the work is carried out in our own workshop. With over 30 years framing experience and customers coming from as far afield as Cambridge and Brentwood, Chelmsford and Hitchin we can confidently claim to be the best in the area (probably!). And, of course, the offer of coffee and a browse in the gallery are all part of the experience.
The framing workshop leads off the gallery and our excellent framer Hayley, who has been with us for more than six years, frames paintings, prints, needlework, photos, football shirts; she stretches and frames canvasses and does whatever else our customers bring along – and she does it all beautifully.
Our prices are competitive, all our glazed framing is sealed against insects and the work is usually ready in a week. Currently there is 10% OFF off all framing (as long as the work is collected within two weeks of the agreed gate and paid for by card or in cash, not by cheque).
A LITTLE HISTORY
In the early 1980s botanical artist Judy Garrett (gallery partner with her husband John) could not get her own paintings framed satisfactorily. Leave it to us, they said, we'll do you a good job. And they didn't. So she started to frame her own pictures. Fellow artists came to her for their framing and she displayed a few of their paintings – and so, in 1992, began Lindsell Art Gallery.
