‘Raise Your Glass’ to Toast Our Final Framing Competition

By Maureen O'Connor, Tru Vue® Marketing Manager

Nearly 50 years ago, Tru Vue® pioneered the glazing technologies that raised the bar on the glass and acrylic used in today’s custom picture framing industry.



Ever since then, we’ve been celebrating the art of custom framing, most recently through our annual custom framing competitions. Now, we’re capping it all off with the launch of our final framing competition – “Raise Your Glass” – as we elevate the artists who elevate the art.



For the finale to our framing competitions, we’ve asked Tru Vue All-Stars – a group of winners from past competitions – to submit exceptional pieces of work that exemplify the ethos of what it means to “raise your glass” with Tru Vue products.



Visit the new landing page for the “Raise Your Glass” All-Star competition to see the projects from these framing experts and read the stories behind each. Now, without further ado, here are your Framing All-Stars and their projects:


  • Kosal Eang, Framed By Kosal (Monroe, Conn.), “Passing Time”
