When a customer brought a print of Dolan Geiman’s “Dream Talker” into Frame De Art’s shop in suburban Denver, owner and framer Brian Hart knew this would be no ordinary project.
After all, Geiman – who works just blocks from Brian in Englewood, Colorado – is one of the most well-known artists in the area, with work featured in local festivals and national shows alike.
This customer – a referral from Geiman himself – asked Brian for framing that would complement the unique nature of the print while protecting it from damage. Most importantly, though, the customer specified that the image should be as clear as possible to avoid obscuring Geiman’s detailed work.
Wanting something different than a conventional wood frame, the customer worked closely with Brian to select a more unusual one from Bella Moulding’s Prisma line. Opting for a frame with subtle linear elements that contrasted and accentuated Geiman’s organic forms, Brian then set out to identify a protective glass delivering the clarity his customer craved.
Elevating the art
To glaze the project, Brian chose Tru Vue Museum Glass®. In addition to protecting the piece from 99% of harmful UV rays, Museum Glass also features an anti-reflective coating that preserves detail by reducing the glass’s visibility in the frame.
“The colors on Dolan’s pieces are so bright; we didn’t want anything to take away from all the details,” Brian said. “Tru Vue Museum Glass ensured that our customer got the best protection available without losing clarity.”
With Frame De Art’s custom frame job and Museum Glass, the customer received a protected, professionally framed work preserving Geiman’s vibrant colors and details – which made for quite the thrill.
“Our customer was literally screaming with happiness when they saw the way it turned out,” Brian said. “We love it when the customer is so happy – it’s a great feeling!”
