Wowsah! Next on our tour, Jarvis Hall Fine Art! I love this space! I like Jarvis Hall and his vision, philosophy and dedication to both fine art and to the craft of exquisite fine art framing. Jarvis and Shannon Williamson were both so generous with their time and really welcomed us on a pretty busy day, given that there was an opening that afternoon for Marianne Gerlinger. It was very exciting to be able to preview Marianne’s work and to enter into some art talk about the images, techniques and to wander about at a leisurely pace.
This image has been collected directly from the Jarvis Hall website and so credit is given to them for the photograph. One of my favourites.
I was really intrigued by the description of techniques used in some fine arts frames and to learn that there are some historical methods that continue to be practiced, but by very few crafts people in the contemporary world. This is something I’d like to explore more. New insights into things are so exciting. While I DID take notes on this process, I think that this site seems to describe it more clearly…with the addition of carving as one of the steps to the completed profile. I also would like to apologize for the quality of this photograph, but want to include it here as a part of what I will always remember as being so absolutely beautiful.
