Matting & Framing

art, exhibition, photography

A few weeks ago I broke down and bought a mat cutter so that I can cut my own beveled mats for artwork. The pre-cut ones add up, especially if you need a custom size, so I think this thing will pay for itself in the long run.

I forgot to photograph it all matted up in its frame, but this was the photograph that will be on exhibit. The reception for the show will be next Saturday, April 27, at the Robert Newell House Museum in St. Paul, OR, and the proceeds from artwork sold will go to the restoration of the Pioneer Mothers Cabin, another historic building in St. Paul.
