To The Fore

To The Fore: new art exhibition showcases the best of the Southwest

I can hardly believe it: we’re four years old already! Since we entered the Somerset art scene in 2015 we’ve been honoured to work with a loyal client base, from artists at the start of their careers to giants of the art world like Hauser & Wirth. To celebrate, we’re putting on an exhibition of work by artists who we consider to be at the forefront of the Southwest art scene, including Professor Anita Taylor, Christopher Bucklow, Mark Karasick, and many more.

We’ve been overwhelmed by the support and enthusiasm for what we’re doing. My passion is designing and handmaking picture frames that show artwork off at its best as well as protecting it from damage. I get to see the most incredible artwork on a daily basis: I’ve framed all sorts, from kids shoes to Piranesi to Banksy’s. Keep a look out for our annual summary of the past year’s projects which will be posted here as soon as we get some time. [Here’s last years.]

Save the date

To The Fore birthday exhibition will run for one weekend only, come along to the preview event on Friday 5th April 6-8pm, and pop in on Saturday and Sunday 6th & 7th April 10am-3pm. In the studio above Mount, Silk Mill West, Saxonvale, Frome, BA11 1PT

You don’t need a ticket to attend, just turn up – but if you’d like to book-in via Eventbrite you’re welcome to do so, it’ll probably help us in our planning:

Here’s the line-up so far, we’re adding more to it as we curate the show. [note: the small space means that we’re selecting work based on how it gels together and as such we can’t necessarily include everyone who deserves to be shown: it’ll be a snapshot of works that sit alongside each other particuarly well.]
