Over the years, Lowy has often been called upon to frame a collection of works by a particular artist for various galleries and exhibitions. This presents a unique framing challenge: how to frame each individual work of art while creating a cohesive presentation for the group of paintings.
Two such recent shows include Jacob Collins and Shirl Goedike, both exhibited at Adelson Galleries on East 82nd Street in Manhattan.
With both shows, Lowy was able to provide frames for each work, which not only suited each painting itself, but also brought together the ambiance of the show and connected the works to one another. As so aptly put by Larry Shar, President of Lowy, “The key to framing an exhibition of contemporary artists is to choose architecturally appropriate moldings that work in the space and on the art; with sympathetic patinas that compliment the artist’s palette making for pleasant viewing and enhancement of the artwork”.
