Paul has recently started a framing business, based at his home.  The name of the company is FRAMEPSOM (Frame Epsom). The Website is www.framepsom.com Take a look and see what you think.

 

I can produce handmade frames for any occasion. For artwork and photography to objects such as sport memorabilia or special event items. I can offer a wide range of styles and finishes in materials of the highest quality, both traditional and contemporary, and can happily help you choose the right style of moulding, mounts and glass where required. 

I’m happy to come and have a chat with us to discuss your needs. You may find it difficult or inconvenient to travel to me, so after an initial consultation by phone, I can arrange to come and visit you in within a 5 mile radius at no extra cost. I will happily give a free rough estimate of the work needed based on your requirements. This will only give you an indication of the final price which will be given prior to starting the work.

 As a special offer to the Epsom Art Group I will give an introductory offer of 20% off your first order, and I’ll offer 10% off thereafter.

 Call 01372 434444 or email info@framepsom.com

 You can either pay a deposit of 50% up front or pay in total. Payments are accepted by cash, credit or debit card.

Opening times are:

Monday to Friday. 9am to 5pm. By appointment only.

Saturday. 10am to 5pm. By appointment only.

Sunday. Phone queries only

                 Chairman’s Log 22082017

The late summer exhibition has just ended and a good number of pictures by a selection of artists have been sold. Even your chairman has been successful, anyone heard saying the buyers must have been desperate, will be looked upon with displeasure.

I will hopefully be able to tell you the number of paintings sold and how much we took on 6th September.

Thank you all for not collecting your pictures before 4pm even so there were still people looking round while we were removing pictures.

The more controlled hanging system worked well and will be used at future exhibitions. Our displaying unframed pictures leaning on the rails or in stands of what we have called browser pictures, in the past, has been very successful. The cardboard stands were  purchased from the SAA.

It works particularly well at Denbies but at Bourne Hall we will have to return to the wooden browsers as displaying that type of picture in that way is not practical.

Again I am sad to see that not all of our members displayed at Denbies. I again urge you all to put at least one entry into our exhibitions even a browser picture would be fantastic.

Our next exhibition is at Bourne Hall so easy to enter a picture and this year for the first time for many years we are going to have a reception on Wednesday 18th from 7.30pm till 9.00pm. We hope that the our reception will be opened by a council dignitary.

We will be handing out invitations in September. Please bring friends, family and anyone interested in art, along. There will be wine and nibbles of various sorts. There will be an opportunity to choose your favorite painting and a picture by one of the group's favourite artists will be raffled.

Make sure you are there even if it is only for a free glass of wine and some twiglets. So it must be the exhibition to enter.

I hope the message about our first event of the new season has reach everyone. Ann Wilkinson was due to give us a demo in pastels on 6th September but because of ill health she has had to pull out. However the spot has been filled by a Self Appraisal ably led by our own Dave Tribe. Many thanks to Dave for helping out. So bring any picture you have created on the Painting Days or during the summer

or just any picture.


Don’t forget if any member would like to contribute by giving a lecture, leading an appraisal or doing a demo, you are very welcome. Please contact Nicola our programme secretary, her e-mail address is on the About Us page of this web site.
The appreciation is enormous and your kudos will get a huge boost however the pay is terrible (in fact there isn’t any).
Hope to see you very soon.
Richard
