So we have been working on a lot of exciting new projects and this is one of them that I wanted to pass along to those I know. We have put an online company together that will provide art from Utah locals as well as posters, prints & consignment at a low price. If you or anyone you know is an artist and would be interested in selling some of your work let us know and we can review your work. The idea behind this website is to offer affordable art to Utah locals of course and nation wide. Keep checking back to see new art that we have added as well as great deals for both art & custom framing. Another great thing that Peak Art & Frame offers is a 15% discount for Utah locals. Our prices are typically 10% lower than Michaels when they have there 50% off sales. Most people don't really think that art and framing is something they can afford but there are so many options and framing choices. We will be collecting all types of mediums and styles. so please don't be shy if you are an artist and want to share your work.

Canvas Paintings

Oil paintings are a wonderful addition to any home. Peak has so many options for Canvas Paintings including floater frames, & the ability to stretch your canvas pieces. In the photo below we have a canvas piece stretched on stretcher bars. The gallery stretch allows for you to not need a frame around the piece because the art wraps around the sides. This is a great way to showcase art in a more modern or clean room.

Axis Mundi

Depending on the size of the piece will depend on the size stretcher bars you will need. With thinner stretcher bars you have the ability to put a frame on the artwork dressing the piece up.

Notice the picture below, there are two pieces, one with the gallery wrap and the other has been put in a floater frame. With a floater frame the art sits in a frame but the frame is attached on the back of the art so the sides are visible. With this frame you will need the painting to wrap around the edges of the painting.
