Before: The College of Dentistry has displayed the class composites from 1966 to current. However the framing practices back in the day exhibited the worst of the worst from a conservation standpoint. We are redoing them to give them a fresher look and hopefully slow down the damage from acid, UV light and outdated styles! BEFORE: Silver metal frames, Faded blue mat with silver accent, cardboard backing, masking tape and plain glass. The pictures are fading and falling down. Glass is so hazy you can't read the names. AFTER: Black Wood with blue and black accent mats. A very simple but fresh look for the College.
The night before Thanksgiving was a crazy time to work, however, in this busy clinic it was a good time to get out the ol' hammer drill and get things done! Thanks UK College of Dentistry for the opportunity to work with you on this worthwhile project!

The Kentucky/Tennessee Chapter of the Professional Picture Framers Association held their annual framing competition in October in Lexington, KY. South Hill Gallery entered both the Print and Open Framing Competition and won FIRST PLACE in both categories! We were also honored to win the Popular Choice vote and a Judges Award for our Open Framing entry as well. The competition was held at Joseph Beth Booksellers and the pieces were on public display for their patrons to view and cast votes for Popular Choice.
Displayed above are our ribbons, as we cannot post pictures of the pieces themselves until after the International Competition, which will be held in February, 2010 in Anaheim, CA. However, if you come by South Hill Gallery you can see the pieces on display and have your framing projects completed by a frame shop that truly has "Award Winning" frame designers!
