Displaying Small Art
This is one of several new 4″ square collages I’ve been working on. This is my favorite size for collage. They just have a nice intimacy and rhythm. They also look great framed with a big border, even as large as 11 x 14. Like this:
All you’d have to do is buy a standard frame and mount your collage directly onto a piece of mat board, slip it inside the frame, and there you have it. If you have concerns about the art coming in contact with the glass, you could include a mat with an opening larger than the small art to keep it away from the glass.
My choice is usually to add long skinny spacers between the backing board and the glass, small enough to be concealed by the frame. Those can be made by adhering narrow strips of mat board or foam core to the front of the backing board, flush with each of the four edges. They don’t have to be very long — maybe 3 or 4 inches.
My Tweaked Website
I spent quite a bit of time this morning tweaking my website. I’ve replaced a lot of the works and added a whole collage section. Feel free to let me know what you think!
