Bayview Framing & Art
We all have things we value. It may be a valuable work of art, a treasured family memento or a simple thing that is just beautiful in our eyes. Protecting these treasures ensures that they will remain in good condition to be passed on to other appreciative owners. Framing is an ideal way to protect your valued pieces while displaying them for the enjoyment of your family and friends. It’s critical that this framing is done using conservation or archival methods, to prevent deterioration of the work being framed.
Old fashioned? So are we. Call us at (250) 245-0011 with any questions about framing.
Framing has two primary purposes: to enhance the artwork being framed using a variety of techniques; to achieve this without damaging the artwork and, where appropriate, to protect the artwork from damage caused by light, acid content in mounting material and other causes.
Some of the most demanding challenges in framing involve objects that do not lay flat. How do you frame a historic garment? A ceramic piece? A grouping of sports memorabilia? The answer is to frame the object or group in a deep frame known as an object box or shadowbox.

The Michael Dean print of Holland Creek Trail we asked you to frame for our home was perfectly done. The mat colour and frame choice were spot on, setting off Michael's colours wonderfully. Thank you!Paul Mycroft (Owner, PMD - Paul Mycroft Design)
