Fine Art Framing at Dales Gallery

Dales Gallery has over 40 years of experience in guiding clients in their framing selections.

The presentation of art in any given environment is vital to the enjoyment of the artwork. Making choices about which frames to choose for a painting can sometimes be confusing, especially when confronted with the wide variety of design solutions.

Drop by or contact us and discover why artists trust their framing to us.


Why should I consider custom framing?

This is a very common question, for the framing of a piece of art can sometimes exceed the price of the art itself. Some people will pause seriously before commissioning quality frames, or turn and hunt for the most inexpensive solution.

The most frugal art lover will consider a quality custom frame as an essential part of their investment. They know that a custom frame will not only complement the beauty of the work but will provide archival preservation.

The retention of value and potential appreciation of your custom-framed investment will far out-weigh the savings gained in purchasing a discount product. Discount framers provide at best, limited guarantees of their work.

Because our relationship with art is aesthetic and emotional, this relationship greatly improves our lives. Framing your valued artwork is worth the best attention and materials we know of. A quality-framed piece of art is a gift for a lifetime.

I already have a frame, will you put my picture in it?

Yes. We can custom cut a mat to fit the art and the frame together. In most cases your frame can even be resized if necessary.

How long does it take to get a job done?

Usually 7-10 days. We do offer some specialty moldings that can take up to 3 weeks.

I can't wait 7-10 days, can you help me?

Yes, if you are willing to choose from our selection of in stock moldings and mats.

I really want my new piece of art to look good with my existing decor, how can I be sure it will?

Showing us photos of key elements of your surrounding decor can ensure a cohesive look. Bring these photos of furniture legs, couch or drapery fabric, metal fixtures, wood floor colour and paint colour in to us to help choose the best design for your framing. Or schedule a home consultation and we will bring our samples to you.
