Exhibit features the art of the frame

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Frame in America: 1860-1960, an exhibition featuring more than 100 American frames, will be on view April 6 through May 20 at the Columbus Museum of Art.

The exhibition chronicles one of the most prolific and creative periods of American frame design.

The exhibition will also focus on the tools, materials, and methods used in gilding and frame manufacture.

By removing the frame from its original context, this exhibition allows the viewer to appreciate the diversity of design and technique of the American frame.

Included in the exhibition are working drawings, photographs, cross-sections of frames, and many other associated items.

James McNeill Whistler’s reeded frames, Renaissance-inspired frames designed by Stanford White, and painted frames created by American modernists John Marin and Lee Gatch are some of the artists’ frames featured.

The Columbus Museum of Art, 480 E. Broad St., is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and until 8:30 p.m. every Thursday.

Suggested admission is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and students 6 and older and free for museum members and children 5 and under.

For additional information call the museum at 614-221-4848.
