Crowd Funded Art

You’ve fallen in love - with a piece of art.
The painting is perfect in every way. You find yourself dreaming about it. It’s one-of-a-kind, and you’re confident you’ll never see anything like it again. 
The artwork is in a gallery, so you visit it whenever you can, hoping that no one else desires it as much as you do. You can picture it in your home. In fact, you’ve already chosen a spot for it. You know this painting would bring you joy every day, for the rest of your life.
The only problem is the price. Oh, it’s definitely worth every penny the gallery is asking. You just don’t have quite enough of those pennies right now.
But, where there’s a will, there’s a way. 
It’s the holiday season, so be bold! Tell your spouse, your siblings, your parents and your kids that you would LOVE that painting.
And if you and your friends normally exchange gifts, ask them to contribute to your painting fund instead.
Split several ways, the price per person might be much more palatable for everyone.
When giving a gift, the giver wants to know that it makes the recipient happy. So, with the singular goal of making that painting your own, let those who love you know that this piece has captured your heart, and that, if they join together to buy it for you, you’ll be filled with gratitude for their generosity.
Years from now, their normal gift of a Christmas sweater will be deep within a landfill, but that painting will still be feeding your soul.
So, do what it takes to make your dream come true.
At American Frame, we have a lovely gallery space. The exhibits change every month, so we give you the opportunity to see a lot of artwork throughout the year. Our most recent exhibit featured the art of Tim Gagnon, a Maine native whose paintings are stunning.

A particular piece caught the eye of one of our customers. Everything about it was perfect, except the price. So, she did what anyone in love would do: she found a way to make it work. She talked with her husband and mother and her son and convinced them that the painting would bring her joy for years to come. Her family understood, and they’re gifting her with the painting this Christmas.
It’ll be a very special day for her. One of many to come.

  2. Framing is very important to displaying or protect a picture or artwork. Framing will make the picture or artwork looks batter. Further, framing will help the picture or artwork to stay batter for a long time. Perth picture framing
