FRAMING

Framing works of art is as significant as the artwork itself. It is important to know the difference methods and options to framing canvas, prints, or photography. Choosing the right frames and mats will enhance the artwork to provide premium exposure.

 
 

Collection management

Art collection management include defining a vision for your collection, cataloging and overseeing of the artwork's proper care. Incontemporary provides an online data base with access to the collection's works from multiple locations. Most importantly our clients receive total transparency and discretion through out the entire process.

 

Displaying artwork

We act as your personal curators. Lighting, hight and focal points should all be involved when making decisions on displaying artwork. Collaborations are done on a regular basis with other professionals in the field such as interior designers to provide the best advice for you, the collector.
