LUCY McLAUCHLAN PRINT LAUNCH

May 13th, 2018

 

Please join us as we show off our completed new gallery space, Studio 4 gallery with an exclusive print launch by renowned artist Lucy McLauchlan. The event will be at The Framers at the Custard Factory on the 31st May from 6-9pm, all welcome.

 

 

British born Lucy McLauchlan’s large-scale monochromatic paintings have covered multi-story buildings across Europe, gigantic billboards in China, windows in Japan, huts in The Gambia, Italian water towers, Norwegian lighthouse, Detroit car parks and abandoned NYC subway tunnels.

Implicit within her work is a deep respect for nature as she draws inspiration from her immediate environment; allowing it to inform and direct what is an intuitive and explorative process.

All new Framers!

November 5th, 2017

 

Some news of exciting developments with us here at the Framers. You may have heard the Custard Factory has new owners who are investing both in the building and the wider area. The corner where our workshop is currently set up is getting rather run down and tired and our roof is on its last legs, roof leaks are not the best for a picture framers! So the whole courtyard area is being repaired and re-developed.

This has prompted us to take stock and refine our business, so the current partners are separating the Framers into two companies.

I, Lawrence will continue with The Framers which will be moving in the new year, creating a new bespoke  gallery and workshop in Gibb Street Court yard, continuing The Framers 20 + years legacy at The Custard Factory.  The Framers will close for an extra week over the Christmas holidays to move into the new workshop and gallery, just round the corner from our current workshop, continuing and improving on the quality service and products we’ve developed over the years.

John and Richard are starting afresh and heading to the countryside, setting up as the Framing Studios at Beckets farm, just off the M42, south Birmingham. https://www.theframingstudios.com  for more information.

Please note new opening times starting from November 2017.

In the mean time it’s business as usual, I’m still in the current workshop getting on with all your Christmas orders, and will be open and working up to 23rd December. Watch out for big Christmas moving sale in the gallery as part of Digmas, starting on the 25th November.

Looking forward to the new start in the new year with exciting new projects and events in the gallery as well as new products and services in the workshop, keep an eye out for re-brand and web site update in the pipeline too.

Thank you for your custom and hope to continue offering our quality standard and passion in our work as we move on in the next chapter of our company.
