The Strand Center for the Arts Framing Studio Grand Opening and Open House

The Strand Center for the Arts is excited to announce the opening of our Professional Framing Studio on July 19, 2017, located on the Second Floor of the Main Building at 23 Brinkerhoff Street in downtown Plattsburgh, NY. Simply take the elevator to the left of the main entrance up to the Second Floor and the Framing Studio is the first door on the right as you exit the elevator. The Strand Center Framing Studio provides space, equipment, and training for artist members who look to frame and exhibit their work at the professional level. The Strand Center Framing Studio also provides its services to the community as a custom framing shop.

An orientation to the Framing Studio will be held the first Saturday of each month for artists interested in framing techniques. This course will go over the basics of the Framing Studio space use, rental rates, artist materials available for purchase, an introduction to mat measuring, using Logan mat-cutters, operating the frame joiner, and break down procedures. Participants should bring in a photo or work of their choice (not to exceed 11”x14” for this class) and will cut a mat for the photo at the end of class to practice their newly learned skills. Please bring protective eyewear. This class is required in order to rent the Framing Studio for individual/artist use. To sign up for this class and/or see the other great framing class options, please call The Stand Center Box Office at 518-563-1604 or go online at

For custom framing services, customers are encouraged to call our Gallery Director at 518-563-1604 or email at to make an appointment with our framing expert. The Strand Center Framing Studio is outfitted with a diverse selection of frame samples and mat board samples so our expert staff can help you select the perfect combination of materials to compliment your artwork and home décor.

The Strand Center for the Arts will also host an Open House the same evening, July 19, 2017 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The Strand Center for the Arts invites you to come and take a look around our art center and galleries. The community will get an opportunity to see everything we have to offer, get info on classes, upcoming exhibits, as well as volunteering!
