We were thrilled to be asked to frame a vast amount of work for Ed’s hometown exhibition, celebrating his success in becoming one of the world’s biggest music stars. We were particularly excited to frame his original artwork which he created for his early album covers. We also had the privilege of framing hand written lyrics from some of his most famous songs including 'Castle on the hill'. What an honour!
Kiss & Tell: Rodin and Suffolk Sculpture
We were thrilled to frame four original pencil drawings by Suffolk’s John Constable for this wonderful show. These are some of the most prestigious works we have been asked to work on.This exhibition explored the tale behind the lovers in Auguste Rodin’s iconic life-size marble sculpture The Kiss and the work of literature that inspired it, Dante’s Inferno from The Divine Comedy. This monumental artwork, on loan from the Tate, is a significant piece in the history of sculpture. The exhibition took you on a journey to uncover one of the most enduring themes in art – the human figure.

‘We have been using MF Gallery and Framing for conservation mounting and framing requirements of the Museum collection over many years. They provide a quality service that is punctual and reliable. The correct mount and frame are very important to the display of an artwork but also to the future preservation of that work and having framers who understand those needs is crucial.’ Emma Roodhouse – Curator for Christchurch Mansion and Ipswich Museum.
