The art of custom framing has been around for centuries, however, materials and techniques involved in this specialized work have advanced significantly and rapidly over the last decade.
The Left Bank Gallery specializes in preservation custom framing.  Doc Dugan was trained by the nation's premier frame designer and manufacturer, Larson-Juhl, of Atlanta, Georgia.

Typical Preservation Frame Package

Important works of art require specialized framing techniques known as "conservation" or "preservation" framing.

Conservation framing is a strict discipline involving a formally trained conservator.  Essentially, nothing is allowed to be done to, added or taken away, from the piece to affect it.

Preservation framing allows one to mount the piece, using the proper materials, and display it in a frame designed to protect and preserve it while being displayed in one's home or office.
