Framing at

The Bridge Gallery Framing can really make a difference to a piece of art. Some paintings can look quite striking on their own but with a frame they make much more of a statement. Framing an image shows that you are proud of it, that it means something to you and that you want others to notice it. People are much more likely to notice a framed piece of work and appreciate it. There are so many different ways of having an image framed now. You can choose whether or not you want glass, what type of glass you want, you can choose from a selection of different coloured mounts and whether you want a design on the mount. There are also a Just a couple of the huge selection of frames available at The Bridge Gallery

wide selection of both traditional and contemporary frames in different colours, thicknesses and designs.

With so much to choose from there is something to fit every picture. The Bridge Gallery offers an excellent framing service, our framers have over 100 years of experience. Just call in to the Bridge Gallery for a quote. We have a 7 day turnaround time and all our friendly staff are trained to help you choose the right frame for your piece!


How a frame can ‘make’ a Piece of Art Here are just a few before and after pictures. You can see how a frame transforms has transformed them!. Before (Right) & After (Bottom Left) An amazing piece by Stephanie Greaves, named “The Colt” £275. Double Framed.

Alison Johnson, “Peace” £345. Alison Johnson’s piece seen right, has had a dramatic makeover with the help of a more suitable frame.
