The MacLaren works closely with artists to produce framing for exhibitions and professional display. We use quality materials, provide museum-standard service and offer a wide range of frames and matts at competitive rates. For exhibitions, extra attention is paid to durability, ease of installation and reusability of frames. We also feature a “Tree Friendly” framing line that uses metal and recycled materials.

Our on-site framer Petra Hewson has trained with the Professional Picture Framers Association, the Library of Congress and the Canadian Conservation Institute. With over thirty years of experience, Petra has the technical skill set and specific materials knowledge to tackle any creative challenge.

MacLaren Members receive 10% off framing services.

Free framing consultations are available by appointment only on Tuesdays and Thursdays during Gallery Hours. Due to our efforts to maintain safe social-distancing, we are not able to accommodate drop-in appointments at this time. To book an appointment, please contact:
