The start of this new year brought us a wonderful opportunity to expand our horizons by going to Las Vegas! No, we didn’t go gambling! We actually attended the 2017 West Coast Art & Frame Expo, at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel.
It was an amazing experience to see all the different aspects of the framing industry under the Eiffel Tower! Really!
And we also took the opportunity to attend different workshops offered at this event. I was very impressed by the passion showed by the speakers in different areas, including gilding, mat decoration, creative mounting, laminating, preservation, and frame design.
I was a first time attendee, and was totally impressed and inspired.
And now, back home, we brought all that inspiration to AION Art Gallery to serve you even better! Looking forward to a year full of exciting things!
