Heading into the new year of 2022 we are re-evaluating our in store practices.
Our staff is fully vaccinated, but we are still doing what we can to limit exposure and mitigate risk to our customers.
At our showroom...
Our showroom is open for customers, we have downgraded from requiring masks to suggesting them. If there are other clients in the shop at the same time, please be courteous and considerate. We can all progress as we want as long as we are respectful and mindful of each other.
Parking lot pickup is always available. Contact us to coordinate and we will be happy to bring your finished artwork down to you at our parking lot. 513-533-3400 to call the shop to get artwork brought to you.
Payments are available by cash, check, credit, or online portal for credit card payments (processed by Square). When you call or email to schedule pickup, etc, we can determine what is the best method for you.
Delivery and installation...
We are continuing to provide on site assistance with delivery and installation services with the following guidelines.
We are wearing masks continuously for all on site work and maintaining social distance where possible.
Please call and we can determine how to best to schedule, we will determine availability to fulfill your needs.
If you get the answering machine, please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible. Due to our limited staffing, at present, we are occasionally tied up when calls come in and can't get immediately to the phone.
Who are we?
Picture framers who love art.
Westcott & Schaff is a locally owned and operated business made up of artists and artisans from across all walks of the creative world. Nathaniel, Mary, Justin, Dave, and Wendy are all here, at your disposal, to make the most of your artwork.
We have all spent 20 plus years each in the field of framing. Our experience with various types of art, media, and materials gives us a breadth of knowledge to draw upon when selecting framing. Our time spent working with framing materials, both new and old, means that we have time and experience with the effects of conservation on art and the ramifications of eschewing those protections.
Our friends and cohort throughout the art world means that we have some of the best and the brightest contacts to call upon to make sure that we are getting the most out of your artwork.
What are we doing?
It all starts with love. Finding a piece of art that speaks to you and through you. Bringing something beautiful into your life to cherish.
What we do is protect that precious object from time and environment.
We sculpt the experience of viewing and give context to make art speak to your personal relationship with it, not as an object to be owned, but as an expression of human experience.
We elevate art to the pedestal that it deserves, giving it a platform from which to be admired.
Art Hanging and Installation
A house isn't your home until your art breaths personality and life into it. There is a deep satisfaction to being surrounded by the collection of a lifetime.
But doing the actual hanging is a pain in the butt.
We will come to your house, take the frames that are on the floor, leaning against the wall, and put them so that they are off the floor, on the wall.
We can give you advice, tell you secrets of art and the display of art, and make things happen that will make everything better. You can skip the hassle and get right to the appreciation. Just like that.
Art Consultation and Services
Do you have art or art-like questions?
Well, just so happens that we have art-like answers.
And if we don't have answers, we know other people that do know answers. We can go ask them. Or give you their phone numbers and you can call them.
We love a good puzzle and coming up with creative solutions keeps us out of trouble.
Give us a call and we'll see what we can come up with.
