05 Feb Corporate Framing: Sugar Bags
Corporate art doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, we love it when it’s different and unique. Chip from AN Smith & Company did just that. His company specializes in all things sugar, and he wanted us to frame a few old sugar bags to hang in their office.
Instead of framing the bags, we decided to stretch them like a canvas print. We had to be very careful with these bags. Each one was very fragile and a few were too small for the strainers. Our goal is to preserve original art, and we don’t cut or destroy anything. Our conservator stretched the bags without cutting them and used furniture tacks on the sides to secure the smaller bags. The furniture tacks gave the pieces an old world look.
This art gives a little bit of history and character to AN Smith & Company. Click through the gallery below to see all of the bags!
