  Welcome to our bi-monthly newsletter where we share valuable news and information we've accumulated over 45 plus years of archival picture framing. To quote Richard Solomon, President of Pace Editions in New York City, "We find PSG to be providing us with excellent service, a fine quality and variety of frames at very competitive prices. We're amazed that a firm located in Boston is able to compete so favorably with locally based companies."

The ultimate celebration of fine art prints and the art of printmaking makes its annual return to Manhattan during New York Print Week October 23-29, 2017. Though many bemoan the move from the storied Park Avenue Armory, the new location at the River Pavilion Javits Center should offer more room to roam and discover exhibitions, gallery talks, and demonstrations. Download the full Print Week schedule below and watch the video from last year's IFDPA Print Fair. We hope to see you there!

Rebecca Parker's  article  in  is a great introduction to the  Print Fair  as well as a solid report on it's big move to the Javits Center.
Pucker Gallery Celebrates 50 Years
Samuel Bak
In Search of a Portrait B
Acrylic and oil on canvas 24 x 20”
By any measure 1967 was an eventful year: The first successful human heart transplant, Thurgood Marshall’s appointment to the Supreme Court,  The Doors  releasing their first album, and a small art gallery opened at 171 Newbury Street in Boston’s Back Bay. 

When they planned to open their original gallery, Richie Bertman of CBT Architects was brought in to create an environment that felt more like a home than the traditional ‘white box’ art gallery. Pucker Gallery’s offerings expanded considerably from that first year, so much so that after finding a lack of quality fine art framers in the area who could produce custom archival frames in volume, Bernie and Sue opened PSG Framing in 1972.

Fifty years on Pucker Gallery, now located at 240 Newbury Street, a block from the original location, continues the practice of encouraging and nurturing artists and collectors alike. Few contemporary galleries can rival Pucker Gallery’s collections of fine art ceramics from around the world and the eclectic mix of artists who work in a variety of media including photography.

At a recent celebration for the gallery’s 50th anniversary Bernie & Sue's granddaughter, Abby, shared her thoughts and reflections on what the Gallery has meant to her and to the Pucker family:

" I feel such pride and joy looking at what my grandparents, and now Jon, have built and are continuing to build. They have created a family of artists, lovers of art, and supporters of these artists’ careers who don't buy or create for sport. People who care about people. The people behind the art, their stories, their struggles, and the deep need to express those stories, struggles and feelings is what brings everyone in this family together. “

We at PSG Framing completely agree!
