preparing for "art meets science" exhibit

framing seems to take more time and money than i expect.  while preparing for the "art meets science" exhibit at mount desert island biological laboratory i made sure to start early and look for good deals on quality material.  thanks to my pittsburgh artist + craftsman and frameworks, i was able to frame my pieces on budget without too many compromises.

i always manage to get unwanted debris like cat hair and fuzzies under the glass.  even with the cats banded from the framing area and a pre-clean with a micro fiber cloth, it never fails.

after a few hours of fussing over alignment and battling cat hair, art work is framed and ready to go.

pieces on display are "Pugettia gracilis Male (Graceful Kelp Crab)" and "Fog on Lake Union." prints can be purchased at my esty store.

for those in the northeast who are interested in attending the exhibit, opening day is july 10th.  hope to see you there!
