As we’ve continued playing with creating more traditional hand finished frames, here are a couple that have been completed for customers over the past 6 months. One of which went of to the Royal Academy of Art, London, for the Summer Open Exhibition.

In January 2014, a longstanding client and friend of APG Works had his Standard Practice Exhibition at the B&B Gallery Sheffield. It was an extensive collection of new and old works that span a period of 15 years. We are pleased to say that we do a lot of framing for Kid Acne and the B&B Gallery and it’s always a pleasure working with them.
Jo Peel Screenprint & Print Sheffield Show 15/01/14
In January 2014, we played a part in the production and framing of the Millennium Gallery’s Print Sheffield Show. It was a show that brought together Sheffield print makers including ourselves at APG Works, Kid Acne, EMA,Jo PeelJames Green and many others. Many of the artists featured in the show already have a connection with APG and therefore come to us for framing and screen printing. Jo Peel commissioned us to screen print her image of the iconic Sheffield Park Hill Flats. This was a large 6 colour, limited edition screen print of 30 prints.
Studio Rack Shot: this print is available to buy framed at APG Works and from Jo Peel website.
8 colour screen print Image Size 60x75cm, Paper size 70x85cm Somerset Tubsized Satin 310gsm Signed Limited Editions of 50 prints each in 2 colourways
We were commissioned in November 2013 to produce two limited editions of prints for the Sheffield based artist, Piers Williams. Piers works out of the Yorkshire Artspace Persistence Works Studio on Brown Street where he produces beautifully intricate oil paintings, his main subject being flowers. His work is sold through out the UK and he has a strong following in China.
We are used to working with more graphical images but this print was approached with a painter’s eye, dealing with the interaction of colours at different levels of opacity. Merging the painter’s method of building colour with successive overlays, and the clarity of screen print has created a striking image that couples the vibrant block colours of the background with the delicacy of the Iris flowers.
We shipped many of these prints to China, where Piers had a solo exhibition in the 798 art district of Beijing.
