Hello from the Fine Art Trade Guild

Post by fine-art-trade-guild » Tue 05 Feb, 2019 1:31 pm

The Fine Art Trade Guild now has its own account on Framers Forum, so all official Guild posts will come from fine-art-trade-guild

A bit about the Guild
The Guild traces its roots back to 1847, and was formed as the Fine Art Trade Guild in 1910. It exists to encourage and promote the best in art and framing, and brings together, as an international family, most of the biggest manufacturers and suppliers in the industry along with framers, galleries, artists, photographers and printers.
It is owned by its members, and run by its members for the benefit of its members. This means that every single member is the Guild. The Guild is the sum of its membership.
The members who are elected to run the Guild do so on a voluntary basis. They either run their own art or framing related business, or represent a supplier or manufacturing member.

It was good to chat for a bit with Louise Hay at the booth at the WCAF show.

Agreed Jerry,

In addition to Louise from the FATG, we also got to see Keith Hewitt and Martin Harrold from Lion. Were there any others at WCAF from the Isles?
