So you’ve finally acquired your dream piece of art; congratulations! Working to educate yourself about how to protect your art is is a great first step. If you plan to continue collecting and investing in art, knowing the proper way to display and care for your art is one of the best tools you can equip yourself with to make sure your investment stands the test of time.

Framing & Location
One of the first things you want to do when you receive your art is have it professionally framed to help keep it clean and protected. Aside from keeping your art safe and secure, framing also adds aesthetic appeal to your piece, with a number of options in frame style and mats.

Once you’ve had your art framed, naturally, you’ll want to hang it and display it. Humidity control is key in preserving your art. Particularly a canvas, linen, or paper piece. Art surfaces expand and contract as the weather/atmosphere changes. For this reason, it is important to avoid subjecting your artworks to extreme changes in humidity so try hanging your artwork on interior wall and avoid if possible exterior poorly insulated walls.
