You won't be required by the curators to get your work framed until you've been notified that a donor intends to purchase it. At such time all the necessary details will be sent to you and you will have an appropriate amount of time for framing.
Please note: You do not need to add any hanging hardware to your piece. The installation crew at the health center will affix their own secure picture hanging system upon delivery of your artwork.
If you want to get your work framed locally, and we hope you do, since this is a local initiative designed to stimulate the local creative economy (and of course, benefit the Health Center as well,) ArtUp officially recommends:
Van Gogh's Gear
307 Market Street, downtown Lowell
The Lowell Gallery
219 Central Street, downtown Lowell
