Photo Preservation & Canvas Stretching – Little Rock, AR


Frames are meant for more than just dressing up your photographs, paintings, and prints. They should also help preserve and protect your vintage photos and precious arts for years to come. Hillcrest Gallery Custom Framing & Fine Art in Little Rock, Arkansas, offers conservation framing so you can proudly display your artwork and other important documents and treasures while preserving and protecting them for generations. We also offer canvas stretching to assure that your photos or artworks fit into the frame.

Conservation Framing

In conservation framing, we use conservation-quality archival materials specially designed to help protect the artwork for a long period of time. The materials we use are pulp- and lignin-free and adhere to the standards set forth by the United States Library of Congress. Conservation framing provides the ultimate preservation and protection for original art, cherished family photos, certificates and diplomas.

Original Artwork Conservation Framing

Bring in your original artwork so that we can suggest the proper techniques for preservation and presentation. Our knowledgeable staff will base their recommendations on the type of media you present to us. This type of framing helps preserve original artwork such as:

  • Oil on Canvas
  • Acrylic on Canvas
  • Limited Edition Prints
  • Photographs
  • Pastels
  • Prints & Posters
  • Watercolor on Paper
  • Mirrors
  • Needlework
  • Childrens' Art
  • Diplomas & Degrees
  • Sports Memorabilia

Prints & Posters

We use archival materials to preserve original art and signed, limited-edition prints. Open edition prints and posters may be dry-mounted on foam board. The process we use depends on the type of print or poster you bring to us. If you want to protect needlework treasures, archival materials are also the ideal choice.

Canvas Stretching

Restore the shape of a rolled-up painting with canvas stretching from Hillcrest Gallery in Little Rock, AR. This process is especially effective when you buy an unstretched painting on a canvas while traveling. Simply roll it, put it in a tube, and bring it to us to stretch for you.

We offer a large selection of canvas "floater" frames in which the edges of the canvas are not covered as with a traditional frame. This gives your painting a crisp, clean edge and helps protect it from damage. Ask us if canvas stretching might be the right choice for your painting or photograph on canvas!
