About the position:
Atthowe Frameworks seeks an experienced art framer and fitter. We are looking for an entrepreneurial indi-vidual who is equally comfortable client-facing and working independently. This person will be the main point of contact, working with clients to custom design frames and work independently to fit and mount artworks. You will work closely with the shop’s woodworker to see that frames are built to spec and main-tain the shop and all inventories. This job has the potential for growth and becoming a full-time permanent employee after 6 months.
The successful candidate must possess three years of archival, fine art framing experience. They have demonstrated an understanding of various material types and framing techniques. Must have experience handling objects of varying media, size, and value. Understand and abide by archival framing procedures and practices in art storage, handling, framing, mounting, and hinging. Equally important is an awareness of how to prevent damage to delicate surfaces while handling, packing, and transporting artwork.
