Presto Chango

A real-life mom and dad solved a problem for parents everywhere: how do you display your children’s artwork? The answer is Articulate Gallery, with open faced frames that let you show off your child’s latest project in an instant. Simply slide any artwork into the slot on the side, and it’s on display for all to see. About ¾” deep, Articulate Gallery frames easily hold several pieces of paper (just slide the new ones on top). Their open, glass-free front means 3D artwork is no problem. So show off those macaroni, tissue paper, and pipe cleaner creations. A small family owned business near Glasgow, Scotland, Articulate Gallery began when mum Eona Craig was tired of showing her sons’ drawings on the refrigerator. She designed this clever kid’s art frame to keep their newest work on display and the refrigerator door free. Her husband, Colin, made the prototype and helped usher the frames into production. These frames are truly something the entire family can enjoy. Best of all, kids will get a kick out of having their very own revolving art gallery in the house.

    Hi - I'm Colin, and I am excited to share with The Grommet community The Articulate Gallery an award winning range of slot-sided picture frames especially for the display of 2D and 3D children’s artwork. It takes the children’s pictures off the fridge door and places them in their rightful place in a frame on the wall in an instant. Please let me know if you have any questions about them. I'm joining you today from Glasgow, Scotland so if you can get your questions in before 6pm EST, I'll be happy to answer them.

    What is the size of the slot where you slide the paper in?

    @Kischka Hi, the frames are designed to hold 9x12" construction paper and the thickness of the slot is about 3/4" so allows those cotton wool and pasta masterpieces to display beautifully.

  • Colin

    10/8/2014 1:00 PM

    @Carol Hi Carol, we considered magnets but felt that the children get the most out of the frames when their art is framed and on a wall like a real artist. It gives them a little sense of achievement to see their pictures properly frames which is good for their confidence in their creativity. Confident and creative learning are vital parts of a child's development. The frames come with holes in the back for hanging over a single fixing (nail or screw) and you can hang them portrait or landscape and change them with the artwork.

    @Charlotte Hi Charlotte, You simply hang one of the holes in the back of the frame over your chosen fixing and voila the job's done. You can change from portrait to landscape and frame your mini masterpiece in an instant.

  • Colin

    10/8/2014 1:05 PM

    @nicole we do understand that fridge door art is just that but when you frame it properly it does look so much better and deserves a place on the wall. Of course I will listen to the feedback and will see if we can develop the frame for attaching to the fridge. For the moment though they are made for hanging on the wall.

  • Colin

    10/8/2014 1:08 PM

    @Susan if you are short of wall space you can hang the frames at child height, encouraging them to discuss their creations with their peers gives them the ability to articulate better what they were thinking when thy made them.

    Great design! Have you tested this with an 8x11 piece of paper? Will it fall out?

  • Colin

    10/8/2014 1:15 PM

    @Tanya Hey, good question - actually it won't fall out but you might feel it is a tiny bit off centre. This is easy to fix though, just mount or stick the 8x11" on a piece of 9x12" paper and there you go, perfect! Actually this works particularly well for smaller artworks as it looks like a proper mount.

    Hi All,

    Amy from The Grommet team here. I love that everyone is giving such great suggestions for where to hang these and it sounds like many people are still partial to hanging artwork on the fridge. When Colin and his wife initially designed this, the thought was to have an alternative to fridge art, hence why it's really meant for the wall. By hanging this art on the wall, it frees up space on the fridge and heightens its importance in a way. If you as a supporter are still gung-ho about the fridge, you may want to consider traditional magnets.

  • Colin
    Colin – Special Guest
    10/8/2014 2:02 PM

    @Amy Hiya, yes, actually that will be in the next batch we bring in. We do the larger size here in the UK and it is ideal for showcasing the bigger works of art.

    @darcy thanks for the compliment. The frames are made from MDF with a white PU paint. You should be able to wipe clean without too much concern.

    Hello Colin, I LOVE your product! These are a must-have! I was reading some of the comments about the color of them being white, and it occurred to me that I am going to have my grandkids paint the front of these, so that each frame IS artwork and is HOLDING artwork too!! Just a thought for others who might feel that white doesn't "fit" into their decor!

    Clever idea! I'm a 65-year-old grandma and I STILL remember how great it felt when I was a child and my mother used actual frames to hang my artwork. As a military wife raising children, I always had a spot for my children's framed artwork in every home we lived in. Today, my son is into the maker movement, and my daughter is an artist!

    I think things like these frames DO step up the value of children's art work and encourages them to make "frameable" work. Great idea! I also like that you're going to be doing it in larger sizes! Keep up the good work!
