“Oh no, my picture has broken glass!” Glass replacement service

At Whispering Woods Gallery, we frequently replace broken glass. Glass can break for many reasons.

  • A proper hook was not used.
  • The hanging hardware was not sufficient for the piece. Screw eye hangers and sawtooth hangers usually are not the best choice.
  • The wire did not catch onto the hook properly.
  • The frame was jarred by a person or object.
  • House repairs to the roof or siding shook the wall.
  • The art was not hung on a timely basis and was jarred while on the floor.
  • The art was leaned against a wall without being secured.
  • The art did not have sufficient protection during transport.  Many times glass breaks during shipping or a move.

Our goal is to safely dispose the broken glass, remove glass shards, repair or replace a broken frame, and replace the glazing with the appropriate choice. If the mat is scratched we can replace it.  Prices vary according to size, type of glass, and complexity of the project. We stock five types of Tru Vue glass at our shop – Regular, Conservation Clear, Non-glare, Conservation Reflection Control and Museum. All glass is cut in our shop to fit your frame. Drop by with your  piece and we’ll get it fixed up fast. No worries!

“Vintage is Now” Day 26 – Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Guitar Strings, Photo and Guitar Pick

Custom Framed Stevie Ray Vaughan photo, guitar strings and pick
Custom Framed Stevie Ray Vaughan photo, guitar strings and pick
This frame includes a Stevie Ray Vaughan photo, guitar strings and guitar pick.

Welcome to “Vintage is Now” day 26 where I feature a vintage photo of American blues musician Stevie Ray Vaughan, his guitar string packets and a guitar pick.  Combining a photo with objects helps to tell the story. We frequently frame signed photos of musicians, sometimes with posters and concert tickets. Many of these items are purchased on Ebay, from dealers or at auctions.

The frame was a simple black and silver Larson Juhl frame that was deep enough to accomodate the packets.  Museum Glass was used to prevent glare from the black mat.

Stevie Ray Vaughan was killed at the age of 35 in a helicopter crash. We were glad to frame this meaningful collection of items from a musician that left our world too soon. We know that the owner enjoys it.
