CANVASES, CRATES, FINE ART SERVICES

STRAINERS & PANELS

All of our strainers and panels are handmade, using a custom design that produces a strong, lightweight product. We understand the varying needs of contemporary artists therefore our strainers and panels can be ordered in any size and profile and are available with or without canvas, un-primed or primed to your specifications. We also offer customized, non-rectangular shaped strainers and panels.

Our strainers are made from basswood; a strong, lightweight material with low-acidity. Joints are glued and compression nailed. The exterior frame is finished using hard wood splines and integrated cross bracing.

Our panels are made with a high-grade Baltic birch plywood face and supported by a basswood gridded framework. The entire panel is sealed with a poly-acrylic protective coating.

Painting 'float' frames are also made by request.

SHIPPING CRATES

We offer a wide range of crating and packing services for both domestic and international transit. Products range from economical one-way containers and travel frames to more comprehensive and reusable crates. Interiors are polyethylene-lined and partitioned where needed using rigid 2-ply cardboard and foam core. Our international shipping crates comply fully with ISPM-15 regulations and are clearly labeled and identifiable.

OUR GOAL

BLACKWIDOW LLC was established with a few simple yet important goals in mind. The primary goal being to produce high quality, affordable products while providing discreet and professional fine art services. By doing so, we hope to build long lasting relationships with artists, galleries, museums and other art professionals.

We conduct our business in an efficient and conscientious manner. All of our communication and correspondence is paperless and we do our very best to source materials and equipment locally whenever possible.

Although we are a young company, the BLACKWIDOW team has over 10 years of experience in the industry, having previously worked in London, Chicago and New York. We are active members of LA’s artistic community and hope that our business will be a welcome addition.

PEDESTALS & EXHIBITION DISPLAYS

Our standard plinths and pedestals are made to order using MDF or Baltic birch plywood and can be produced to a painted finish, stained or simply sanded. Interior frameworks and support ‘ribs’ can be added if required. In addition to pedestals we are equipped and eager to collaborate with you on more specialized projects.
