She will be the guest speaker at the PAA meeting on Sunday, Jan. 20, at the El Dorado Senior Center, 935 Spring St. in Placerville.
Owner of Archival Framing, Neath is one of the founders of Second Saturday and is the art curator for KVIE Channel 6 Art Auction in Sacramento.
Neath began her framing career when she was 19 years old under the tutelage of legendary Sacramento gallery owner Michael Himovitz. She’s been a part of the art scene in Sacramento ever since.
Aside from framing individual pieces, Neath was commissioned to frame all the artwork and mirrors for the then-new Embassy Suites hotel in Sacramento. She has framed Andy Warhol work, along with Thiebaud, Fred Dalkey and Pierre-Auguste Renoir to name a few.
Her demonstration at PAA will begin after a short business meeting at 1:30 p.m. The meeting is over about 3:30 p.m.
The public is encouraged to attend this free event and refreshments will be served.
For more information visit Neath’s Archival Framing Website at archivalframing.com. The shop’s gallery space has collections of paintings, posters and more that can be purchased. The shop is located at 3223 Folsom Blvd.in Sacramento.
“To me, everything we frame is precious. Everything we do is museum-quality — hence the name “Archival,” said Neath.
To learn how to frame work expertly, attend the PAA meeting on Sunday, Jan. 20.
