NEW YORK, NY.- Eli Wilner & Company
has announced its post Covid-19 reopening, and the renowned framer is once again accepting new re-framing and frame restoration projects. These past few months, work by the companys master craftspeople has been paused as part of a NYC-wide shutdown. With restrictions being lifted, projects have cautiously resumed at both Wilners NYC Gallery and LI Studio locations.
This month, Eli Wilner & Company will also be announcing the recipient of its 2020 Eli Wilner Museum Frame Restoration Grant. Dozens of applications have been received from our national museum community and are currently under review by a panel of distinguished jurors. This jury includes former museum directors, auction specialists, and prominent collectors.
Eli Wilner & Company has over 10,000 projects featured in both private and public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Guggenheim, among others. The US White House currently displays 28 Eli Wilner & Co. frames. In 2019, Wilner was honored by the Historic Charleston Foundation with the Samuel Gaillard Stoney Conservation Craftsmanship Award for his companys work in historic picture frame conservation.
