Top Notch Framing Without the Attitude 11/13/2010

I love the framing at this place! What I especially love is how they gently move me beyond my comfort zone, and encourage me to try new things I would have never considered otherwise. And... they have extreme patience to boot. It takes me forever to make up my mind, especially when I'm considering something new, and they never make me feel rushed or unwelcome. Its truly a high end framing shop with none of the high end snobbery or attitude. You don't like their suggestions? No problem.. they just create some more possibilities for you. At other shops I've been you, you have to brace yourself for the bad vibes that shoot your way when you don't fall in love with everything they suggest. A great find. more

best framing in the Bay Area 10/13/2010

Choosing a frame can sometimes be overwhelming, because there are so many choices available, but the staff at Paul Mahder Gallery make it both easy and interesting. Paul and Rich are delightful, and will gladly work with you to create an exquisite setting for your art. Rich, the main framing designer, has a wealth of Interior Design expertise to draw on, and an especially nuanced understanding of color and proportion. I'm a fiber artist who cares a great deal about color and design, and Rich quickly pulled together several framing suggestions for me to choose among. Rich's work helped me see something new in my oil paintings and working with him was a fascinating process. The gallery staff will even make house calls to help you decide how to frame and hang your piece to enrich and complete your space! Their workmanship is impeccable, they deliver on time, and you'll be very pleased with the whole experience. more

Best framing in San Francisco 10/13/2010

Being a small collector of contemporary art and photography I was very excited to discover Paul Mahder's work. My first introduction was through a friend. Since then I have been an avid supporter of his gallery. When it opened I was excited to discover Paul had incorporated custom framing. Surprised by the large selection of frames, Rich, their in-house framing designer worked with me to find some creative and beautiful solutions for my pieces. more

Exceeding expectations 10/13/2010

The Paul Mahder Gallery in Presdio Heights is a hidden gem for framing. Found them quite by accident and am now sold. Had no idea how many options were available. Excellent choices, good design ideas, and pricing options. What a great find. more

Excellent Framing Designer 10/11/2010

My wife and I recently had a large (24? x 36?) color-pencil drawing framed at the Paul Mahder gallery. Framing is a little daunting when it?s an original piece and you really don?t want to make the wrong choice. That?s where Rich the framing designer at the Gallery was especially helpful. Rich explained that with a really colorful drawing, such as our, it was important to select frame that would not distract the viewer. He helped us select what was essentially a simple and elegant black wood frame, and then tossed in a very important touch ? he suggested using a matte with a black edge ? in essence creating an interior border which places the attention on the drawing. A couple of simple choices turned a very strong drawing into a major center piece. more

Wonderful Art and Framing here! 10/11/2010

Situated in the Presidio Heights neighborhood, this gallery is a great asset to our city. Wonderful light -filled space. Always cheerful gallerist Paul Mahder is extremely friendly and informative. They do a very nice framing job too and have an amazing array of framing options in the back room to choose from. They help you pick out the best frames to enhance your photos for a great quality job. I had 6 pieces of artwork framed there for a very reasonable price. more

Best Framing Around!! 9/4/2010

I had some framing done at the gallery and I was amazed at the variety of frames and mats available and how knowledgeable they were. I wasn't sure what I wanted and got some great assistance too. The framing was fantastic and the art gallery itself was beautiful. I would not hesitate to recommend their framing services to anyone wanting to frame artwork or photos, I even framed an old poster. Their prices are very reasonable and the quality was the best. more

Great Place for a Reception or Cocktail Party 2/19/2009

This art gallery is a great place for a reception, cocktail party, or other event. We had an after-work party there and everyone commented on what a beautiful gallery it was, how hip and fun. We also found the staff easy to work with; they were helpful and accessible. The airy, multi-leveled space made it possible for our guests to browse the beautiful art, chat with friends on a comfy couch, or mill about the crowd. I also like to drop in periodically to see the art, because it changes regularly, and ranges from abstract to figurative, as well as from photography to drawings, to paintings, and to sculpture. more

Beautiful gallery and exceptional event venue 8/1/2008

I recently held a small gala event at the Paul Mahder Gallery and was incredibly pleased with the venue. I was initially drawn to this gallery by the beautiful artwork over a wide range of media and the inviting space. All guests were impressed by the layout, presentation, and beauty. Working with Paul Mahder and his staff to plan and coordinate the event was a treat. They couldn't have been more pleasant, friendly, and helpful. I highly recommend this venue for an elegant event or as a place to stop by to some gorgeous pieces of art. I will be back again and again! Pros: Ambience, parking, service more
