What we do


At Rothwell Gallery and Framing Ottawa, we custom design beautiful, high quality frames to display your most treasured pieces. Our showroom hosts a large selection of frames, from minimalist floating-frames, to ornate gold mouldings; from traditional varnished hardwoods to rustic, barn board-like fixtures. Our mouldings come in a range of widths, depths and high quality finishes. Our specialists will work with you to design a piece that suits both your style and your budget.

One for the books

If it's good enough for the Queen...

We were honoured to frame this commemorative plaque and the depicted piece of original music written and performed for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Sgt. Katherine Buckland, in commemoration of Buckland being the first female piper to perform in front of Her Majesty! In this photograph, the music piece is being presented to Her Majesty as a gift....no big deal.

Unframing a piece is half the excitement

When Natalie went to reframe this painting for her own collection, she discovered another hiding on the other side. Her new challenge was to design a frame that could showcase both sides if she so chose.

Art. Frame. Repeat.

Many of the original artworks that we sell have already been framed by yours truly! Not only does framing add a layer of visual interest and personalization to a work of art, it helps protect the work as well.
