Some artists who use our stretchers or who's work has been retrofitted by conservators onto our art supports


Dear John & Team,
Thank you for your beautiful craftsmanship + hard work, I truly love working on your canvases- they are ART itself !! I am so thankful + appreciative to be painting on them! Keep doing what you're doing!!

The painting on the cover (of the card sent) was completed while I still lived in SF + was painted on your canvas :)
U.S. Secretary of state, Schultz, purchased it + it is now hanging in his SF home!
Dear John Annesley,
I have been a professional painter for more than thirty-five years. During that time I have used canvas stretcher bars manufactured by many reputable companies. I must tell you, however, that your Museum Bars are, by far, the best that I have found, and I use them for every major painting. Thank you for your practical innovation and excellent craftsmanship. I heartily recommend them to every serious artist who desires the best that is available on the market today. My sincere best wishes to you and your firm.

Just wanted to let you know how much Bob (and I) appreciate your help with this time pressing situation. Bob really respects you and holds your friendship close to his heart. You have always done beautiful things for him and he is in awe every time he gets to paint on your stretcher bars....
All the best and thanks again,

As I was carrying a painting in London down Piccadilly to the Royal Academy of Arts, I was stopped by so many people, especially artists. Actually, they were not so much interested in the front of my painting as the back - they all admired your beautiful, practical, and sturdy stretcher bars. As one passer-by said, "This is a fine piece of furniture!"
I would never buy my stretchers anywhere else!
Many thanks for your great work,
Monroe Hodder

I bought a few supports from y'all last year and loved them. Your work is wonderful! Now I would like to order more.... Thank you!

John, you are a master craftman. The canvases arrived safely. Thank you for the beautiful work you did on them. We will be in touch when John's part of the 'work' is done. John wants me to send you one of his books ( The Work of John Powell - His Life 'Visions of Paradise') to say thank you.

I received the stretchers on Friday and am delighted with the excellent quality of your work. I'm looking forward to painting on them. With thanks and best regards,

Received the stretchers a couple of days ago. They look great. And assembled to boot. Thanks so much,
Tom Pappas, Provincetown, Massachuetts

They arrived last week and they are absolutely beautiful! I have them mounted and have already started in paint. Thank you, thank you. Best regards,

Everything looks great, sizes and shipping info...Thanks much for being so wonderful to work with and for making such amazingly beautiful and well crafted floater frames. Everything in our lives should be so well made and people so kind to work with. Best regards,

The floater frame did arrive, and looks terrific! I glued it together last night, and mounted my painting a few minutes ago. The woodwork is fantastic. Thanks for your care and patience.

Just wanted to let you know I received the panels and they are just perfect. Your craftsmanship is appreciated and they arrived flawless due to your care in packaging. After working with them a bit, I hope to be ordering more! Thanks for your personal attention,

Yesterday, I finally had time to unpack the birch panel you made for me. It is absolutely, unequivocally, manifestly the most elegant, exquisite, beautiful art panel I have ever seen. I was very reluctant to lay down the first layer of gesso, it is so gorgeous. Many, many thanks for the remarkable quality of the panel. I will never order from anyone else.
Allison Atwill, Santa Barbara, CA

The canvases and panels arrived today and they are BEAUTIFUL!!! OMG, they are almost to gorgeous to paint on....but I will. I'm leaving for a painting trip in the Smoke Creek Desert north of Reno. These canvases/panels will just do the trick. Thanks again.
