Our History

Kurian & Co. / Frame & Display is a framing and custom fabrication operation founded in 2009. The team is led by founder and proprietor Gerald Kurian, who began working in the picture framing industry in the early 1990's.

Since relocating to New York City in 1997, Gerald has collaborated extensively with both artists and galleries to produce shows, while also working with individuals to create unique and special frames, exhibition furniture, and custom-fabricated elements to suit their needs.

Our Team

Gerald and his team of skilled craftspeople have extensive experience across woodworking, finishing, fabrication, construction, art handling, conservation and installation.

Many of them are artists themselves with their own studio practice; they thus bring to their work at Kurian & Co. a particular sensitivity gleaned from working with and around art in a variety of settings.

In addition to making frames, Gerald and his team are also highly skilled in archivally handling artwork and using museum grade standards of conservation framing while fitting art into frames. Their extensive experience with a wide range of archival techniques and materials will ensure that your artwork is handled and preserved for display in the best way possible for now and the future.
