Framer to be featured at meeting - from Tahoe Daily Tribune
       The Tahoe Art League will host Todd Borg as its speaker/demonstrator at the Feb. 9 meeting.
Borg will be speaking about how framing choices impact the marketability of art and how gallery directors make decisions about which artists to represent.
       He will also try to provide answers to questions artists have asked him over the years.
Borg, with his wife Kit, has been a frame shop owner since 1979; first in Minnesota, now in Tahoe - Borg & Night Master Framing. In 1991 Borg was one of the first framers in Northern California to earn the Certified Picture Framer designation.
       Borg & Night is the framer for several art galleries and has framing in many diverse venues including the White House, the U.S. Senate, the national Palace in Pakistan, and dozens of corporate collections and museums nationwide.
       Since 1992 Borg has been an adjunct faculty member at Lake Tahoe Community College, where he teaches matting and framing.Borg also has a special understanding of the process of making art. Besides being married to an artist, he is the author of four mystery novels.
       Set in Tahoe, Borg's mystery thrillers have been critically acclaimed in dozens of newspapers and periodicals coast-to-coast. They have been included on national Top 5 and Top 10 lists and have won several awards, including a Ben Franklin Award.

       Members, guests and potential new members are all invited to the Tahoe Art League meetings, which are from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Art Building, 3062 Lake Tahoe Blvd., between the South Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce and the Senior Center.
