Charcoal, Soft Pastel on Cotton Rag Paper | 2021
Music is a key component to artist Sara Marlowe Hall’s work. One of Hall’s morning routines has been to warm up with a series of drawings to an album before she started painting. This new series, Drawing to Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou in the Morning, is a nod to the musician whose music Hall finds so settling and relaxing.
Born in Addis Ababa in 1923 to a wealthy family, Guèbrou faced many challenges in her life, including a time as an Italian prisoner of war during the second Italo-Ethiopian War. After the war, she studied violin and was later appointed musical director of the band of the Imperial BodyGuard. Her first record was released in 1967 and the Emahoy Tsege Mariam Music (EMF) Foundation has been set up to help children in need both in Africa and in the Washington, D.C. metro area to study music.
Sara Marlowe Hall invites you to listen to the titled songs as you contemplate each piece in this series, to mirror how each piece was made. She will be donating a percentage of sales from this series to the EMF Foundation, helping children get a music education through organizations located in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and Jerusalem.

Framing & Mounting
Our frames are produced from the best quality wood, primarily from Italy. Each is custom cut and assembled by hand to fit your art. Hanging hardware included!
THIN GALLERY FRAME
This modern profile was designed for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, our slim mouldings provide a clean, sharp frame for your art, and allows all focus to be on your gorgeous work.
3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
