In-Home Art and Framing Consultations

We offer in-home and in-office consultations to help you with art selection, art placement, and framing coordination with your existing decor. Many of our customers have enjoyed assistance with using their existing art well, finding new art they love, and selecting beautiful framing treatments for their art. We can even deliver and install your pictures!

Art Selection

We’ll guide you through our varied art selection and help you think about what type of art will be appropriate in terms of color, scale, and style. We have access to thousands of images, both originals and reproductions. You can even take art home to try it out before you buy!

We love helping people find art they love. Our art selection is quite eclectic, from inexpensive reproductions to original graphics and paintings.

Paper Conservation

We work with a paper conservator who can help with damaged artwork and family heirlooms with his art conservation or document conservation services.

Photo Restoration and Printing

We work with a couple of photo restorers who can do amazing things with repairing heirloom photographs and making copies.  They can repair photo damage like creases, tears, spots, and missing pieces.

Oil Painting Cleaning, Repair, and Restoration

We work with an experienced restorer to bring your valued oil paintings back to life.  Your oil painting will be cleaned and new varnish will be added for protection.  Damaged  oil paintings can be repaired, and new varnish can be added to protect your oil painting.

Pickup and Delivery

If you have art that needs special handling or is too big for your car, we will arrange pickup and delivery. We make it easy.

We can finish the job by hanging your framed art in just the right place so it fits into your decor perfectly.  Our picture hanging service has saved many a headache, and has probably saved some marriages.
