Kicking off the Fall Season at Spokane Gallery & Framing!

Have you heard? Pacific Flyway Gallery is now Spokane Gallery and Framing!

At our 30th anniversary party last year we announced a new phase for the next 30 years that starts with a name change.
We will now be Spokane Gallery, a name that better reflects the direction the gallery is headed in. A move that indicates our strong support for the World Class artists that inhabit and create in the NW and our area specifically. It has been our honor and privilege to serve them and you, our loyal local art collector and enthusiast!

Our New Sign is up and so is our New Name!
To kick off our Fall season, The Spokane Gallery will be sponsoring The Galleria in the Artist Corner at ValleyFest.
Sept 23,24 & 25 at Mirabeau Park in Spokane Valley.

The Galleria will feature art, sculpture, pottery & jewelry from many local and regional artists.
The Artist Corner is new this year at ValleyFest, it will feature many local artists displaying and selling their work from their booths, it will also feature a "Pro-Am" sponsored by Flootie, the Pro-Am is a unique event where an amateur artist is teamed up with a local professional artist to create a collaborative art work in a limited amount of time. Then, the art work will be made available for sale.

To see more about the artists and activities at the Artist Corner click on this link:

We're easy to find, right next to the shelter at Mirabeau Park!

We would like to shout out our appreciation to the Spokane Valley Arts Council for sponsoring The Artist Corner, and for bringing the local art community to ValleyFest 2016.

What kind of Treasures do you have ?
You may also have numerous collectibles that have been hiding in a box in the basement or attic, maybe it's time to bring them into the light of day and and appreciate the unique qualities of your artifacts, collectibles or mementos.  

Framing with Custom Etched Glass:
A unique approach to a personalized touch, and nice design sense for an added dimensional quality, you can make out the soft white waves etched into the glass in the upper right hand corner.

Again, a closer look at the photo below will illustrate the etched glass in the lighter color creating a neat sense of depth in the finished piece.

Custom Hand Painted Mattes:
Here's a nice example of how we can personalize your print into a one of a kind work of art, matching the colors in the art, we extended the composition to enlarge the presentation and again creating more levels of depth.

Building substantial Custom Frames:
When using a single frame molding isn't quite enough to capture the dynamics of the art that your framing, we specialize in building through "stacking" numerous molding to build dynamic big deep framing presentation.

Pictured below is the finished piece, a Linda Besse original with the dynamic stacked, multi-level frame with brass title plaque.

"Fresh from the Framer,"  Treasure out did herself with this 3-D two sided transparent shadow box, creating this impressive presentation for her customer's mementos from a recent trip to China.

Look closely and you'll see each of the paper elements in the display is mounted on a different level created by 5 sheets of glass.

If you look closely at the interior base and side of the framing, you'll see spacers separating each pane of glass by about 1/4 inch, these spacers are covered with carefully cut pieces of a Chinese news paper the customer included with their mementos, Treasure used this creatively to space the glass and enhance the cultural feel of the piece.

This presentation concept works very well to allow the viewer to appreciate both sides of the documents, in this case, post cards and event tickets etc.
