There are lot's of exciting things happening at the gallery this summer!
We have great new art works by many of our artists featured in our "Summer Showcase". 
Also, we are busy in the frame shop with exciting innovative new approaches to framing all kinds of art, mementos, collectibles and more.

Richard Warrington has been a successful artist in the Spokane area for over 40 years, we are pleased to feature his metal sculptures, and have some recent large works that lend themselves for outdoor and indoor installations. 
Richard features abstract human forms and contemporary design in his work.

"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.

transparent two sided shadow box.
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.
