House of Frames has the area's largest selection of picture framing materials and an expert staff, each with more than 15 years of experience. We frame absolutely anything, from prints and needlework to photography and paintings. We'll treat your child's masterwork and a museum quality piece with the same careful attention. Our quality far exceeds the Other Guys, but our prices do not.

Join us this TOMORROW, May 4th, for a talk with Dan Gottlieb. “Designing for Art: From Galleries to Your Home”

A reception will begin at 2pm, talk starts at 3pm.

“Fittingly for a Gemini, I’ve been blessed with two sides to my creative life: public and private. FIGURE | GROUND is the public display of my intensely private studio work. The careful arrangement of these pictures is the result of a collaborative dialogue between the Gallery and my display-obsessed mind. My public life with art has been 40+ years as an exhibition and museum designer creating spaces for and experiences with art. In this informal conversation, I’ll discuss guidelines and challenges of installing art, whether in a public museum space or your own living room. Craven Allen’s John Bloedorn will also offer his perspecitve on the importance of framing as it relates to curation and design.
Questions will be welcome.”

A customer shared this image of our frame in their beautiful space!

A key ingredient in the Vesper cocktail, Kina Lillet was featured in License to Kill, and discontinued soon after.

Fun fact: Keith was an extra in License to Kill, you can spot him by the pool at the wedding party.

Damian Stamer’s epic painting “South Lowell 109” sized 72 x 95 has found a new home with collector Donna Preiss!

The work has never been on public display. Donna and her daughter Amy Preiss-Barger accompanied “Art of the State” author Liza Roberts on a tour of galleries and studios, and met Craven Allen’s John Bloedorn and Damian at his studio, where they got an inside look at the artist’s process.

Great turnout last night for Damian Stamer’s artist talk at the Carolina Country Club. Introduced by Craven Allen’s John Bloedorn, Damian discussed his relationship with artificial intelligence and its role in his most recent and ongoing body of work, “Collaborations”. We are happy that one of the pieces on display at the event has already found a home with a collector.
