Custom Framing Tips

The past few months have changed our behaviors.  Staying safe during COVID19 peaks kept us home and cooking more.  As we emerge, are there areas of you home you now want to refresh?

  1. Missing your loved ones?  Let’s create a gallery wall of family photos and other key treasures.  Get your photos off your phone and on your walls!
  2. Working from home or at home more?  Let’s update and refresh your walls!
  3. Cooking more?  Let’s frame recipes and other fun kitchen treats. 

Tom chatted with WKNO FM’s Kacky Walton to discuss custom framing tips related to these three behavior changes.  Want to know more, click on the link below.  Audio clip is about 20 minutes.

Judaic Art at Memphis Art Gallery

Many thanks to Jewish Scene Magazine for featuring metal artist Steve Bronstein.  Steve has been a featured artist at our gallery for a little over a year.  He is one of our more than sixty artists on exhibit, and one of three metal artists on exhibit.  

As editor Susan Nieman captured in the article:

Today, he and his helpers create functional and sculptural ironwork that appeals to a younger generation who enjoy his contemporary take on timeless pieces. Each piece is individually crafted so no two pieces are identical.

The Blackthorne team uses traditional and contemporary tools including turn-of-the-century pieces he has acquired. “And if something on the old machinery breaks,” he said, “I can just make a new part.”

Steve’s art is on exhibit at T Clifton Art Memphis or see more on our website (click here) .  Yes, we do offer delivery and curbside pickup.
