The Collectors Wall Fine Art Gallery, a working gallery and framing venture owned by art enthusiasts Len and Kaye Gionfriddo and helmed by their son Gregg, has paired admirers with art and art with frames for more than a quarter of a century. The gallery experts outline posters and photographs with simple or elaborate frames and matting, and then top art with nonglare or UV glass so that it can be hang beautifully above mantels, in hallways, and off rearview mirrors. Framers also aid patrons in designing shadow boxes for jersey and sports-memorabilia displays and adding elegantly beveled frames to mirrors. In addition, The Collectors Wall sells rare prints, posters, and the brushwork of accomplished artists.
Plush mattresses from brands such as Serta, Simmons, Latex Bliss, and iComfort line the expansive show room at Sleep King, where same-day delivery ensures clients can choose a slumber surface and sleep on it that same night. Mattress materials run the gamut in styles, from traditional innerspring to body-conforming memory foam and muscle-relaxing latex foam. After testing these comfortable surfaces by simulating a night terror atop each one, visitors can peruse Sleep King’s selection of headboards, frames, and futons from Gold Bond.
Much like professional skydivers, wily coyotes, and other careers that involve a degree of danger, most professional glassblowers aren’t self-taught. Joshua Poll, however, learned to harness the glass furnace all by himself, today imparting more than a decade of self-taught experience to Zen Glass Studios, where he and fellow glass smith David Walker create custom works of art by hand. Together they shape glass into authentic and unique pieces, including custom glassware and jewelry to wear while meeting a spouse’s goldfish for the first time.
Within their studio, Joshua and David teach workshops and classes, during which students survey basic to advanced glass-blowing techniques, crafting their own handmade objects such as ornaments, beer glasses, and vases. The duo also runs a full glassblower training program, which follows a syllabus structured to arm all students with all the necessary skills to set out on their own in the industry, just as Joshua did all those years ago.
Charlie Parker set his clay career spinning in 1967 at age 14 when he worked as a part-time clay-mixer at Minnesota Clay Company. As his passion began to flourish, he chased it to the studio of Warren Westerberg, working as an apprentice and molding himself into a master of form and expression. Today, Charlie's 3,600-square-foot workshop offers plenty of space for classes and open-studio time. Under his guidance, aspiring artists of all experience levels make their own projects from Continental and Laguna clays available for purchase. Charlie's artisans also offer their own pieces for sale in the gallery, including figurines and bottles guaranteed to be free of tricksome genies.
