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.

At the "I Can Do It!" conference, participants learn from a collection of dynamic speakers and authors on ways to strengthen the body, mind, and spirit. On Friday night, renowned keynote speaker Dr. Wayne W. Dyer will speak about how to achieve a more fulfilling life by shifting one's focus from ambition to meaning. Saturday's line-up features several regular Oprah contributors, including Marianne Williamson)—who will address the spiritual, emotional, and psychological roots of weight loss—and Cheryl Richardson, who will teach you how to reprogram your unconscious mind so that it stops getting stuck in zero-gravity elevators. Sunday showcases an entirely different lineup of inspirational all-stars as they cover topics such as Chinese face reading, treating health problems with intuition, and how to become happy for no reason without lethal exposure to Joker venom. Over the course the day, conference-goers will be free to amble amongst morning and evening keynote speakers, topping their motivational parfait with whatever electives strike their soul-fancy.
Quality photos capture piercing looks, toothy smiles, and elusive dodo sightings much more efficiently then papier-mâché sculptures. At studiolano, photographer April Catalano utilizes her many years of experience to photograph subjects with a microscopic attention to detail. During a one-hour session at studiolano’s fully equipped studio, April will rattle off 50–75 shots of multiple poses with the speed and precision of a camera-fitted, laser-guided cheetah. Striking images are artfully captured with an uncommon eye to provide game-changing glimpses of the subject’s pleasant disposition that can’t be replicated with an emoticon-riddled letter of recommendation. After the photo shoot, customers place their package order from the comfort of their plush, indoor hammocks with online proof viewing and ordering.
