Dogs rarely get lonesome at Dogtown Cincinnati. That's because they'll be spending too much time playing with the other dogs and the staff. Whether inside or outside, pups have ample space to run, jump, and play statue, and even overnight, it's like a big slumber party, where everyone bunks down together and they're under the watchful eye of the faithful human crew. Owners can also schedule grooming appointments or training sessions, while cats stay for the day or overnight in their own private area.
For nearly a quarter of a century, the hardworking artisans at Haney Custom Framing have protected precious family heirlooms, artwork, and photographs with customized framing and preservation projects. Craftspeople pour their creative energies into each piece, selecting fine woods and materials for traditional moulding or contemporary frames that add new dimension to photos, artwork, and Ivy League degrees previously just duct-taped to office walls. Haney Custom Framing claims much of its business from a string of dedicated returning customers, winning over their loyalty with their expert preservation and curating of prints and canvases, as well as their mastery of framework.
Owner Emily Momohara and her staff at Lucky Cat Studio are masters of art within art. In addition to their classic portrait photography, they take snapshots of paintings, sculptures, theatrical performances, and other works, whether they're situated inside a studio or at a separate location. Some of these images might even be of the process—an artist sketching on canvas or considering schematics, for example. Momohara also puts her editing experience to work by restoring old or damaged photographs. Using negatives or high-quality scans of the image, she fixes blemishes and fading to produce clarified color and black-and-white versions.
At Ernestography, it's up to you whether you'd like to be in front or behind the camera. The photography studio offers a mixture of portrait options, including outdoor family sessions, weddings, and special events, as well as classes. Students can enhance their knowledge of DSLR cameras by taking photos around town, as opposed to being cooped up in a classroom.
For 50 years, the owners and staffers of Plaza Artist Materials & Picture Framing have encouraged the artists of their community. They visit local fairs and set up booths for kids to color and craft, and they do workshops, demos, and classes for artists of every age. As their name implies, they also outfit art makers of all skill levels with top-of-the-line materials, such as Gamblin oil paints, Prismacolor pens and markers, and custom frames perfect for saving favorite art pieces or memorializing a sibling's failure to color within the lines.
