At Dallas Frame & Arts, expert staffers navigate a selection of more than 4,000 frame mouldings to help customers find one that showcases their prints, matches their decor, and fits their budget. Their diverse styles range from rustic wood and modern metal to ornate gold leaf and whimsical heart and oval shapes. The staff also taps into 25 years of experience to design frames and mats that fit and preserve your prints. In addition, they can create custom shadowboxes to display sentimental objects or secure grandpa's consistently misplaced reading glasses.
The shop also stocks artwork, prints, and posters from internationally famous names such as Thomas Kinkade, as well as regional artists including Alex Halliburton, Jack Ellis, and Robert Bailey.
Kamena Gallery's keen-eyed staff helps customers navigate more than 1,500 custom moulding samples, including the shop's own exclusive lines. They focus, especially, on proper styles and tones in order to safeguard keepsakes in a fashionable manner. Along with its oasis of framing options, Kamena houses a gallery to showcase the works of local artists, as well as Chinese calligraphy, photography, and poster and print catalogues.
Angular windows surround a 190-metre ribbon of steel that pays homage to the North Saskatchewan River and aurora borealis; the three-floor, 85,000-square-foot Art Gallery of Alberta is itself a work of art. And though Los Angeles–based architect Randall Stout's design gives the gallery a distinctly contemporary feel, the AGA ranks among the oldest cultural institutions in Alberta, showcasing artwork since 1924. A permanent collection of more than 6,000 pieces engages visitors alongside a selection of exhibitions ranging from Icons of Modernism to Andy Warhol: Manufactured.
Connecting people, art, and ideas, AGA organizes programming such as talks, films, and tours, as well as youth and adult art classes. The gallery also encompasses the Terrace Café and Zinc Restaurant, where Executive Chef Dave Omar prepares dishes with local artisan ingredients.
We help people proudly display their life treasures through creative frame designs, superb quality workmanship and excellent service – and assist to discover the beauty of the world through fine art with a diverse selection of originals and giclees by national, international, and professional local artists.
Run by designer Jenna Herbut and her brother Chandler, also a designer, the fairs showcase the work of more than 140 Canadian artisans and designers at events Merge magazine has described as "the craft sale for the next generation." The laid-back emporium?that has received tons of positive press?thrums with the energy of desingers such as Eve and Enoch, adhesif clothing, and MMS Brittles as they enthusiastically promote their wares. Music serenades ears wandering between booths, and homemade creations from vendors such as Monkey Butter sate hunger with snacks that are as sweet and savoury as a love poem written in worcestershire sauce.
As an extension of her mission to improve designers' livelihoods, Jenna channels her background in marketing into a parallel venture Make It! University, which helps artisans hone their business models.
