Rossier's Art Gallery houses paintings and prints by local and internationally recognized artists. Pieces feature a range of subjects, from landscapes, florals, and wildlife to sports and vistas of Pittsburgh?s sweeping savannahs. The staff also curates an extensive collection of household decor, such as wire sculptures, glass art, and paperweights. But one of the gallery's most creative spheres is its custom-framing department. Customers bring their own artwork and family portraits to be encircled by Rossier's sophisticated array of frames, but they don't stop at the two-dimensional. The staff is equally adept at framing memorabilia such as sports jerseys, medals, and military flags.

Photographer Charlene Potts specializes in capturing some of life’s biggest milestones: new babies, engagements, weddings, high-school grads, and her specialty of pet portraits. Prior to each session, Charlene meets with subjects and furry family members in their homes to discuss personal style and various wall-art options in their space. Her portrait sessions generally last 90 minutes, with a follow-up appointment a few weeks later to review prints. Held 10 days after each session, the follow-up appointment includes a viewing of prints and selection of favorite images. She also provides an online gallery where family, friends, and online avatars who happen to be art critics can view the pictures. She shares her craft in other ways, too. She regularly leads photography classes in which she teaches students about composition, exposure, and camera operations.
