At Jerry’s Artarama, resident artists draw on personal experience and channel the shop's four decades in business to help create works in nearly any medium. Shelves bravely bear the weight of multitudinous tubes of paint ranging from traditional oil paints made from 150-year-old processes, to easy-to-use acrylic pigments. Artists can wield a Mejillo TruColor palette to serve as a launching pad for paints, or take up PrismaColor colored pencils to add vivid pigmentation to sketches. For more specialized projects, customers can stock up on the store's street-art supplies and screen-printing kits.
Meanwhile, the framing professionals at Jerry’s Artarama navigate a bounty of glass, mats, mounting, and moulding options to personalize the framing of photos, watercolor landscapes, and napping bats. Frame options include the warm whorls of wooden frames as well as silver, black, or gold aluminum frames to complement any work's color scheme.
Lolavie Photography was named after the French expression Lo Lavie which translates to Laughing throughout life. I could not find any other name to better describe what I do. To capture those memories on film.

Rich-colored wood and contemporary metal frames find their purpose at Creative Framing & Mirrors as the shop's artisans mold pieces to fit customers' cherished keepsakes. A framer chooses from a selection of more than 2,000 frames, including those with intricate designs and hidden compartments to store backup photos, which complain less loudly than backup quarterbacks. Photographs, childhood keepsakes, and stamp collections can look even more attractive with personalized interiors that boast vibrant colors, fun shapes, and fitted borders.
Not content to stick to framing services alone, Creative Framing & Mirrors artisans can also transmit images or photographs onto small or large stretched canvases. Staff members employ their tech-savvy to operate a large-scale printer and then carefully tug the subject from all corners to stretch it to an ideal size.

Even trouble spots vanish beneath the specialized lighting, and a retouching session afterward brings out each subject's inner centerfold with light airbrushing and editing of any blemishes. Customers can choose from more than a dozen custom themes ranging from bridal and military to creative arrangements such as Moulin Rouge, Pink Candy, and Pin-Up.

Husband-and-wife team Nolan and Lucinda opened Nolan Conley Photography in 1984, capturing stunning images of clients with a range of expertise befitting all picture-worthy occasions.
