At Westwood Gallery, owners Mike and Lore Fitzsimmons celebrate their love for beautiful artwork with museum-quality preservation and framing of paintings and pictures. Everyone on staff boasts a background in art, allowing them to match a painting's style and period with the perfect frame and also consider the decor back at the customer's house. They can create original oil paintings from photographs, restore weathered paintings and photos, and brighten up bathroom vanities and bedroom walls with custom-framed mirrors. As longtime residents of Westwood, the owners promote the local creative community by hosting gallery parties, setting up photography exhibits, and challenging passersby to define "art" in one sentence or less.
Framed by Kosal's archivists comb a vast inventory of conservation materials to retrieve mats and mouldings that best showcase each client's valuables. By giving special attention to each custom framing order, the archivists carry on a tradition that began when the shop first began preserving artwork, keepsakes, and entire refrigerator doors. From in-store to at-home consultations, staff members guide customers toward the framing materials that optimize beauty and longevity. In addition to framing, Framed by Kosal's specialists offer photo restoration and large-format photo printing, and stock the store with a wide selection of art.

NatureScapes supplies customers with greenery, flowers, and ornamental accents for any horticultural endeavor, with an emphasis on outdoor container gardens. Cloaked in white shingles and skirted in natural wooden planters, NatureScapes’ shop invites aspiring plantologists to explore their vast and varied options. Blooms abound for those wishing to choreograph a riotous dance of color in homes or yards, ranging from florist-quality orchids that can flourish for up to six months ($29+) to outdoor plants including organic herbs, vegetables, decorative hanging baskets, and select trees and shrubs ($4.99+). With improved control over soil conditions and pests, container garden plants ($4.99+) give brown thumbs a second or third chance to apologize to nature and earn valuable dirt cred. Those who have already defected to the rewarding yet growth-stilted world of outdoor pottery and garden ornaments ($59+) will find plenty of potential replacements for a wandering garden yeti, and urban dwellers delight in the selection of indoor plants and pottery ($15+), any of which can be potted on-site by the nature-nurturing staff.

Rockwell Art and Framing has been involved in the community since 1987. In 2002, Stephen Rockwell Desloge acquired multiple art galleries and framing stores, consolidating them into one entity at multiple locations.
Among the paintings, sculptures, and mixed-media works of art displayed at each gallery, professional staffers perform a variety of services, such as custom framing and restoration. They're also happy to provide in-home consultations, picture hanging, personalized portraits, art appraisal, or custom commissions. Three Rockwell shops are home to galleries that display rotating exhibits from featured artists. These exhibits range from paintings and photography to museum-quality documents and artifacts, such as an 1842 edition of the Declaration of Independence. Rockwell Art and Framing also actively supports the local community and beyond. Among other things, the shop has collected hundreds of donated art for a charity sale that raised over $25,000 for Save the Children, an organization that has helped thousands of families recover after the earthquake in Haiti.
