The artisans at Express Frames preserve photos, artwork, and mementos with more than 2,000 custom and archival frames by brands such as Larson-Juhl and Roma Moulding. They cut mats with a precise, computerized process, and offer more than 10 types of glass—including nonreflective glass, museum-quality glass, and Plexiglas. The art in the shop dances off framed mirrors by Uttermost, and staffers display signed Steiner Sports prints of athletes hitting homeruns or successfully untangling a whole bunch of Christmas lights.
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.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, picture perfect clients pose in the bright camera room, smiling amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following the photo shoot, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
Katty Cedeno, owner of Fun Creation Studio, sees the creative process as a kind of informal therapy for the stresses of modern life. There's something meditative about turning raw white ceramic into a uniquely colorful artwork, and something restorative about doing so alongside friends or family members. The process is as simple as can be: first, choose a mug, a bowl, or perhaps a dragon figurine. Then it's time to paint, choosing from a rainbow of colors to paint messages, shapes, and words of praise for the World's Greatest Mug Fan. The studio assistants are there to offer help and advice along the way. At the end of the session, pieces are turned over to the staff to receive a clear glaze and a relaxing sauna session in the kiln, after which they'll be food-safe.
Back in 1959, Joe Spirko and his wife Linda started a tiny fruit stand, home to fresh-grown fruits and veggies, hand-cut flowers, and some seed packets. From those humble beginnings, Strawberry Blossom & Ploch's grew quickly, expanding and then relocating to accommodate local demand. Today, the home and garden center occupies more than five acres of land, where visitors are invited to meander through greenhouses, ask questions, and stock up on black gold: dirt. Indoor and outdoor plants can be found, as well as ground-cover, bulbs, and everything to make the exterior of your home beautiful, including tasteful lawn furniture and accessories for grilling.
