For 20 years, the husband and wife team at Fine Art & Frame have brightened local walls with posters, original art, and frames. Their cheerful, colorful shop is a hub for art aficionados. Crafters and artists can browse a small selection of art supplies or just drop by to chat with owner, Maureen, who designs and sells jewelry out of the shop. Hanging in grids from the bright green walls, a collection of paintings, photography, and etchings by local artists can go home with shoppers for a trial run—if the piece doesn't suit your style or match your dog's eyes, it can go back to the store. The staff can also elevate two-dimensional items into artful wall displays with professional framing services. Their frame styles run the gamut from ornate mouldings with bright mats to spare, modern wood or metal.
