The craftspeople at Art & Framing by Munro Gallery draw on more than 45 years of experience as they frame cherished items and curate fine arts and crafts. With skillful hands, they swaddle artwork, diplomas, memorabilia, and photos using elements plucked from an arsenal of more than 2,500 mouldings and 1,000 mat samples. When they aren't adorning pictures with princely garb, they stock their shelves with paintings, sculptures, and jewelry that give residences and outfits more personality than Elton John’s herd of peacocks.
