Everyone has a different vision of how their living space should look, which is why ART on 5th fills its three-level, 6,000-square-foot gallery with art to suit all tastes. Works by notable names such as Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, and Theodor Seuss Geisel—better known as Dr. Seuss—rub shoulders with rotating collections from some 60 lesser-known artists.

In addition to displaying fine paintings, ART on 5th offers custom-framing services, and backs each of its frames with a lifetime guarantee. The store’s artisans meticulously choose a flattering frame for each piece from more than 3,000 styles—helping artwork mesh stylistically with its destination, be it a living-room wall or an endless hall of mirrors. They eschew colored, paper mats in favor of neutral-toned, hand-wrapped linen mats, leaving some wiggle room between art and frame and imbuing each piece with richness and depth. Each frame is hung with kevlar, a bulletproof material that prevents damage caused by rusted hanging wires and showboating ’80s action-movie stars.

At Quality Frames & Art, meticulous staff members gingerly unfurl customers' art before smoothing it into place inside a custom-made frame or eco-friendly molding from Larson-Juhl. Interior-design power teams of mats and frames transform posters into easy-to-hang art, and sleek modern or decadent baroque molding convinces mirrors to gleam brighter than a comet after a dental appointment. The team can preserve memories by encasing jewelry, instruments, and other collectibles in striking shadowboxes for vintage flair. In addition to matting and mounting photos, staff members can repair clients' damaged frames and cracked glass. For patrons robing their walls from scratch, the shop also stocks paintings by more than a dozen local artists, including landscapes, portraits, and still-life scenes.

Sometimes it's not the price of a piece of art that makes it valuable, so much as the sentiment attached to it. Nobody knows this better than the team of framers at Fastframe, who've designed custom frames for everything from children's artwork to signed sports equipment and everything in-between. With a staff that includes two certified picture framers and a stock that includes 3D shadow boxes as well as museum-quality mats and moldings, the shop is well equipped to handle any framing need, whether you're looking to protect a piece of fine art from acid and UV-damage or simply want to show off a nearly complete crossword puzzle in a decorative frame. What's more, Fastframe backs all of its work with a lifetime guarantee on craftsmanship and a 30-day guarantee on design, to ensure your prized possessions are preserved to your satisfaction.

What makes your business stand out?

(Parentheses) Photography caters to women. As women ourselves, we know what makes a woman feel beautiful and we strive to make you look your absolute best! We not only offer professional hair and makeup, but we also offer a styling service, where we take the style you are trying to achieve and your sizes and create a look unique to you for a one-of-a-kind shoot.

What inspired you to start this business?

My love of photography, fashion, and people [created] (Parentheses) Photography. My belief in helping every woman see the beauty in themselves inspired me to shoot women.

What is your most popular offering?

My clients usually purchase a canvas of their most favorite image from the shoot to display somewhere in their home, and they usually order a photo book of the rest to take on-the-go to share with friends [and] family.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?

I've had many people who have traveled from afar just to come and shoot with me. I've even had someone fly from California and someone else drive all the way from Georgia. I think someone who sees the value in what you provide and is willing to sacrifice that amount of time and energy just to be in front of your lens and have that experience with you, is just hands down amazing.

What’s your favorite part about your job?

My favorite part about my job is the in-person viewing [and] ordering sessions. I get to have my client in front of me while they view the images we created together for the first time. Some women are shocked because I have brought out a side of them that they have never seen before. Others have cried and have told me that they have never thought of themselves as something so beautiful. And I've had others that didn't even want to leave their viewing session because they wanted to keep looking at themselves. I LOVE that I help people see themselves in a whole new way. It is definitely an ego booster!

Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

The majority of my shoots are with women who have never ever done this type of thing before. Most of them are mothers, businesswomen, or housewives who are always taking care of the people around them and worrying about themselves last. So, when they come to us, we make sure to take very good care of them!

What makes your business stand out?

Years of experience, continued education, and top professional equipment. We know how to create beautiful portraits in all situations.

What inspired you to start this business?

Creativity and innovation have always been my strengths, but I also love technology. Photography blends all of those things together, enabling us to wonderfully capture and freeze moments in time. Our photography business began 12 years ago, when I started creating digital sports posters with the action shots we were getting at our boys' games. There was an immediate demand for more posters from parents on other teams, so a business was born with overnight success. It was that same year that we discovered the magical world of portraiture, and have been immersed in it ever since.

What is your most popular offering?

The beauty of outdoor portraits for families and children tend to be the favorites among our clients. We also do lots of senior and newborn portraits as well as a lot of event and team photography.

Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We are family owned and have three experienced photographers and two graphic artists at your service.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?

I always have customers tell me how much they love their images, but I especially love it when senior girls are amazed by how beautiful they look.

What’s your favorite part about your job?

Regardless of what kind of shoot I'm doing, my favorite part is creating awesome images.
