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.
