This week, Allied Arts features OKCityCard partner Framin’ Gallery, a family-owned custom picture framing store in Edmond. Owners Kelly and Sherrye are known for high-quality work on services including painting preservation, vacuum mounting, and archival techniques, and have been honored with numerous accolades.
Sherrye shared some insight with us into her family’s business:
How did you become inspired to open a custom picture framing store?
Kelly has been an artist and art teacher and we have always enjoyed the creative aspects of completing the works of art.
Can you tell us about some of your favorite custom work you have done for clients?
Over the years we have framed bowling balls, jerseys, turkey beards, military uniforms, tea cups, swords, fans and lots of needlework, prints and photos. I think the ones we enjoy designing the most are the more creative and unusual objects.
Your shop has been open for more than 30 years. To what do you attribute its success?
Always give your best, try to solve their problem of how to display their work or object and use quality supplies to do it.
Why do you support Allied Arts through participation in the OKCityCard Partnership?
We are involved in the arts and always enjoy supporting all aspects of the industry.
What do the arts mean to you? Why are they important for our community?
The arts are the base for developing lifelong activities and cultural growth for everyone.
Sherrye has been a member and president twice of the Professional Picture Framing Association (PPFA) (1983-Present)
