Brian is Absolutely The Best 2/10/2009

Brian is truly brilliant at what he does! AND it is a real treat to work with him. I agree with all that the other 5 star reviews have said. I don't even bother to ""shop around"" anymore.... if it cost more to frame with Brian (and I'm not even certain that it necessarily does -- have you ever gotten a quote from Beard's Framing?? -- they are outrageous) it is WORTH every penny. \r A lovely place, and the best eye in town -- can't say enough good things.\r Thanks Brian for setting up shop in Portland! Pros: Brian's Brilliance, Humor and Patience Cons: Absolutely none. more

Amazing service and exceptional craftsmanship! 1/29/2008

Being new in town, I had no idea of where I could find a framing studio that I could trust to treat my artwork with care and offer affordable prices. This site pointed me to Brian Marki Fine Art. I could not have received better advice. From the moment I stepped in the door and was personally greeted by Brian Marki, to the moment I left the store with my framed artwork, I was treated to the highest level of care and service. Brian spent considerable time with me, helping me to select the frame and matting that would best suit my piece. I never felt rushed nor like I was bothering him throughout the consultation and selection process. Even when I was making some clearly bad choices in regards to preserving my artwork, Brian never made me feel ignorant nor stupid. Instead he treated me with the utmost respect as he gently guided me to a far better choice. He also kept in mind my limited budget, my artistic values, and my personal tastes as we discussed my options and choices. To top it off, his pricing was extremely fair and reasonable. I left feeling my artwork was in excellent hands. But as they say, ""the proof is in the pudding"" and it was not until I returned to see the finished piece that I knew my choosing Brian's gallery was the best possible decision I could have made. WOW! The finished result was elegantly beautiful and clearly spoke the excellent craftsmanship of the mounting and framing. The framing enhanced the artwork and made it ""sing."" Now I have a piece of artwork in my office that immediately elicits praise and comments of awe from my clients. Thank you Brian! Pros: respect for the customer, excellent service, amazing value more

Most Knowledgeable in Portland- a Real Treasure 9/20/2006

As both a private collector and interior designer, I have had many items framed over the years, ranging from $1 posters to museum quality art costing over $100,000. The level of both service and finished products I have received at Brian's is second to none. As an artist himself, Brian knows how to treat everything, and I love knowing my works will be handled properly. I never have to ""babysit"" my projects. I have also purchased many fine original pieces of art from Brian's gallery. If I ever owned a gallery, it would look like this one! Brian is the best, period. Pros: Level of Service and Quality Cons: There are none. more

So helpful! 2/24/2006

I called up Brian after having never met him, and he spent a half hour talking to me on the phone about framing possibilities-- being the most open, honest and helpful framer I have found as an artist more

Brilliant Gallery 10/1/2002

This gallery is real find outside of the ""art district."" The ambiance is very European, and the art well presented. I've bought paintings, photographs and fused glass here that I really love. I've also taken several pieces in for framing and they did a brilliant job. The art was well handled and the staff knowledgeable, encouraging and pleasant. more
