The Framing Gallery was founded in 1973 by my dad, William Gilmartin. He was a professional artist, illustrator and worked as an Art Director for over 25 years. The Shop was his pride and joy and he couldnt believe how happy he was. My dads feelings were so contagious that my mom and I both left teaching to join the family business in 1983. In 1990, we expanded to our present location on Elwood Avenue because we wanted to open an art gallery as well. We have hosted hundreds of artists for the last 44 years where art lovers can meet, and share their ideas while enjoying music from our upright piano. We have an extensive array of picture framing materials including thousands of molding samples, French matting, state of the art equipment, jewelry, crafts, and tons of great ideas! We simply love what we do and know you will too!
