“What a Difference a Frame Makes”

What a Difference a Frame Makes: The Interpretive Art of Picture Framing” by Peter Stone

First Friday reception Jan. 3 from 5 – 8 pm,

Art & Soul Gallery announces our January 2020 featured artist/framer — Peter Stone. This exhibit includes artwork by all of the Art & Soul Gallery artists which has been framed by Peter, the gallery’s new owner.

Peter Stone has been a professional picture framer for more than twenty-three years. He owned the popular Arrowhead Framing shop in Half Moon Bay, CA before moving to Ashland and Art & Soul Gallery.

He has long enjoyed the interpretive creative process and the constant creative problem solving which are custom picture framing. Peter loves the unique design opportunity that come with each new artistic challenge. “Every custom picture framing project comes with a story,” Peter has discovered. People only choose custom framing when the artwork has special meaning, he said. “And what is more special than our family memories!”

The gallery’s First Friday show also features wine and light refreshments; live music by pianist Anthony Bock, and will be on display from December 31 – February 2.

Pianist, Anthony Bock, a senior at SOU and a student of Dr. Tutunov, returns to Art & Soul for the third time. He effortlessly combines classical and non-classical piano music in a free and bright style which captivates everyone listening.
