Artist Reception Tonight at 6pm, Renner’s is Open and Our Framed Art Sale Continues

It’s February. It’s gray, but not raining, and it’s First Friday! Village Frame and Gallery is pleased to feature Elana Einstein and Janet Collamer in the gallery this month.

About Elana Einstein

Elana Einstein is a local Portland artist and a retired preschool teacher. She now enjoys her time dotting mandalas and other symbolic themes. She also uses multi media photo manipulation to create dotted personal photos.

She paints acrylics on canvas, wood, rocks and other recycled and natural materials. Einstein says “creating mandalas is a meditative activity that provides peace of mind to the creator and observer. Through my art I try practicing generosity, loving kindness and gratitude every day.”

About Janet Collamer

Janet Collamer is a painter who is greatly inspired by native art in the Americas, Africa, Asia, but especially Australia. Janet lived in Mexico for two years and the murals and bright colors used there also inform her work.

Janet is a retired public school teacher where her best day of the week was Art Day. Janet lives in Beaverton with her husbands and sons.

Join us tonight, 6pm to 8 pm, for an artist’s reception to welcome Elana and Janet in the gallery. After the reception, stop by Renner’s to welcome them back to the neighborhood. Yes…

Renner’s is Open!

They’re still working out the kinks, but Renner’s Bar & Grill and Suburban room opened to the public for the first time in almost two years last Friday night for a fundraising event. The same faces are there and our neighborhood Five Star Dive Bar is back! The interior, rebuilt completely from the ground up has the same layout and a new curved bar. It’s still Renner’s, but updated.

We are so pleased to welcome Renner’s back to the neighborhood, it’s been too long. Renner’s opens at 11:00 am every day. We hope to see you there!

Getting Ready for the Holidays? We Have Last Minute Gifts and Last Minute Frames!

It’s the holidays and like many of our clients we’re getting our home ready for visitors and celebrations. We’ve been making Christmas cookies, Jeanette and I raided my mom’s recipes, to great cheer from my son, brother and father. To wrap presents last evening I had to clear off the dining room table. And our guest bedroom, well let’s just say that it’s where all matter of things are placed until such time as we need them or need the bedroom for guests.

Are you getting your home ready for the holidays, too? Need to clear out that guest bedroom and be able to set the dining room table for guests? Don’t stash that artwork you picked up on vacation under the bed, bring it to Village Frame & Gallery now and take advantage of our Golden Ticket offer – 10% off new custom framing projects – through December 31st! Your artwork will be safe and after the New Year you’ll have new artwork to put on your walls!

Last minute gifts at Village Frame & Gallery!

I walked into the mall last weekend, yes I did. I honestly haven’t “shopped” in a mall for years – why would I when there are so many great local shops in Multnomah Village and Hillsdale? Well, I went to the mall because I needed a piece of jewelry fixed and, perhaps, just a bit of curiosity. (Side note – I so miss Jones and Jones in the Village!) The mall was festive and the stores I walked into had very pleasant and helpful staff, just like the shops here in the Village. There is one BIG difference, the shops in the Village and Hillsdale are curated, owned and staffed by your neighbors!

At Village Frame & Gallery we have gifts for everyone on your list, hand made by local and regional artists. Beadwork jewelry, sculpture, ceramics, hand-turned wood pens and unframed original art. We can tell you about the artists and about the art – where they live and the processes they use – because they are your neighbors too!

Last minute framing options, now through Christmas Eve!

Precious family photos and framed artwork make wonderful gifts for the holidays and it’s not too late to create that special gift! Village Frame Gallery is pleased to carry 5×7 and 8×10 photo frames and a large selection of unique ReadyFast frames in standard sizes from 5×7 to 16×20, priced for holiday gift giving. As the name implies, framing projects with ReadyFast frames can be ready in as little as one day. Bring in those photos or artwork for that special someone and we’ll create a memorable gift, just in time for Christmas!

The Holidays are upon us, 20th Anniversary savings ending soon and a December sneak peek!

How did this happen? The year has just spirited by! A lovely spring gave way to June and July construction in the Village, the entire road being removed and the intersection torn up for what seemed like forever. A cooler than usual summer then lead to one of the most spectacular autumns I can remember. And now here we are planning our Holiday windows. Seriously, how did the year trip by so fast?

Yes, the holidays are upon us. We’ll be closed on Thursday and Friday, November 28th and 29th for Thanksgiving, and to get the shop and gallery ready for the Holidays. We’ll reopen on November 30th for Small Business Saturday – come on out and support your favorite local Multnomah Village businesses!

Celebrating 20 Years with Incredible Savings!

Celebrating 20 Years in Multnomah Village!

It all started with our owner’s strong interest in the art world and their desire to be a productive part of it. Deann Holtz and George Cline opened Village Frame & Gallery in 1999, determined to build an organization that met their own expectations for the presentation and preservation of artwork and memorabilia. Together, they established the high standards that still guide the day-to-day operations of the business.

Today, Village Frame & Gallery is owned and operated by long-time client Beth Nichols. The faces may be different, but our commitment to the preservation and presentation of our clients artwork remains unchanged – be it an antique map, an heirloom or needlework, a fine art purchase or a concert poster, or a beloved grandchild’s school project.

Highlighting Local Artists

Local. We define local as the Pacific Northwest, the Portland metro area and hyper-local, right here in Multnomah Village. The area is blessed with so many talented artists, many of whom have gone on to national and international recognition. And many who keep plugging away, with nary a chance to showcase their work. Village Frame and Gallery is pleased to bring talented artists (established and unknown) to our gallery, to Multnomah Village, as our monthly featured artists with a month-long venue to showcase their work. We hold artist receptions on First Fridays, an opportunity for residents and visitors to meet our monthly featured artist and view their work.
