APPLEWOOD GALLERY is one of the finest custom framing
design studios in the Carolinas. With over 2500 beautiful
custom frame mouldings on display, we offer one of the
largest and most wide-ranging frame selections anywhere.
Let our experienced and creative designers work with you to
create a framing treatment that will grace your home or office for years to come.
It simply is not enough to pick your frame shop
from the phone book, or make your decision based upon price alone. Custom framing
involves more than just a frame, glass and mats. When choosing a framer ask about
materials and practices; ask about preservation framing, training and professional
associations. A diploma or certificate is not necessarily a guarantee of quality;
experience is the best teacher. Keep in mind that custom framing is just that
- designed and built to your specifications, in accordance with standards that
will protect your artwork for years
Applewood Gallery is a member of the Damron C. Owens chapter of the
Professional Picture Framers Association (PPFA). PPFA is the international trade/educational
association for the art and framing industry representing more than 3,000 custom
picture framers, art galleries, manufacturers and distributors. The association
provides its members with educational workshops, marketing support and education.
In 2004, Applewood Gallery owner Kassandra Ulchar earned the Certified Picture
Framer (CPF) designation from PPFA.
Since 1997, we have been trusted by some of Charlotte's leading artists,
museums, galleries and homes to provide unique, innovative and distinctive framing
and display designs. We offer custom framing for original art, prints, photos,
needlework, and textiles. We also custom frame mirrors, stretch canvas artwork,
build shadowboxes and reframe old photos.
Applewood Gallery can create nearly any frame design
you can imagine. We believe that innovative design is the key in creating truly
unique custom framing. Our goal is to create frame designs that will both enhance
and preserve your artwork for years to come. Stop by the gallery and see ALL that
we can do for you.
