In July 1989, American Frame & Gallery was born in Winchester Plaza in Fairview Heights, Illinois. The business specialized in high quality custom picture framing and a variety of artwork, from originals to limited editions to posters. In the winter of 2008, the business was expanded with the addition of artist supplies and a move to a bigger space at Chateau Plaza. Although the art supply business was fun, it ultimately proved unsustainable. In August 2013 we moved into Joe Vavak’s old Photography Studio, a perfect fit for us. We still specialize in high quality custom picture framing with an emphasis on framing the unusual. In fact, the business card states "We Frame Weird Stuff!"). For the full story Click here.
