This was a project that we had previously done multiple years ago, we had always wanted to show it off but the old website was...well...not good at that sort of thing.
We were mainly resigned to strangely small images with details much too small to properly convey, what had happened and what was done about it, with misshaped red squares, neglected and alone, trying to gain the attention of those who would be willing to scrutinize the many points of interest with a magnifying glass.
This is about the size of it too, it did include the written word, to describe what most likely was unseen, it lacked depth, I am sorry, I was young and naive, I thought that maybe people would see the qual...
During this long weekend of togetherness we would like to wish everyone a good ole time, We will be closed this coming Monday, February 20th. We will of course be back to our regular schedule on following Tuesday. I've heard many plans for this long weekend, skiing trips, bowling outings, A search for the Robocop statue, etc.
I am reminded when this holiday was first implemented, somewhat reminiscent of a Simpson episode where the gift companies were trying to create a new holiday to boost slumping sales.
Well we made it, it is 2017, In case you didn't have the time to stop by a lot has happened!
We decided to send out a mass email to our artists about an imminent redo of the gallery, almost every artist came by bringing in their new works. If you were by in the earlier part of December you would have seen the paintings everywhere. So over the course of a week, we were able to get them all up on the walls!
Here a few of the pieces that you may have missed!
And there is so much more, so come on by and see for yourselves.
Well it is finally here... We would like to notify all customers that come tomorrow December 24th we will be closing early, at roughly 2pm. In which we will begin our holiday, We hope you have a great holiday and as for us...we're off, We will be closed on the following days;
December 25th CLOSED
December 26th CLOSED
December 27th CLOSED
December 28th CLOSED
December 29th CLOSED

A Happy Holidays to all of you, see you in The New Year!
The time is almost up! This is it, the last day for full framing options, we know that it is a busy season and there never seems to be much time, and even though we will be unable to offer you everything, we still have a lot of somethings available in stock after today, along with a guarantee of a pre-holiday due date.
So don't fret, everything is going to be fine, promise. :) (here is a happy face)
During one of our annual scouting outings at The Toronto Outdoor Exhibition, We happened upon
Allen Egan showing his work. Featuring an interesting and whimsical styling in his surreal work, coupled with his grounded and calming impressionist landscapes, we couldn't resist inviting him to join our roster of artists and lucky enough, Allen was actually interested in showing his work in Toronto.
Originally from Kadoma, Zimbabwe, Allen began creating work featuring figurative and portraiture art in an African Rural setting.
After emigrating to Canada, Allen started to cavort with the genre of surrealism, though part of me thinks that cavort might not b...
Got the opportunity to work on some awfully fun pieces recently, a somewhat long journey into the realm of nostalgia, great works of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Dumbo, Pinocchio, Roger Rabbit, and even a little bit of Huckleberry Hound and Yogi The Bear. Check out all the nifty pieces from the Cartoon Glory days!
These Cutout stand ups have a nice way of being displayed, instead of the standard "place on shelf" approach. The bag it came in was in poor shape, which in turn completely obscured what was inside. So, we carefully removed the bag and staples, storing them in the back of the frame just in case. Placed both label and stand ups in a shadow box with an extra deep cool silver frame.
