We won our first time entering a frame competition!!!

We are so excited!
We won 1st Place and Popular Vote in a framing competition held in Traverse City, Mi this weekend!!!!!!!!

The competition theme was " Home Is Where Your Heart Is".
We were to frame something that showed what is great about our town or community. So, we combined our love of U.P. history and one of things Marquette (as well as the rest of the Upper Peninsula) was built on... timber. **This photo titled "World's Fair Load of Logs - Largest Load of Logs Ever Pulled by Two Horses, circa 1893" was thoughtfully chosen from our Superior View Historic Photo Collection.

We will have the framing back in our possession May 15th, so stop on in and see it first hand!

November window display - an ode to hunters

We're moving right along through November.
So, you know what that means..?

I thought it would be most appropriate to design our display window with a "hunting" theme. Complete with a passed out hunter on the right... tongue in cheek of course

These historic photos depicting the way hunting was in the U.P. would be seriously perfect for your (or a friends) camp.

Historic Photographs of the U.P. are located in our store

Are you wondering what the heck happened to Superior View Historic Photographs that was located downtown Marquette on Washington Street???
The photographs are now inside our store - Art of Framing 149 West Washington. Located directly across the street from Superior View's old building!

The owner, Jack Deo, decided to retire last year and when we heard this, we approached him with the idea to carry just a few of his most popular photos. Well, the more we talked about it, we decided to place his whole collection in our shop here. We have the perfect space to house all twenty some thousand images.
They are categorized exactly as they were in his former shop.
It would had surely been a shame to lose such an iconic store from our historic downtown Marquette. We are proud to carry on the legacy.

So, please pass along this information to anyone and everyone!!!
