The Gallery was named by Décor Magazine as one of America’s top Art and Framing Retailers.
The winners, which are selected by a panel of judges, are judged based on sales growth, store design, marketing, profitability and technology integration. “I feel proud and honored to have received this award, especially considering that there are over 24,000 art and framing galleries in the United States,” said owner Karen Van Camp.
Fine Art and Framing Gallery opened in Parkersburg, WV in 1992 in a little 250-square-foot shop on Sixth Street . They grew that year and in 1993 moved into a large Parkersburg shop on Green Street. The gallery in Marietta was added in 1999 and another one in Dresden, Ohio in 2000.
When the small Parkersburg location closed in 2002, a store was opened at Grand Central Mall, Parkersburg, WV, then Town Center Mall, Charleston, WV. Then our main location, with 6,000 square-feet became 220 Front St., Marietta, OH.
“We offer a complete line of custom, conservation framing designed to enhance and preserve your art,”Van Camp said. “Our staff consists of three designers and two production specialists, in addition to my husband, Glenn Newman. With his over 20 years’ experience in the printing and publishing industry, he is able to restore old or damaged photographs and prints and can reprint them up to 48 inches wide on our giclee printer, using archival, stable inks.”
