Framing “Discoveries In Early California Art”: North Point Gallery Exhibit Opens Today

Over the years we have framed numerous paintings for our friends at North Point Gallery. Today they are opening a lovely show called “Discoveries In Early California Art,” and I’m happy to say we have a large number of frames on display. North Point’s owner, Alfred Harrison, is one of the world’s leading historians of California painting and has written extensively on the topic, including, most recently, the catalog for the Crocker Art Museum’s current show on Raymond Dabb Yelland. It is a tremendous honor to have been chosen to frame so many significant paintings for Alfred and to have so much of our work included in this beautiful show.

I also want to acknowledge the hard work of Alfred’s assistant Jessie Dunn-Gilbert in putting the show together, and express my gratitude for all she does working part time as business manager and gallery director for Holton Studio as well!

“Discoveries In Early California Art” runs for just two weeks, closing December 15. The gallery is just two blocks down the street from us, at Fifth and Bancroft.
