411 Ferry Street, Suite C, Martinez, CA 94553
Housed in a former antique store at 411 Ferry Street, in Historical Downtown Martinez, “I’ve Been Framed” has been open since April 2010. Cathy Riggs, owner, says people bring in an astonishing array of items to be framed. Looking around the shop, you see paintings, prints, posters, antique labels and rare photos, including one of the Vallejo Motorcycle Club dating back to the 1920s. “It’s the most fun,” says Riggs.
I’ve Been Framed is locally owned, serving Martinez (and beyond). Cathy specializes in fine custom preservation framing, with onsite design, delivery, and installation. She offers specialized framing packages, large format, Eco-friendly framing, and more. Be sure to look at examples of her work to preview the wide range of framing styles and techniques she uses. Whatever your framing needs, she is here to help!
I’ve Been Framed has evolved into more than a frame shop. With available instruction in: Drawing, Watercolor, Wood Carving, Photography, Clay, and more…the end result is a display of the created works. I’ve Been Frame, Shop & Gallery is Born.
The Gallery is hosting a number of exciting exhibits in 2014.
We will keep you updated…more to follow, soon.
