Custom Picture Framing and Much More
On Hertel Avenue in Beautiful, Historic, Hip, and Happening North Buffalo
50 years of framing experience
Located on Hertel since 1982
We talk with people – we listen to people – we frame and fix “stuff” for people. Bring us a challenge – we think we can do anything! (You may think I am using the “royal we” but there are two of us in the shop – Mar and Mama Lucy the rescued kitty! Mar does all the work – Mama Lucy observes, meows constantly, and happily accepts treats.)
We proudly present a kaleidoscope of our services: outstanding custom picture framing (matting, frame repair, glass replacement, needlework, and shadowboxes, etc), superlative photographic restoration, and the meticulous repair of an infinite variety of your precious personal artifacts.
I have been spending all of my energy working on our Facebook page. Have fun looking through the many albums of photos of framing and restoration projects (plus a lot of pictures of the gorgeous Mama Lucy, who is now known as the tubby tortie). Give us a Like, thanks! To contact State of the Art, please leave a message on this Facebook page. Your message will be answered as soon as Facebook deigns to show it to me. You can also phone (832-3900) and leave a voice message on my old-fashioned answering machine (on my copper-wired land line).
2019 Update: My hip surgery is all done and I am returning to the shop as of April 2nd. I no longer have an apprentice, but I do have a brand new hip and even though you will see me walking with a cane, I am no longer in pain. I may be moving slowly for a while but I am back! And I cannot wait to be back up to 100% because I love framing – and I hope and pray I have a lot more years of framing ahead of me!
