Americana music guru Uncle Gram recently retired from the radio airwaves of WUSC-FM 90.5. He had many in studio guests over the years, including the musician and visual artist Andy Friedman. Andy saw fit to honor Uncle Gram with this pen and ink portrait! We were lucky to frame it, we chose black mats and an Italian hand-finished black moulding with repeating circular design (that we decided looks a bit like a 33 1/3 rpm album!) We raised the glass off the art with hidden spacers. This piece measures about 14″ square.

Framed Album with Hinged Frame Top! Arnold Palmer Golf

Framed Album with Hinged Frame Top! Arnold Palmer Golf

Recently a customer brought in this vintage golf instructional record album, complete with a twenty page booklet inside the album cover. It was to be a gift for a retired golfer and we decided to frame it with a hinged lid so it could be accessed and enjoyed as it was meant to be instead of permanently behind glass. So, we hinged a frame lid, a copper toned wood moulding. We built a case out of 1 1/2″ wide square wood moulding. Works pretty well! It looks like a neat piece of retro golf art on the wall and you can open the lid to remove the album and booklet!

We are posting several pics, some with the flash on and some with the flash off, so you can see the subtle and deliberate textures Kobayashi employs. Wonderful!
