Painted Light Photography & Framing Gallery

“PAINTED LIGHT” refers to the process of adding color to black-and-white photographs—the passion that started things off back in 1990. Since then, we have developed into a “small shop with expansive vision”, offering expert photograph restoration, archival duplication, custom printing and digital archiving of family collections; full-service custom framing “with an artists’ touch” of anything and everything, and a eclectic art and gift gallery representing many local artists and artisans. We also do original portraiture, particularly with animals.

Here at Painted Light, we set ourselves apart by providing an attentive atmosphere, with sensitivity to both aesthetics and price, and we regularly perform “above-and-beyond” our customers’ expectations. No job is too small, yet we have the full range of framing and matting samples as well as ready-made and stock frames for convenience and cost consciousness. We are known for our personal touch and executing projects with skilled and creative craftsmanship. Our longtime photographic expertise has put us in a fairly singular category as far as handling  challenging restoration projects and customers have trusted us with their most sensitive and precious photos through the years.

Artisan-inspired, service oriented and idea driven—a bit off the beaten track, but well worth the trip!
