St Petersburg/Tampa Bay, FL – Osprey Real Estate Services announces the reopening of Poor Richard’s Gallery and Framing in downtown St. Petersburg.
Due to the strong demand for his expert craftsmanship, professional fine art framer W. Gilbert Johnson (historically known as Poor Richard’s Gallery and Framing) has returned to downtown St. Petersburg after several years of semi-retirement. Osprey is pleased to announce that he has recently re-opened as “Gilbert’s Fine Custom Framing” in the gallery of Michele Tuegel Contemporary, located at 320 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, Florida in the ground floor retail space of the First Central Tower building. Gilbert Johnson is a master in the art framing industry, specifically for his impeccable services to museums, art collectors, artists and those seeking creative design solutions for everything from diplomas to three-dimensional objects to Master works. He is best known for his uncanny ability to pair a painting with its frame to enhance the beauty of both. Mr. Johnson stated, “For decades I’ve been fortunate to make a living doing something I thoroughly enjoy. The creative process that leads to a smile from the client as they view the finished product is very rewarding”. Michele Tuegel is delighted to have him available to provide framing services in her gallery. She confidently explained, “Gilbert takes such pride in his work, plus with his keen eye for detail, I can promise his customers will be nothing short of amazed with the exceptional quality of the finished product. I consider him an artist in his own right. From fine, traditional framing to sleek, contemporary frames, Gilbert is always capable of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary”.
Gilbert Johnson’s framing studio is such a fantastic complement to Michele’s gallery. Now, you can walk into the gallery and find the perfect artwork or bring in your own items, and then have them framed or shadow-boxed by Gilbert.
