It all began with a grandparents' corner grocery store in upstate New York. Offering customers what they want was in the blood. Art and Frame of Falls Church to this day continues to offer candies from the counter as Tom's grandparents did in their store.
Tom began framing many, many years ago by way of his Dad framing the works his Mom completed. In 2001 Tom took what he had learned from many years of working with friends, business acquaintances, and relatives and turned it into a retail setting that now sits among 9,500 square feet along with 20 artist and business studios.
What began as a picture frame shop in Tom's family home is now a community of framers, artists, and small businesses. The care Tom showed in framing his mom's artwork, is the same care we give to each and every customer that walks through our doors. Stop by and see for yourself our one-of-a-kind artist community today.
The creator and organizer of FIRSTfriday of Falls Church and one of the co-founders of Falls Church Arts and Taste of Falls Church, Tom continues to create and infuse the arts in everything he touches. He brings the teachings of his parents to everything he does. His favorite saying, "The Customer Is Always Right" is how he approaches business each and every day.
Bev started as a photographer--seeing life through the lens. She then turned to paint which she says inspires her imagination to put on canvas a different version of the world as she sees it. Bev is passionate about art and enjoys helping others find the perfect piece or frame design for their art.
