Small enough to care, big enough to get the job done.

Since opening our doors in 2001, we have been committed to serving our customers and serving our community. And yes, we're open and continuing to deliver the same service to this day. 


Come by to frame your treasures and enjoy our 20 Artist and Small Business Studios! Stop in and we'll take care of you as we have always done.  We do and are practicing social distancing (our counter alone is four feet deep now with a plexi glass barrier), routinely cleaning, and rarely do we have more than 3 people in the shop area at one time.

Come on in and meet Tom, Leesa, Jason, Zoe, Jon, Regina and Rachel!  Thank you to ALL of our wonderful customers! Come join us anytime in celebrating all the years we've been in business!

Our History

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.
