About Pat Craig Studios
Working as a custom picture framer since 1993, I want you to feel comfortable trusting your cherished photos, artworks, and treasures to our care. You are an important part of our framing process, and together we will find the solutions for your unique framing needs. We cater to all levels of need, from basic grade papers and glass to museum quality conservation glass and cotton mats. It is always our goal to allow all that you love about your work to shine through, and never overshadow it with our framing. As a fellow artist, I know the importance of protecting the integrity of the work at a price point that won’t break the bank and all done in a time frame to meet the tight exhibit timelines of my clients.
THE POND: ARTIST STUDIOS
THE PENNY GALLERY AT THE POND
Come dip your toes in The Pond! In 2017, we opened The Pond, an artist collective, plus K. Olson Ceramics studio and retail shop, next door to Pat Craig Studios, followed by the opening of The Penny Gallery for Art & Performance in Oct. 2018. In itself, the building is an amazing and urban cool, artistic restoration of one of Carlisle’s oldest buildings, c. late 1700’s. The Penny Gallery hosts juried group exhibits as well as offering affordable exhibit rental space for individuals wanting public space to showcase their works, or simply a charming downtown venue for a special gathering. Metered street parking is free weekdays after 4pm, and all day Saturdays & Sundays and the public parking garage is directly across the street.
