Artists Gallery Group Show at Hopewell Frame Shop

Hopewell Frame Shop’s Gallery Exhibit
to Feature Artists’ Gallery of Lambertville
Marks Final Show for Founding Owner Abby Frantz

March 11 - April 26, 2008
Opening Reception: Saturday March 15, 6 to 8 pm
24 West Broad Street (Rt 518), Hopewell, New Jersey

Beginning March 11th and continuing through the end of April, the walls of the Hopewell Frame Shop’s Gallery will be overflowing with the beautiful, evocative work of the current roster of members of the Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville. Abby Frantz, founding owner of the Hopewell Frame Shop, will curate and host her final Open House from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 15th, at the Shop’s Broad Street location. Refreshments will be catered by the Brothers’ Moon. Patrons and newcomers alike are encouraged to stop by, mingle with the artists, and wish Abby a fond farewell. After 32 years of picture framing and almost twenty nine years of running her shop in Hopewell, she has decided it is time to move on.

During the run of the show, the ownership of the Hopewell Frame Shop will change into the hands of Marc Udell of the Queenstown Gallery in Pennington. Reflecting on the sale of her long-term business, Abby says, "I have truly enjoyed my many years here and I would like to thank all of my customers for their continuous support and friendship. I have complete faith that the new owner will be able to continue the tradition of the finest custom framing in the area and I encourage you to offer him a warm welcome."

For her final show, Abby has chosen to highlight the members of The Artists' Gallery. "These artists have been supportive of the Hopewell Frame Shop’s Gallery since they first formed their partnership in 1996," says Abby Frantz, "and selecting them for my final show is my way of both thanking them and assuring them that their work will always be welcome in Hopewell." We at the Artists' Gallery are of course honored to fill this role, and are very thankful to Abby for her support over the years.

The Hopewell Frame Shop, located at 24 West Broad Street, Hopewell, New Jersey. Regular hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For information on current and future events, please contact Abby Frantz at 609.466.0817
