Chautauqua Art Gallery Acquires The Frame and Glass Shoppe in Jamestown, NY

Chautauqua Art Gallery proudly announces the acquisition of The Frame and Glass Shoppe, currently located directly across the street from the gallery at 318 N. Main Street in Jamestown. This strategic move marks the beginning of an exciting chapter for both establishments and promises an enriched artistic experience for the Jamestown community.

After 23 years of dedicated service, Dan Gates, the owner of The Frame and Glass Shoppe, has decided to embark on a well-earned retirement. Entrusting the legacy of his frame shop to Leslie Calimieri, owner of Chautauqua Art Gallery, Dan expresses confidence in the seamless continuation of the shop's longstanding tradition of exceptional craftsmanship.

Leslie Calimieri, sharing her excitement about the acquisition, stated, "The Frame and Glass Shoppe has been a cornerstone of artistic expression in Jamestown, and we are honored to carry on its legacy. Our goal is to seamlessly integrate the strengths of both establishments, offering an even more comprehensive range of services to our patrons."

During this transition, customers can expect business as usual at The Frame and Glass Shoppe, with Dan Gates personally overseeing the completion of current orders. Simultaneously, Chautauqua Art Gallery is poised to begin accepting new custom frame orders starting November 20.

The collaboration between Chautauqua Art Gallery and The Frame and Glass Shoppe promises a blend of expertise, creativity, and a continued commitment to delivering unparalleled craftsmanship. Art enthusiasts can anticipate an expanded range of services and an enduring dedication to elevating the artistic landscape in Jamestown.
