Nick Cuiffi


Nick has loved art since grade school, always taking as many electives in high school and college in the arts. Pen and ink drawings ,pottery, watercolors and some oils.

Fixing, repairing and antiquing furniture and frames has been part of our lives for 42 years. Restoring old and new frames and paintings is challenging but the end results are rewarding. With Kathy's master of color mixing ,restoring Great Grandma's 100+ year old torn oil painting that fell of the wall, is a plus in the framing business.

In 2009 we acquired a custom framing business from Dick Selleck's- Borders Plus in Covington, which has fit into our art gallery quite well. Dick has been a great mentor and friend and still is!

In 2015 we partnered with our Artist Friends at Southern Heartland Art Gallery,on the square in Covington, GA to provide framing for their location. Our little town of Covington Ga. has many talented Artists of all mediums and styles. " FOLLOW THE ARTS' visit both locations and websites for more information:
