Our Framing History
Peter Smith and his wife Rhonda entered the picture framing business when they first purchased Frames Galore in Sherman Oaks in 1997. With Rhonda's keen eye for design and Peter's craftsmanship and attention to detail, they grew Frames Galore into one of the top framing businesses in the Valley. Clients included celebrities Dolly Parton, Joe Walsh, Tom Arnold, John Tesh, Bonnie Franklin and many more. They also did the framing of memorabilia for "Big Brother All Stars" and were featured in an episode of "Tacky House" with Thom Felicia on the Style Network.
Having moved to the Santa Clarita area in 2002 to raise their family, Peter & Rhonda sold Frames Galore in 2011 and decided to open Valencia Art & Framing in Granary Square. In a short time, they established themselves in the art community and laid the roots for their new business. However, with the struggling economy and high business costs, they decided to close the retail location in 2013.
Over the past 8 years, Valencia Art & Framing has established a reputation for quality workmanship and caring customer service with many loyal customers. So, to better serve the framing needs of the Santa Clarita Community, Peter & Rhonda have decided to offer their special mix of craftsmanship and design to the retail market.
With only department store or franchise framing options available to the community, Valencia Art & Framing wants to offer a more personal "boutique" approach to framing. Their new shop offers a light open cozy vibe where clients can feel at home and be unpressured to work through the design process.
We look forward to serving you at our new shop located at 21618 Golden Triangle Road, Suite 107, Santa Clarita
