Welcome to Ursel's Web, a gallery of fine and local art, custom framing, and unique gifts, specializing in German gifts.

We have several gift shows during the year: an Easter show, a summer pottery show, and the gallery-transforming Christmas show.

Regarding custom framing, we understand that well-framed art is like a cherished memory; both should last a life time. This is why we are celebrating 41 years of happy customers. Our goal is to provide you with expert design, helpful information, and of course a beautiful finished product.

We invite you to pay us a visit to meet our friendly and knowledgeable staff and see what we have to offer.

Free estimates are gladly given. Corporate Planning is available, too.
We have over a thousand frame styles to chose from, cut to any size for your framing needs.
