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.
For over 40 years, our customers have trusted us to frame their valued pieces. All of your work is framed on location by Ursel and her helpful and friendly staff. We have over a thousand frame styles to chose from, cut to any size for your framing needs.
