The Frame Shop at Weems is a custom frame shop using only the best archival and conservational supplies.  Through many vendors, we offer a large variety of frames.  In addition to art framing, we offer specialty services such as hand-sewn mounting of textiles, mirrors, shadowbox creations, and more.  We pride ourselves on quality work at reasonable prices.  Each piece gets the same attention to detail regardless of the value of the piece.  Your art is precious to us.

The shop is managed by Chris Salazar who grew up working in his dad’s frame shop 25+ years ago.  Chris is a master at designing the perfect frame and mat to enhance the beauty of any piece.  In addition to stretching canvases for our artists, Chris has been the go-to person for many shadow box memorabilia creations.

Jennifer LeBron is the other full-time staff at his side.  Jennifer received her bachelor’s in fine art at the University of Minnesota and is an artist herself.  Jen has been framing since 1988 and adds her artistic ability to every piece.  Jen loves working with delicate textiles to showcase the beauty of the creation.

April Martinez is a part-time framer.  April received her bachelor's degree in Studio Arts from the University of New Mexico.  April is also a part-time artist.

On Saturdays, you will also run into Jennifer Eggleston.  During the week, she works as a conservationist at the University of New Mexico.  Jen E. has a degree from UNM in fine art as well.  She also grew up working in her parent’s frame shop and has extensive experience.
