In 1995 Ken and Judy Barnes opened a small custom frame studio in Monroe City, MO. Ken's innovative engineering talents, Judy's flair for color, and their combined sense of style and commitment to quality, earned the Barnes' a reputation for creative, unique, and unusual matting and framing techniques.
In addition to framing, Ken and Judy had an immediate passion for limited edition prints and collectibles.
In only 2 years they outgrew their space and expanded to a larger gallery in the historic district of downtown Hannibal, MO. In April, 1998 the new gallery opened just 2 blocks from Mark Twain's boyhood home and 1 block from the Mississippi River. In 2000 they knocked a large hole in the wall and expanded into the next storefront. Since the expansion, Ken and Judy have added new staff, more artists, more frame choices and continue adding unique lines of merchandise - many are proudly MADE IN THE USA .
Ken and Judy are excited about art and enjoy being around it and helping preserve it for generations to come. That's why they are there to help you with all of your framing and art decorating needs.
