The Frame Shop to host gallery hop

| December 1, 2013

COSHOCTON – In September of 2014, The Frame Shop, located at 1030 Chestnut St., will be celebrating its 20th anniversary and will be featuring special exhibits throughout the year. To kick off the celebrations a little early, they will be hosting a gallery hop on Saturday, Dec. 28.

Now through Dec. 23, people are encouraged to stop by The Frame Shop and view their exhibited art. Consisting of 28 pieces, each painting was done by a local artist. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite before you leave. Votes will be tallied up at the end of the show and the winner of the people’s choice will receive $100 in store credit. Most pieces are for sale.

“My main goal is to get artists more enthusiastic in Coshocton County like we used to be,” said Shara Prindle, owner of The Frame Shop.

In addition to The Frame Shop, the gallery hop will feature three other art venues in Coshocton: Commonwealth Americana at Keifer’s Florist in Roscoe Village, The Pomerene Center for the Arts, and the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum. The goal is to have an activity at each location with refreshments and art. The event is free.

“I want to get people into our places that maybe they have never been,” said Prindle.

During 2014, Prindle will be featuring a different local artist each month at The Frame Shop. Her artwork will be featured January and February and she has artists lined up to showcase their work for the next few months afterward.

“Each month, I want to do something to promote the business, the gallery, and the art in Coshocton,” said Prindle.

In September, Prindle is planning a large outdoor event in commemoration of their 20th anniversary.

In addition to the gallery, The Frame Shop is still selling art supplies in the back of the store.

“It’s relaxing,” said Prindle about painting. “It’s peaceful. I paint to give me peace and hopefully to give my observer peace. It’s easy to get lost in painting.”
