City Picture Frame is one of the best framing shops in town. When I went there the other day, to figure out a frame for an oil painting, I spotted an amazing gallery wall full of (mostly) black and white art. It turned out all the pieces on the wall were made by the same artist, John Mayberry, who has his studio in the building.
After working on a few gallery walls lately, at home and for clients, I couldn’t help but noticing that this way of grouping art has made it into the stores as well. Here are two examples, showing slightly different styles; one from J Crew and one from Banana Republic in San Francisco. Who wore hung it best? Photos: Charlotte Coffey
