from DR. CHRIS DOERR
Neurology Campus Clinic reception wall in Athens, GA
When I hosted an open house this spring in my studio in Athens Dr. Chris Doerr and his wife Stephanie arrived and fell in love with my new work. They decided to custom order a piece, based off a smaller work I had on my website and for sale. (which they bought)
Only, they wanted it BIG! (36" x 30") Something totally new for me! (of course I had no idea what to charge) It worked out in the end because he came back to the studio after I delivered this and bought 8 more pieces!
I met Kristy Gibson from Atlanta who represented the Arty Surplus Store and a recycled frame was waiting for me. Turns out she worked for a major framing company and she set up a store to sell the overflow frames from their major clients. I ended up driving to Atlanta to have the piece framed for the opening night of the Neurology Campus and I was really in for a treat when I walked into the warehouse in south Atlanta. I got to see a major framing company framing ALL THE ART work for all of the Westin Hotels as well as Holiday Inn and others. True enough, there was a huge back wall of the place with overstock of leftover frames about 15' high by 50' long!
Within a matter of MINUTES I had my artwork professionally framed and I saw all the experts in action. I had a beautiful piece framed and walked out with a GREAT DEAL! I drove directly to the clinic where it was hung for that evenings reception.
