31 July

August events & more at Panorama Framing, Inc.!

Hi Folks!

August 1 is both the first day of August and the First Thursday of the month (obvious, I know).

For Panorama Framing, that means we’re hosting an Artist Reception, and taking part in First Thursdays on Grand Avenue with other galleries and merchants. 🙂

But, what does that mean for you? Why, A stroll down or up Grand Avenue, filled with art, wine, snacks, music, and more! Head on over to to see what’s in store this First Thursday! 🙂

Read on for what’s coming to the Gallery @ Panorama Framing, August’s artist reception event, and picture framing related things… Enjoy!


Continuing in the Gallery @ Panorama Framing is “Distant Sun“, featuring works by Raymond Wong. Be sure to join us on Thursday, August 1 from 6-9PM, to meet the artist & celebrate the show!

“Distant Sun” utilizes photographs found in magazines, brochures and art catalogs. These fragmented source materials serve as ingredients for painting as well as stand alone collages. In these dystopian scenes, Raymond draws inspiration from science fiction films and novels. Just as movies and books tell stories, Raymond’s pictorial work pieces together a fractured narrative.

Come to The Gallery at Panorama Framing from 6:00-9:00PM on August 1, meet Raymond, enjoy beverages & snacks, and maybe find a piece to fall in love with and take home. 🙂 “Distant Sun” will be on view in the Gallery @ Panorama through August.


Yep, we do Custom Picture Framing! In addition to carrying moulding lines from Roma, Larson-Juhl, Nurre Caxton (and more!), Panorama is partnering with local woodworkers & contractors to source reclaimed wood for framing!

Pictured above are the current reclaimed offerings — The Cuban Mahogany (ca. 1936) was once face-nailed & plugged flooring, The Port Ordford Cedar is 1920s v-grooved wainscot, and the Douglas Fir is resawn trim and casing from the 1940s.

All have been rabbeted, and are waiting to be mitered together for just the right piece… Yours? 🙂 Supplies are limited, and are first-come, first-served. Oh, the artwork standing in above are silkscreens from Casa Murriguez. Also available here at Panorama Framing!

If you have something unique or special to you, and you want an inventive and cool way to display it — come on in and talk to Patrick at Panorama! 🙂


Ahhh, California! Panorama Framing is excited to be carrying fine prints, cards and more from 3 Fish Studios in San Francisco. We’re the first (and so far only) Oakland outfit to showcase Annie and Eric’s sweet images.

The prints are proving popular, so stop in Panorama’s storefront at 3350 Grand Avenue soon, and claim your piece of California Love. 🙂

In addition to prints from 3 Fish Studios, Kevin Berne Photography, & Momoko Sudo, don’t forget that Panorama also showcases and carries other beautiful, functional art for your home — Ceramics from Kylix Design and Sara Paloma Pottery, finely crafted wood seating from Laurence Gandsey, and more!


We look forward to seeing you at the Artist Reception on Thursday August 1, 2013 for Raymond Wong‘s “Distant Sun”, on view through August. 🙂

Thanks for listening, and we hope to see you soon!

Patrick (& the rest of the Panorama Framing, Inc. crew)
