At Dreamcatcher Meadows Farm I build Vintage Wood Frames from 100 year old barns that I have had the opportunity and privilege to recycle. I build picture frames that are unique in design and are intended to enhance the picture they surround. Stained glass is selected to highlight the subject for a one of a kind signature frame. The old barns I have salvaged provide a variety of woods such as oak, pine, hemlock, fir, poplar, and the now extinct American Chestnut, all aged by the elements of nature to raise the grain of the wood to an unbelievable beauty. A frame takes about 2 days to make and are priced at $2.00 per inch.
Prints available at the Floyd Country Store, Floyd, Va.
These photo prints will be on display at the next Jacksonville Center art show. The photos are images captured by Fred of scenes around Fred's home on Goose Creek. The frames are made of wood salvaged from an old American Chestnut log barn. The wormy chestnut is estimated to be more than 100 years old. The frames are inlaid with stained glass trim.
These prints and frames can be viewed at the "Mountain Color" art show in The Jacksonville Center for the Arts from October 3rd through December 1st. Visit the Jacksonville Center gallery web site - http://jacksonvillecenter.org/galleries-1.htm.
