New Expanded Photo Center – Athens Art and Frame

Our fledgling photo center had outgrown its cave in the back of the store.

After maximizing every inch, our associates were bumping into each other and the giclee printer, which is a recipe for disaster when handling glass and priceless original artwork. Fortunately, no such disaster came to pass, but its specter hanging over necessitated a change.
