Frame of Reference shared Coeur d' Alene Galleries's album.

This fantastic event was an absolute joy to be a part of! Buddy and Ron invited me to do a presentation on framing your collection, and I jumped at the chance - great setting, an amazing bunch of artists, collectors and industry professionals all gathered at Quinn's for what I sincerely hope will be an annual event. A stunning collection of both historic and contemporary works were on display, and the quick finish event Thursday was captivating.

With a reputation for honesty and integrity spanning three decades, the folks at Coeur d' Alene Galleries are staunch advocates who promote the Western Art genre with class, exceptional service and intelligent advice. (In spite of what the photos show, the highlight of the event was NOT actually the gathering in the hot pools with Buddy serving drinks...) Thanks again, guys - I'm honored to have been a part of the first Collector's Rendezvous on the Clark Fork!
