who we are

Iona and I put down roots in Nelson in the spring of 1981 and opened our frame shop in the Chahko Mika Mall, December of 1983. Our business soon added art work and we changed our name to Hummingbird Gallery to reflect  that in 1984. In 1989 we moved to a larger space in  downtown Nelson on Vernon Street and remained there for the remainder of the millennium.

In 2000 we completed our shop in the rear of our home and downsized to focus again on custom picture framing but the name stuck.

In 2007 due to family issues we put our framing on the back burner. Those issues are all resolved so we’re back to offer our services and expertise once again to Nelson and the Kootenays.

And yes we still have lots of Art …. check out our online gallery

what we do

design

We can’t change the art but we can place it in the best possible light. With years of experience we can ensures your framing project will not only look its best but will be protected as well.

matting

We stock a large selection of colours and styles of the top brands to provide a fast turn around and have access to many more if what we stock doesn’t quite meet your needs.  

framing

We currently carry a small collection of wood and metal mouldings and have access to an  entire line of the finest Italian , American and Canadian materials.   

mounting

Mounting is often over looked but we carry all the best materials for ensuring your art is protected. We also hand stretch needle work and art on canvas. We streatch using either the traditional method or the gallery wrap 

finishing

To top off the project all frame projects done by us are ready to hang and include [as needed] the glazing of choice, a dust cover and all hanging hardware.
