Norton’s Fine Art & Framing has been owned and operated by the same service-oriented family since 1949.
In the 1940’s Ruth Norton was an interior decorator, and her husband, Cecil, an architect/engineer with Norton Company Designers. In 1949 they created a business to merge their respective fields. From these roots, Norton’s has evolved into a unique custom, conservation framing, and restoration services gallery. Doug, Mary, and their son, Ty, endeavor to bring together great art, as well as creative, professional picture framing, restoration services and dedicated customer service.
Doug Norton, CPF, and Mary Norton, CPF, of Norton’s Fine Art & Framing, are charter members of the Professional Picture Framers Association’s Certified Picture Framer Program.
The gallery carries a wide variety of artwork, including original watercolors, paintings, lithographs, etchings, serigraphs, landscapes, historical maritime, sports, and St. Louis art, by regional as well as national and international artists.
“As certified picture framers, the gallery owners “package” art as beautifully as they display it. The gallery and frame shop was started in 1949 and remains a fixture in St. Louis more than a half- century later. Today, the second and third generations of Norton’s run the gallery, with the purpose of bringing together the finest in artwork and creative framing. Each year, the gallery hosts three to four exhibits”. – DigitalCity
