Melissa McCaig-Welles first opened her combination gallery and framing business in Brooklyn in 2000, but when she relocated with her family to San Francisco in 2008, she teamed up with Bay Area gallery owner Michael Rosenthal to create a bicoastal venture showcasing emerging and mid-career artists. The one-room Williamsburg gallery now hosts twelve shows a year, reserving a few annual slots for neighborhood artists like Travis Lindquist and Nicholas Kuszyk, whose robot-themed murals grace building walls up and down Bedford Avenue. A worktable in one corner of the gallery is the only evidence of the framing business that occupies the same space; framers work there two days a week, mounting everything from local artists’ prints and paintings to more random keepsakes like T-shirts and magazine covers. The work is top quality and all the frames are made on the premises, including some unconventional options like the “floater frame,” a glass-free board-and-canvas affair in which the artwork appears to hover within a border of rich, brandy-colored wood.
