Excellence in Framing since 1979
Peter and Janice Maxson acquired Omar’s Custom Picture Framing in Costa Mesa, California in 1979. “Omar’s Framing” is still featured on our signage, and continues a tradition of excellence and service that has distinguished the gallery since the mid-sixties.
Peter’s Gallery has the distinction of being the last true “full-service” framing gallery serving southern Orange County and the Newport Coast cities of Newport Beach, Corona del Mar, Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa and Irvine. Among its over 5000 picture frame corner samples, the gallery offers traditional cut-and-mitered construction wood frames; ready-made gallery frames; custom joined closed-corner decorative framing; custom wood finishes; museum-quality 22 karat gold leaf frames; as well as welded metal and leather finished frames.
Our client list is large and varied, ranging from homeowners and collectors to artists, designers, and real-estate developers. The geographical reach of Peter’s Gallery has now grown beyond the Newport Coast area of Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar, Huntington Beach, and Irvine. With the access of the internet, and the Web presence of our sister sites MuseumClassics and TV CoverUps, our reach extends from Coast to Coast.
In 2001, Peter and Janice established MuseumClassics.com, an online resource for fine art reproductions, original oil paintings and custom picture framing.
The gallery’s growing capabilities helped establish a relationship with Polo Ralph Lauren and Ralph Lauren Home in Los Angeles, to furnish elegant and creative additions to its clothing displays, room décor and shop windows. As a result, Peter’s Gallery is the only picture framer featured in the prestigious Ralph Lauren City Guide for the Greater Los Angeles Area.
One of the keys to creativity in picture framing at any level is a balance between art and engineering – often combining beauty with strength and practicality. Closer to home, Peter’s Gallery was selected by the Irvine Corporation to outfit its Newport Coast Home Finding Center. The center featured large scale wall maps and displays utilizing custom closed-corner frames 17 to 20 feet in length by 13 feet in height, assembled on-site after delivery through the existing 9 foot entry doors.
