Whole Foods
Artworks has been around almost as long as Whole Foods has. They are an institution in Austin whose reputation for quality and service is second to none. My wife, Deborah, and I have used their excellent picture framing team exclusively for all the art we have in our home. We love Artworks and highly recommend them to everyone we know.”

Guero's Taco Bar
We have used Artworks as our framer for years, both in our home and place of business. The friendly, knowledgeable staff always helps us choose the right mat and frame for the job. We appreciate how carefully they transport and hang our larger pieces…taking care of not only the art, but our home in the process. We also enjoy shopping at Artworks for special gifts for each other, family and friends; you won’t find more eclectic choices of fine jewelry, art and glassware anywhere in Austin.

Artworks has all the things I consider important to successful art framing including room on the counters to experiment with colors and woods for the frames and mats. Most importantly they provide professional and experienced advice.

I can always rely on beauty and quality from Artworks.
Over the years I have accumulated some prized pieces of art in my home, magnificently framed by the Artworks staff.
When I need a unique gift for someone special, I always go to Artworks where I can find a beautiful gift in the $20-$50 range and on up in cost to investment grade sculpture or paintings.
Artworks is truly an Austin treasure.

We have been customers of Artworks for twenty years for a reason. Their framing is the best in town and you can trust them implicitly with your most precious photographs and heirlooms. Our home is filled with glass and flat art by artists that rival any we have seen in any other gallery anywhere and we bought them right here in Austin. From depression era to art deco to modern, Artworks is just plain fun.

“The folks at Artworks really know what they’re doing. They removed some pesky mold spots from one of our beloved paintings. Thank you, Artworks.”
“I always take my art to be framed by Artworks. Their choice of frames, mats, and type of glass makes for a frame that is as beautiful and eye-catching as the art itself. Great job, Artworks.”

“We discovered Artworks a few years ago and have been delighted with their creative framing ideas, quality and craftsmanship. We have also used their staff to install several pieces of art in our home and have found them helpful, polite and knowledgeable. They are always willing to go the extra mile for us!”

White Hanks
I’ve always had a great experience having artwork framed by Tom and Rene’ at Artworks. For example, many years ago, they framed 24 serigraphs depicting French women in various regional costumes which my parents purchased on their honeymoon. They suggested using special glass to protect these images from ultraviolet light, and they are still in pristine condition after all these years.

Leon Lasdon
Leon and I are avid collectors of fine Glass by established and new artists. Artworks is heaven for us as Tom Robinson and his staff are so knowledgeable about American Craft as well as having excellent collections of fabrics, vintage glasses, amazing jewelry and other eclectic pieces. As a framer Tom is one of the premier practitioners of this craft and treats every work with respect and a high sense of design in every element.
Most importantly though, Tom and his staff are friendly, helpful and willing to share their expertise. Austin is lucky to have Artworks!

Whole Planet Foundation
Dear Artworks,
“Love your new website! I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else to have my art and pictures framed. Every piece in my home was designed by Tom and company. Each framing is a work of art, yet never competes with the actual art. People are always asking me where I get my art framed. Artworks is also a wonderful place for fine gifts for special people in your life.”

” I not only love all the art pieces that grace my home that came from Artworks but I have greatly appreciated their expertise in framing too. I also had them come to my home and hang a series of wall mounted art glass which just transformed my dining room! They are truly a full service gallery.”
