Michael McNabney Pet Portraits At All Creatures Great And Small


Local Artist Michael McNabney will be exhibiting his Pet Portraits at the All Creatures Great And Small exhibit opening on Earth Day, April 22, 2017 at 6:00 PM. Michael began the project after he was awarded an artist residency and traveled to the village of Polknovik Serafimovo, Bulgaria. On a walk through the village he met a dog, he had no idea at the time she was an abandoned dog that had been rescued and given shelter by “Little Angels Rescue BG”; who had apparently gone on a walk of her own away from the shelter. In time he was invited on a sunrise dog walk in the mountains by some people that were taking care of the animals at Little Angels Rescue. To his surprise, there was the same dog leading the pack. Michael was told “Fliss” had “escaped” a few days earlier, and then returned. Fliss had been at the animal rescue for five months waiting for adoption. Michael’s family had a safe and loving home for her but no funds for the costly transportation and expense to adopt here in the U.S. Michael reached out through GoFundMe to help bring Fliss home. In return for donations at different levels he offers original artwork as an expression of gratitude. Custom oil on canvas pet portraits, drawings of your pet, and hand printed and signed numbered block prints are available as a thank you gifts. https://www.gofundme.com/adopting-fliss-transport-fund-2vmux9g.

Studio 33 Art & Frame Gallery presents Statement Makers – Work In Progress. The exhibit features the work of G. Roger Clements, Architectural Designer, Artist,Photographer (BFA, Graphic Design); Founder and Principal of Sasqua Designs, LLC; Board Member Lyme Art Assoc., and New London Maritime Society/Custom House Maritime Museum Trustee. Through his photographic lens and maquette’s Roger takes a look at selected New London buildings, showcasing many that have been cared for to historically preserve and beautify them. We honor those owners who have invested in their city. A significant number of once lovely buildings, sadly neglected or abused, have been exposed as a marked contrast to what is represented in the city. This exhibit draws your attention especially to those blighted buildings and the potential to restore them to their original grandeur. Roger’s goal is not to revel in the unpleasant aspects of the built world but rather to focus his eye on it through merging traditional media in the hope that his work will render the world a cleaner, more pleasant place to live in. “The choice to move to New London was incredibly logical. It’s architectural stock is fabulous and the work that has already been attended to gives a wonderful base from which to build. New London is a star waiting to be born”. – G. Roger Clements. An Artist’s Reception will be held on Sept. 12, 2015, 6 to 9PM, the exhibit will close Oct. 10, 2015 at 3PM. An Artist’s Talk, open to the public, will be presented on Sept. 25, 2015, 6 to 8PM, 140 Bank St., New London, CT. Visit us at httpa//studio33gallery.com/:::studio33gallery.com.

35 years

35 yearsIn 2014, Studio 33 Art and Frame Gallery celebrates its thirty-fifth anniversary as a custom picture framing shop and art gallery in New London.

Sara Munro

Studio 33 employees led by their owner, Sara Munro, bring a combined 40 years of conservation custom picture framing experience to the table. Munro bought the established New London business from her employer and friend in 2006, and has expanded the framing services to include a ready-made frame room. Frames Down Under, named for the late Robert Hauschild has standard size high quality frames and many prints, including some local scenes. Munro has also added a large collection of local, handmade treasures featuring work of local artists as well as hosting art shows for talented established and emerging local artists. Studio 33 represents Robert Hauschild by housing a rotating collection of his works.
The main-stay is the complete in-house custom picture framing services, including paper, photo, painting, and frame restoration. From an art standpoint, the shop can do it all. Not only can the art be restored, it can be framed with more than 4,000 in-store frame samples, or with others available through the gallery’s suppliers. Then the art, if it is for sale, can be hung and displayed in an art show, and advertised on the new website, or taken home and enjoyed by the satisfied owners.


The gallery, located between the Custom House Maritime Museum and Waterhouse Salon on Bank St, is a place where customers can bring in their work and know it won’t be sent away to be handled by strangers. Everything is done right there with an eye on quality and safety. For a company that has been built on conservation, quality and customer satisfaction the goal continues for the next thirty five years.


The staff at Studio 33 specialize in conservation framing, using only museum grade, acid free materials in mats and mounting boards. Glazing options cover a wide range from regular glass, ultraviolet light blocking, non-glare, and high quality museum glass and plexi. Munro and company give professional advice and have a loyal stream of customers clamoring for her and her staff’s expertise when it comes to framing their investments and precious memories and stand behind their work. Studio 33 strives to work with customer’s budgets and timeframes. We surround the customer’s art work with our own high quality materials and design expertise.

Some of Studio 33’s more unusual jobs have included documents signed by Mark Twain, Abraham Lincoln and many other presidents, an Andrew Wyeth original painting, an etching by Renoir, and aboriginal bark paintings to name a few.  Studio 33 goes beyond just the framing, as evidenced by the hanging system they engineered to rotate a painting and a television.


In celebration of the 35 year milestone Studio 33 Art and Frame Gallery will be offering celebrations and special shows all year long. Stop by in February and receive a secret envelope which will contain discounts on in-stock molding ranging from 10-30%.

Studio 33 Art and Frame Gallery is located at 140 Bank St in New London, Ct. Winter hours are M- F 9-5 and Sat 10-3. They can be found online at www.studio33gallery.com and on their facebook page.
