I have been a resident of Zionsville for almost 40 years now, and have been a devoted and happy customer of CV Art & Frame for the entire time. In fact, I began working with them when they were across the iconic Brick Street, under the name of Corner Vise.
In that time, I have had original artwork, numbered prints, posters, medals, embroidery and sports memorabilia framed by Barbara and her staff as well as bought framed artwork from the Gallery. They have even lovingly and painstakingly refurbished and re-framed a couple of very old and meaningful pictures. I believe I am now 50 pieces and counting for myself and a few gifts for others.
The frame shop has taken my thoughts and ideas, coupled with their expertise and tweaking, and turned each piece into exactly what I wanted. And, their selections of frames is second to none.
CV Art & Frame is a staple of the Zionsville community, experts in all aspects of their field, and more importantly, in my case anyway, more like extended family.
Great customer service. They have a full selection of frames and hundreds of matte colors.
Barbara & Rhonda are great at making you feel welcome, very smart about art & the artist plus they go the extra mile to find what you are looking for!!!! We will be back
Great customer service and frame selections.
I have had both print and canvas work done and couldn’t be more pleased. Great selection of Thomas Kinkade also.
We have been CV Art and Frame (f/k/a Corner Vise Gallery & Frame Shop) customers 30 years and almost all of our art work has been purchased and/or framed by CV. Barbara and her staff have consistently been extraordinarily knowledgeable and helpful in their guidance and suggestions over these many years to include “house calls” !

This is the best art and frame shop in the whole wide world!! Thank you so much Barbara, Rhonda and John! You outdid yourselves on the two pieces for our pastor’s retirement and I am grateful! I truly appreciate your keen eye, and your gracious help! It has been my pleasure to know you, Barbara, for over 30 years. You and your staff always hit a home run on selecting just the right frames and mats as well in your attention to detail and fine craftsmanship in building the frames. You are all so gifted at what you do, and truly appreciated! Thank you for once again going above and beyond and exceeding my expectations! Blessings to you all, Katie
The Corner Vise Frame Shop put together a military collage for me to showcase some of my achievements in the U.S. Army. I could not be happier with the way that it turned out! Upon first glance, it is undeniably apparent that great care and detail went into constructing this piece. This collage was immensely important to me because it showcases achievements that I am deeply proud of. I can now look at the wall and remember these moments in a proud manner because of The Corner Vise Frame Shop. Others can look at the piece and appreciate my blood, sweat, and tears in a way that is only possible through detailed and careful construction. I thank The Corner Vise Frame Shop very much for my favorite piece of art in my home! I will definitely be doing business with them again and I know that I don’t have to worry about the creation being anything less than superior work! Thanks!
My wife and I have collected antique maps and Japanese woodblocks for decades and had them framed in the best framing shops in the places we’ve lived all over the world. We recently had two maps and four woodblocks framed at Corner Vise Gallery, where we worked with Rhonda Crawshaw and Barbara Jennings to select the perfect combination of mat board, framing, and glass to best show off each piece. We were stunned when we picked up the finished work; everything was better than expected, perfect, in fact. We’ll be back soon and would encourage anyone in the area to bring your art to Corner Vise and be prepared to be as pleased as we are with their work.
First visited with Corner Vise and Thomas Kinkade Gallery in mid 2012. This is one of only two gold galleries in the entire state of Indiana! Since that time we have purchased several Thomas Kinkade prints from this shop. Not only did I feel quite welcome, but my whole family did. This was such a positive experience that I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend this team to help you with any questions and canvas you may want to research and possibly purchase. I never once felt pressured to buy anything. These folks know their business and that too was of the upmost importance to me. Today, it is a known fact, that there are a lot of counterfeit prints in circulation and I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt the canvases sold here are genuine. I also believe the pricing to be competitive. To ice the cake last Christmas season we actually got to meet Patrick Kinkade, brother of the late Thomas Kinkade. Patrick is a certified highlighter of Thomas Kinkade paintings.
I can’t guarantee you will meet a highlighter, but I do know Barbara, Rhonda and the team will do all they can to make your time at their gallery an experience you will not forget. Even if you are not sure you want to buy any paintings I would highly recommend taking a day to visit their shop and learn more about some of the fine art they carry. You will be blessed.

Barbara and her Team are a joy to work with. Their framing choices and guidance are the best I have experienced. When my clients enter my gallery, I routinely hear comments about the beauty of the frames and how well they compliment my images. All of my framing is done at the Conner Vise and has been for a number of years. If you want great results while working with a professional Team, I strongly recommend Corner Vise.

The staff at the Corner Vise Gallery and Frame Shop has framed several needlepoint pieces for me over the last few years. They are all of a beach theme and are hanging in our condominium in Florida. They needed not your average frame, but something more whimsical, and I was having trouble envisioning the end product. I knew I needed expert advice so I went to the Corner Vise. Everyone there is very creative in suggesting options to design the perfect look for any piece. Beginning with the stretching of the needlepoint to the final result, I’ve been very pleased with each one. Friends and relatives who have visited rave over the frames. The needlepoint is easy, but the frame makes the art. After putting in hundreds of hours working on a canvas, I want the final look to be perfect. I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else!
