In the Beginning:
The beginning was in the mid 90's in Gautier, MS where I first owned Magnolia Framing and Gallery. After moving back to Pheba I opened this business in downtown Starkville in October 2000. The Framer's Remarque & Gallery has provided the very best in custom framing and I am proud to offer high quality workmanship and special care for detail. Additionally, my staff and I understand and foster an appreciation for the creation of personal artwork. After collaberating with several artists I added classes in visual arts and pottery in 2004, under the name Main Street Arts. The business now runs under one name, Main Street Arts, this name best reflects every aspect of this business. It is my sincere desire to continue to provide everything you possibly need to learn, be creative, enjoy and preserve your most precious works of art.
Come by and let me or one of my staff show you the Main Street Arts facility, and I feel sure once you have looked around and seen the products and studios that MSA has you will want to come experence art with us.
Where we're going:
It is the goal of Main Street Arts faculty and staff to provide the knowledge needed to produce your own artwork and preserve artwork such as family heirlooms, children’s masterpieces and decorative art. As we encourage life long learning in fine arts we have implemented art classes for children and adults. Our knowledgeable staff will give advice in the best materials and techniques while assisting you in choosing the framing for your favorite pieces of art. Tour our website then come and experience fine art with Main Street Arts.
Linda Wade Owner/Manager/Framer
I have been in the art business since 1994 when my husband and I bought Magnolia Framing Gallery in Gautier MS. I sold it and moved back home to Pheba, MS and in 2000 I opened The Framers Remarque on Main Street in Starkville, MS. In 2004, with the help of a team of very talented and dedicated artist, Main Street Arts opened for classes and we've been growing since. In January 2010 I moved the entire business to our current location.
