This summer, Fabulous Frames & Art in Montgomery, OH is proud to host an exhibit of long-lost original paintings by the late, great Cincinnati artist Charley Harper. The show will run July 11th through August 8th, with an opening reception on Saturday, July 11th at 10817 Montgomery Road.

Included in the exhibit will be approximately 50 original paintings created by Charley for Ford Times and Lincoln Mercury Times magazines between 1948 and 1982. The illustrations were reproduced in the magazines, but the originals were thought to have been lost until they were discovered in a Ford Motor Company vault earlier this year.

With the permission of Edsel Ford II, the entire collection was returned to the Harper family, which organized this exhibit with Fabulous Frames & Art, an art gallery and custom-framing shop that has had a relationship with the Harpers for over 30 years. Charley’s son Brett Harper will be on hand during the opening reception to introduce this important body of work.
