Are you looking for an affordable way to add drama to walls of your home? Stop by the Fabulous Frames & Art downtown gallery at 17 West 4th St. to take a look at these gorgeous framed large-format nature prints, plus many more framed and unframed pieces by notable artists including Charley Harper, John Ruthven, Charles Frace, Edie Harper, Bev Erschell, Brett Harper, and more.


Above is a vibrant color photograph by Joseph Holmes, who is a noted nature photographer and an enthusiastic outdoorsman as well. William Vanscoy’s goal as an artist is to capture the transitory beauty of life and nature. He believes that “it’s not what’s seen but what’s expressed that makes photographic art”:

Back by popular demand are two large-format black and white photographic prints by noted photographers Hamilton Aguilar and Mark Citret. Hamilton Aguiar is a Brazilian artist who has a hauntingly beautiful way of capturing light and textures. This oversized photograph has drama and simplicity, and a way of drawing you into the scene:

A Bay Area photographer, Mark Citret has the sensibility of a Post-minimalist: he pares down a scene to the essentials of plane, line, pattern, rhythm, light and shadow:
