Collectors Gallery and Framery has been in Historic Downtown Venice, Florida since 1983. In 2006, it moved around the corner from Venice Avenue to the first block of S. Nokomis Avenue between the Venice Wine & Coffee Company and Bella Luna. Proprietor Leah Sherman looks forward to your visit.
Framer – George “Ed” Morrison is a native of Philadelphia, PA where his passions were hiking, biking and building and flying radio controlled aircraft. As a young adult Ed was with Rainbow River Tours serving as tugboat deckhand, marine mechanic and tour boat Captain. In 2007, Paradise beckoned and Ed and wife Maria re-located to Englewood, Florida. Ed trained as a picture framer in Tampa, Florida and never looked back. His attention to detail is exceptional and he has always enjoyed the challenge of “taking a box of sticks and making something look great”.
Proprietor/Designer – Leah Sherman is from the Mid-South, Memphis, Tennessee. Her studies include art history and archeology, painting and costume design. Leah worked as a psychologist in Lima and Mansfield, Ohio, and then headed south to Miami, Fl where she lived on a sailboat, and worked for many years in real estate sales and management. Her artistic nature proved useful in staging the homes she remodeled and decorated for fun and profit. Leah is an avid collector and looks at life as an adventure.
