“Greg Drinkwine's extensive knowledge of American frames and meticulous craftsmanship places him among the elite of young master craftsmen working today. We look forward to presenting the solo exhibition Triumph of Craftsmanship: Arts and Crafts Frames by Greg Drinkwine at the Nevada Museum of Art in 2011. Visitors and collectors will be amazed by these beautiful works of art – and by how dramatically a picture can be enhanced when framed by one of Drinkwine’s distinctive designs.”

“Greg Drinkwine has framed turn-of-the-century paintings for the Crocker Art Museum with much success. Each painting had unique challenges that Greg was able to resolve in a beautiful way. I would highly recommend Craftsman Frame Co.”

“Craftsman Frames has provided us with exceptional service for many years. Their attention to detail and ability to stay on schedule have made them our "go-to" framing company. From small paintings to multi-million dollar masterpieces they've always delivered as promised.”

“We started using Craftsman Frames a few years ago and have always been satisfied with their results. Frames are completed in a timely manner, the quality is superb, and their attention to overall detail cannot be questioned. I recommend this company without hesitation.”

Stuart Johnson
Settlers West Gallery

"I see many works of art coming to auction with old and new frames, some of great quality, others not so. When I was framing my own collecting, I wanted a framer who understood my art and had the skill set required to produce a frame of distinction, but also with its own individuality to complement each work. Greg, looked at my art and we mutually agreed on what would and would not work with each painting. I was and am very happy with the quality of each and every frame he produced and would thus highly recommend Craftsman Frame Co. to anyone looking to enhance a work of art with a beautifully carved frame."

"I have been purchasing Craftsman frames for over 5 years and they have always exceeded my expectations. They have framed Sharps, Couses, Cortes, Renoirs and many others with styles and craftsmanship that rivals the originals. The quality and finishes are second to none!"

“Fine dining and fine art have one thing in common… presentation! When it comes to presenting art there is none finer than Craftsman Frame. An original by Greg Drinkwine is the perfect compliment to your art. Each is an original recreation of an authentic period frame, thoroughly researched, hand-carved and hand gilded in 22K gold, and made to exacting specifications. These frames are an investment in history that will be appreciated by generations to come.”

Gordon Peters

"I am exceptionally pleased with the Craftsman frames I have ordered. These hand-carved, guilt frames are museum quality, crafted to the highest standards. The artworks fitted to these frames reside in our living room and regularly receive recognition, the most of any artworks in the collection. The large variety of styles and widths provides customers with many choices. The website gives accurate renditions for each frame style which is helpful in making a choice. I chose a six inch width frame for a 19th Century English Pre Raphaelite water color and a two and three-quarter width frame for a self-portrait by a gifted emerging artist. Greg Drinkwine was personable and flexible in producing frames that met my needs. I look forward to future purchases from Craftsman Frame."

“As a longtime owner of one of the premier Art Galleries in Northern Nevada and an avid collector of fine paintings. I had the good fortune to commission the Craftsman Frame Company to provide frames for both gallery works and my own personal collection. The excellent quality of their product coupled with their in depth knowledge of historical framing motifs, was of great value to me. A combination of reliability (so rare in these times) and precision in meeting the exact requirements of the client both served to exceed my expectations in each of our businesses transactions. I wholeheartedly recommend Craftsman Frame Company to anyone who is seeking the highest quality of consistently fine workmanship and dependable service for their framing needs.”

Former Owner, The Davis Gallery of Fine Art

“Greg Drinkwine is a rare individual who has managed to create stunning frames that will be admired for generations to come. The precision of his frames are truly inspiring, and it shows that even in a modern society today with everyone in a hurry with computer made products that Greg has managed to step back in time. Even the masters of those eras would be impressed with Greg's craftsmanship. It is truly rare to find frames that are works of art themselves and done/finished completely by hand. His attention to detail is off the charts. Greg Drinkwine is a frame maker without peers.”

John Sanders

“My name is Scott Tallman Powers. I am a professional artist here in Chicago, and I recently had the pleasure of working with Greg Drinkwine at Craftsman Frames. I was in need of a museum quality framer for a one-man show and Greg was recommended by my gallery owner, Stuart Johnson. I can not say enough good things about my experience working with him. It was a painless and enjoyable experience talking with Greg about what frames would best suit my work. When I received my frames, I was extremely excited. It was the best work I have seen from a custom framer. Greg is and has the eye of a true artist. The combination of the two is rare. So I look forward to a long future working with Greg Drinkwine. I would recommend him to anyone who wants their work to have a frame that is worthy of any museum.”

"A quality frame is the final piece in the ensemble of an artist's creation. I have used Craftsman Frames for over 10 years because of the quality and art in their work. The frames are exquisitely carved and the attention to detail in the finish is impeccable. Both artists and collectors should treat themselves to the old world craftsmanship of these truly artistic frames."
