East of Kimbrough

In the historic Union House.






Danny Bubnick, owner, settled on a location on Union Avenue in the Historic Union House just a few doors down from the original BA Framer in Midtown. The bonus of the move turned out to be 6000 square feet of showroom and work space...enough room to expand on the concept of custom framing, fine art and art prints.


The new Midtown Framer has expanded to become a gallery with original art from Memphis' most talented artists. The gallery is in collaboration with David Simmons' LongRiver Entertainment Group and featured artists that include Stephen Hudson, George Hunt, Nancy Cheairs, Debbie Crawford, David Lynch and Michael Maness.


Midtown Framer's expanded space also features the Midsouth's best selection of Memphis fine art prints and photographs. Music, the river, sports, downtown and aerial photographs...you'll find them all at Midtown Framer.

MIDTOWN FRAMER opened in Memphis in late November 2009 when BA Framer decided to go out of the retail business and focus entirely on wholesale operations. BA Framer had been a fixture on Union Avenue for almost 20 years, and Danny Bubnick had been the store manager for at least 17 years.


Danny's BA Framer store in Memphis led the 100+ store chain in annual sales many of those 17 years as the frame shop developed a large customer base of corporate, government, professional and individual customers.


The new Midtown Framer was born out of Danny's dedication to made sure his long-time, loyal customers still had a quality local source for custom framing. The core staff from BA Framer has joined Danny to help provide the highest quality of customer service and workmanship.

A Tribute to

Responding to the news that our friends and competitors at 1910 Frame Works have announced plans to retire, we want to Salute the Weeks family and their staff at 1910 Frame Works for 40 years as standard bearers in Custom Framing in Memphis.  1910 Frame Works, Davey, Glenn and LinD have been pioneers in delivering creativity, customer service and top quality framing for thousand of Memphians across two or three generations.  1910 Frame Works' high standards have helped propel us over the past 30 years (as BA Framer & Midtown Framer & Art) to match those same framing expectations of customers.   And for that, we at Midtown Framer & Art are grateful.
