FINE ART & FRAMING FOR OVER 50 YEARS
In 1946 Coffey & Thompson opened a custom picture framing business, responding to a demand for this type of service in uptown Charlotte, NC. The operation quickly became recognized as the benchmark for fine art and framing in the region. After 30 very successful years, the Annex Gallery of Coffey & Thompson opened in the adjoining building, formally dedicated to the presentation of art. It provided a unique opportunity for regional and local artists to have shown and display their artwork. Eventually, the gallery branched out to include national and international artists as well.
In 1990 Coffey & Thompson moved to their present mid-town location, incorporating all its branches under one roof, and providing it with a spacious showroom, storefront parking, and more modern facilities. It has become an eclectic and traditional meeting place for the entire community offering original and traditional artwork, oil and watercolor paintings, sculpture, carvings, pottery, specially commissioned artwork and limited edition prints.
The gallery has provided extensive artwork to the largest financial corporations in the Southeast and continues to be instrumental in the commissioning of artwork for the community.
