Nature of Art opened its doors in February of 1980 in Kildaire Plaza,
the first shopping center on Kildaire Farm Road in Cary, N.C.
The custom and do-it-yourself framing options were very popular and
owner, Judie Howard, made many lasting friendships with her customers.
at the Waverly Place Shopping Center, local artists' paintings, pottery, wood, glass, and jewelry were
welcomed in and made the store a favorite gallery as well as a frame
shop. Art classes for teens and adults were a comfortable addition and
flourished in the friendly atmosphere.
The Nature of Art operates from Judie's home workshop and studio where
custom framing can be offered in a more relaxed and
personal way. She now has the freedom to offer "Have
frames, will travel", a mobile frame service for customers who prefer
a consultation in their own home or office.
