The Oyster House Studio and Frame Shop has relocated from Waldoboro to 77 Main St., downtown near the bridge. According to owners/framers/artists Yvette Bouchard and Eric Michelsen, the new location offers a large display area for frame design and art work and a spacious workshop to serve customers in a comfortable and efficient environment.

The Jewelry Wall by Anne Brown, unique pottery bowls and vases by Linda Bender and Bouchard’s and Michelsen’s latest paintings, photographs and drawings are displayed. In addition, A Fine Thing: Edward T. Pollack Fine Arts of Portland will be exhibiting an intriguing group of fine art and objets d’art in the Collectors Corner.

Known for the fine quality of their design and craftsmanship and expertise in handling fine art, Bouchard and Michelsen, who are married, have collaborated as fine art framers since 1984. They personally create each framed piece from design to frame building to fit up.

As the name of their shop originated in Cotuit on Cape Cod, a village renowned for its oysters, Bouchard and Michelsen said they are pleased to find that their shop is once again situated in an area of superlative oysters. They will hang a giant oyster above their door to honor their new location.
