Boulevard Fine Art & Custom Framing

 New Gallery Opens At The Old Post Office In The Heart Of Nokomis

Interior designers, home decorators and anyone who appreciates beautiful fine art are in for a treat. Chicago neighborhood favorite Boulevard Fine Art & Custom Framing has opened a new gallery at 110 Colonia Lane East in downtown Nokomis. And the cool thing is, the gallery is located at the site of Nokomis’ old Post Office!

“I love this space,” says Boulevard owner and Chicago artist David Manola, who shares the business with his wife Ellen, a 30-year custom framer.

Boulevard Fine Art has filled the former 5,000 square foot Post Office with an international collection of original art from well-known established artists and new artists. Manola says the artwork ranges in style from traditional to contemporary and the prices range from comfortable to investment. Manola has a fine arts degree from Art Institute of Chicago and he spent his career working at noted Chicago galleries. He opened his first gallery in 1996 in Oak Park, Illinois. The new gallery in Nokomis is his second gallery. Ellen Manola owned her own framing shop, and she brings 30 years of framing experience to Boulevard Fine Art. The couple’s oldest son Marco is a computer animation and design artist who graduated from Ringling College.

“We went from being a small frame shop that offered some art to a larger gallery with a lot of art and a full-service Custom Framing Department,” says Manola. “We specialize in original fine contemporary art. There’s beautiful art for every taste.”

The Manolas have worked with many top interior designers in the Chicago area and for years they shipped art nationally and internationally. “Designers appreciate our big selection of original art and elegant frames, and we aim to inspire with our popular on-site consultations.” Boulevard Fine Art also has a unique lifetime trade-in agreement, and a 24-hour approval plan so you can see and try the art on location.

The Manolas are looking forward to working with designers from Sarasota to Naples.

“We’re open at the Post Office in Nokomis,” adds David. “Send yourself to us!”
