7/29/2023: Happy Summer and Huge Sale!

Hello friends! We’ve been trying to get our ducks in a row and get you updated with what’s going on at Focus Gallery, but in the interest of time we’ve decided to settle on having geese in a row instead!

We hope summer is treating you all well. We’ve got lots of new artwork on display here at the gallery, and its ALL on sale in-store! Starting Saturday, July 29th (Sidewalk Sales day here in Frankfort!) we are running our Summer Sale, with discounts on everything in our shop! Be sure to stop by the gallery when you are in Frankfort - and hurry, the best deals won’t last long!

08/28/2022: Summer is Over! (We Can't Believe it Either!)

Welp - that time has come again. The end of the summer is fast approaching. With August coming to a close and fall bird migration well underway, it's that time for us to start our fall migration towards a weekends-only schedule.

Next week we will be open Tuesday 8/30, Wednesday 8/31 and Thursday 9/1 from 11am to 3pm. We will be open 10-5 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day Weekend and closed on Labor Day. We will be open again on Friday, 9/9 and Saturday, 9/10 from 10-5, but closed on Sunday, 9/11 due to the Ironman race happening in town.

We will be weekends-only after this through fall color season and will post more updates to our schedule as it is finalized. Thank you again for a great summer 2022! Be sure to check out our galleries for new photos being posted all the time and remember we are producing and shipping our artwork year-round, so let us know if we can help you fill blank spaces on your walls!

08/08/2022: Summer Updates!

Summer Updates!

Hello out there and happy summer!  

Sorry for the radio silence but we've been busily working away here at Focus Gallery, with a great summer well under way and lots of new work on display and online!

I'm very excited to have my first batch of pictures from our trip to Botswana and Zimbabwe online as of today.  I'm still working on narrowing down the 30,000+ images I made on the trip, but have a great first set online and I'm happy to share them with you.  You can find them in the "New Images" gallery here.  I'm hoping to start printing some of these soon and have them on the walls of the gallery too, but in the mean time please enjoy a first look on the website!

I've also been working on getting more of our image archive on the website, and you'll now find a lot of new images in a number of the Michigan galleries covering subjects near Frankfort - Crystal Lake, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Point Betsie, etc - see the Galleries or use our Search Archives page to browse this new work!  There's a lot more in the pipeline, so stay tuned...

Carl has also brought in a big batch of new original artwork as well - a mix of watercolors and pen and ink work of a wide variety of wildlife subjects - be sure to come check those out as they won't last long!  They're not yet on the website, but are on display here at the gallery.

We're open in the gallery most days from 10-5.  We are usually closed on Mondays but open every other day.  Please stop in and see us if you're around Frankfort!  Also remember that we produce and ship orders year-round and all over the country and even abroad - let us know if we can be of service!

Be safe out there and thanks for all the support!

05/23/2022: Spring Updates!

Hello friends and Happy Spring!

Apologies for the long silence, but we’ve been hard at work getting ready for a great 2022 season at the gallery!

Although Drew will be headed to Southern Africa on a family trip, Carl and Ginny plan to have the store open for Memorial Day Weekend. The gallery will be open Saturday and Sunday from 10-5, and Monday (Memorial Day) from 10-3. If you’re in Frankfort please stop by and say hi and see some of Carl’s amazing new paintings and photographs.

Please note: While masks are not required, they are strongly recommended for all visitors to Focus Gallery. Given the recent spike in Covid cases lets all do our part to slow the spread!

In what is unlikely to be surprising news, we will be raising our prices at Focus this summer to account for the across-the-board increases in everything we buy to make our art. Memorial Day Weekend will be the last day we operate under 2021 pricing, so if you’ve been looking to make a purchase this might be a good time to pull the trigger! We are finalizing a new price list this week based on new numbers from all of our suppliers – many of our prices will be going up 10-15% to account for these new realities. The new pricing will be active this week on the website, so be sure to place your orders in person with Carl and Ginny when the gallery is open this weekend to take advantage of 2021 pricing.

In one bit of good news, our new 2022 online pricing will include free shipping for all purchases. However, the general reality is that everything we are buying and all shipping costs a lot more this year than last year, and we have had to make this change to attempt to keep up with rising prices on our supplies.

Final schedules for the rest of spring and summer will be posted when we have them pinned down. We expect to be up and running regularly by the third week of June or so, but we’ll keep you posted. Please note that all orders placed in the coming few weeks will take a little longer than normal to produce since Drew will be away from the office. All orders will be produced upon his return from Africa in mid-June.

We look forward to a great 2022 season and sharing some amazing new work with all of you (including an exhibit of new wildlife images from Africa!). Be safe and well!

Drew, Carl and Ginny

New Website!

Welcome to the online galleries of Focus Gallery. We hope you enjoy the new website!  We are looking forward to having more images online and being able to update the site more frequently, so stay tuned!  

Some of the galleries and links will have only a few images in them at first.  Our plan is to fill out these galleries over the coming weeks and months, and having a much larger number of images available through out Search Archives page as well.  Our goal is to have as much of our library of images online as possible to make it easier to find the perfect solution for your wall or publication needs.

If you were in the process of placing an order via our old website, fear not - all of the options and images available on our old site remain available at this time.  If you don't see a product or finish option you were interested in (such as framing options, etc.), or if you run into any difficulties using the new site, please use our Contact page or call Drew at 703-585-3894 and we will make sure you get what you are looking for!
