" Over the last 40 plus years, our experience with Nielsen Gallery have been those of totally satisfied customers. Christine, like her parents before her, provides work of exceptional quality. She listens and suggests as a means of aiding the customer's decision all the while with a heart-warming smile! We highly recommend the Gallery."

"We discovered Nielsen Gallery years ago. Since then we have made frequent trips to Bay City to have artwork framed. Christine Nielsen has an eye in offering suggestions for framing and matting that compliments our art collections."

Gail and Larry Toft

" In the early 90's I was recommended to Nielsen Gallery to frame a cross-stitch piece of mine. Christine's expertise is second to none and the framing selection is outstanding. The finished product exceeded my expectations and have had many pieces framed since. I highly recommend Nielsen Gallery for your artwork purchases and framing needs. You will not be disappointed."

"Nielsen Gallery has been doing all my framing for over 35 years. Christine has the gift for bringing out the soul of any piece she frames, from lithograph to watercolor, embroidery to folk art. She works well with me to achieve the best presentation of each piece I've had framed. Even though I live out of state, I have always and will continue to use Nielsen Gallery for all my framing needs."

"Over the years, I have always enlisted Christine's help with the framing of portraits and fine art pieces. She has an extensive selection of frames and artistic eye for colors, textures, and matting to really compliment the art. When it came time to chose art for my office, Christine helped select pieces that warmed up the space and stayed within our budget. I have also chosen several pieces from her gallery for my home."

"Most of the items in my house were framed at the Nielsen Gallery. We have used them for over 25 years for everything from travel posters to diplomas to fine art prints. The personal service in helping to select the right frame and mat and the professionalism and attention to detail have kept us coming back. Highly recommended."

"Christine's mounting/framing suggestions were invaluable, especially concerning our 'travel treasures'. Through the years she has also provided prints and custom frames for my husband's office. He first got acquainted with her products and services at the recommendation of his interior designer( Kathy Staudacher). The quality of her work is outstanding! Her creative ideas are presented in an unintimidating manner. Christine is forthcoming, friendly, and fun! "

"With Christine, you are greeted with a contagious happy smile. She is the only person I trust to frame my prints. She has an extraordinary eye for selecting colors and materials. From her workbench to my walls- she will even come to my home to assist in proper hanging of new art. I am grateful for Christine's dedication to her many customers like me."

"Of all the framers in the world, Nielsen Gallery is the absolute best. Christine has an amazing eye for selecting a frame that will best highlight the work of the artist. I have been having my works " enhanced" by her for more than two decades. The quality of her work is superb."

"I first became a client of Nielsen Gallery in the 1980's to mat and frame my photographs and have always received courteous service and professional advice. Owner Christine Nielsen abides by the business lessons taught her by her Norwegian immigrant parents of quality customer satisfaction through attention to details, product knowledge and a good eye for composition and color. I recommend Nielsen Gallery for your framing needs. "

"I have been a customer of Nielsen Gallery for 40 years. I have had numerous prints, paintings, needlework and memorabilia/ collections framed by Christine. Her work is amazing and creative. My feeling is if it's worth framing it should be done by a professional, and that's what Christine is. I highly recommend her for framing and also for purchasing art for your home and business."

I've always been impressed with her creative genius when I've experienced difficulty making a decision on how to frame or mat a particular piece of art. She's the ultimate perfectionist and prides herself on a job well-done. I've never been disappointed. She also has access to many artists and I've been able to make some great purchases with her assistance. Christine Nielsen has helped me make my home and office beautiful. "

"Christine has a creative eye. I have my personal art framed by her because her ideas always enhance the piece. She has helped me decorate my home and my office with works of art from her gallery. Christine is one of a kind, and I would trust no one else with my art or framing needs."
