I have had innumerable pieces of art (original oils, lithographs, memorobilia, etc.) framed by Fancy Art in downtown Barrington for the last several years.
In these days of careless or even shoddy workmanship, I can always count on George M Vodin for ideas on layout, frame, color and other variables that come into play when framing a special piece of artwork or cherished memory for me.
Additionally, when I married my husband several years ago, he also has had several pieces of work done here and has become an avid supporter of George’s quality workmanship and wonderful customer service as well.
Anyone desiring to have anything framed that is special or cherished by them, would be well pleased by the superior quality of work and timeliness done by Fancy Artwork.Judy and Gary Leven
We took pictures to Fancy Art and had them framed to use in our funeral home and they came out great! They look wonderful and are definitely an asset to the space they’re in.
Thank you so much for the great work, we will definitely use and recommend Fancy Art in the future!

Had a very nice experience in here today when I went in to have a Vargas girl framed; the owner/framer was helpful, informative, witty, and knew how to sell subtly. I spent more money there than I’d originally wanted to (I seem to be noting this quite often in reviews lately…) but that is fair enough.
On getting Vargas-girl back…she’s beautiful. The frame recommended for the colors and price range I gave is perfect, and the owner/framer did an exquisite job. I paid less than I might have at Michael’s or any other frame shop. Perfect for art gifts – worth the drive if you’re not local.
Beautiful selection of frames and prints at very competitive prices. I’ll certainly be back.Eva H.
I wish I could give them more stars! The glass in my frame broke and I needed to present framed art work early this afternoon. I drove over to Fancy Art and the young lady behind the counter took charge. Not only did she cut the glass to size, she followed every necessary step to properly frame art work and did it all in a few minutes. Now I have a quality product to deliver two hours from now and I will be very proud to hand it over.
Thank you Fancy Art for saving my day and making me look good! Fantastic service!!Mary D.
I have taken countless expensive posters and other original non-replaceable art to NFP, have had nothing less than stellar experiences. The art was well handled, framed correctly, and the one time something was not perfect to my standards, Brent took care of me right away! Highly recommend this place!
I had a Indian summer picture from the Chicago Tribune 1948 mounted and framed. Lisa helped to pick out the frame and helped mount and frame it. Outstanding job highly recommend Fancy Art NFP. Good job.

They don’t have appetizers or a wine bar, but they have a GREAT staff and a huge selection of framing and matting. From simple and inexpensive to elegant and modern. Very creative help from the staff.
I have been coming here for a year and have done a dozen projects. From fine art to simple office prints and shadow boxes.
Don’t waste your time going to Michael’s… Just get in here. You can go next door for a snack at Trader Joe’s if you need a nosh!Harley P
