A Little Background
Bayview Framing & Art has been a part of downtown Ladysmith since 2000. In 2010, it was sold by Mike Moulds, who founded the business with Wendy Rawluk, to Wanda Dombrowski.
Wanda is a painter and she and her husband Bruce Whittington, a photographer, were former Bayview customers.
Bayview Framing’s home is Nicholson Cottage, built in 1900 as a family home by Dan Nicholson, who later became a mayor of Ladysmith.
Wanda and Bruce have continued the Bayview tradition of quality workmanship at reasonable prices. They are strong supporters of the local arts community and are proud to show the work of many talented local artists.
Bayview is also proud to support the 10% Shift initiative, which encourages people in the community to “shift” a small percentage of their spending elsewhere to local businesses that provide good service and value, and also support local community organizations and programs.
We provide the following services to the Ladysmith community:
- Custom framing using conservation methods
- 1000s of frames to choose from
- Block mounting and canvas transfers
- Stretching of works on canvas
- Needlework stretching and framing
- Shadow boxes and object boxes
- Glass replacement
- Fine art by local artists
Bayview is a supporter of over 20 local organizations and initiatives.
