Celebrating 22 years in business, Artworks! in Orleans is excited to introduce Memento, our new museum-like design studio, along with a wide range of services for individuals and organizations possessing collections, keepsakes and memorabilia. Let us help get those cherished items out of drawers, closets and attics...organized, preserved, and presentable!
As creative strategists, and trusted caretakers of cherished materials, we’ll use our state of the art facilities to create a multi-faceted program to refresh and preserve your memories and artifacts... one item at a time.
We combine traditional archival methods of building exhibits including shadow boxes, assemblage, and framing with elements of text, audio, photos and three dimensional items to produce a museum quality, multi-media presentation that can be shared and appreciated by as many (or few) people as you wish.
By digitally scanning or photographing items, we create a visual archive that can be used to make coffee table type books, greeting cards, websites, portfolios, catalogs, slideshows and other digital presentations.
So gather up whatever your interest might be...old photos, letters, children’s artwork, figurines, stamps, medals and coins, movie memorabilia, military items, political signs, banners, buttons, travel souvenirs, antique samplers, quilts & clothing, and other ephemera and let us create a lasting legacy for your items.
Our intimate gallery features the work of just three local artists, Heidi Gallo, Charles Szeglin, and James Owens. Their artwork is inspired by, and reflective of their appreciation of living on Cape Cod. Only original artwork is exhibited & although we have limited wall space we have a large inventory of each artist's work. Some pieces may be available as prints.
... becomes new."
