Erick Visits Vegas for the Art and Frame Expo

Posted on December 15, 2016 by Erick Rios

We have some exciting news at Frames and Stretchers. Erick is headed to Las Vegas to join an epic Framing Gambling Ring. That was a joke of course. Erick was invited to teach an Advanced Workshop at the West Coast Art & Framing Expo called "Social Media and Digital Storytelling". Earlier this year, he was named "Social Media Savvy" by Larson-Juhl; one of the largest molding producers in the United States, and as a result they asked him to teach their sponsored class at WCAF 2017. Larson-Juhl has over 100 years of experience manufacturing and distributing innovative custom frames.
