The Clinton Hill Blog reported recently that Grady’s Collective Market at 923 Fulton has lured a framing business, called Brownstone Framing, from New Jersey to its space in Clinton Hill. Brownstone Framing is now one of a very few providers of custom framing in the neighborhood.
Brownstone Framing is a husband and wife duo that have reportedly been “serving customers in New Jersey for almost five years at Newark Art Supply and Custom Framing.” Now that combination of services makes sense, and while we aren’t complaining, we were curious as to how this new marriage of entrepreneurial agents came about.
Ade Sedita, wife of the husband/wife super-duo along with Chris Sedita, tells the clintonhillblog that they had simply responded to an online advertisement and were impressed with a “warm and welcoming” reception. But this seemingly odd joining of forces may be more than just warm fuzzies and is in fact much more appropriate than initial impressions suggest. Ade describes a love of Clinton Hill and a desire to further arts and culture in the community.
In fact, Ade indicates to clintonhillblog that she is an award winning artist and will have work featured in The Global Africa Project, a “major international exhibition” upcoming at the Museum of Arts and Design.
Sounds like Clinton Hill got lucky when these two moved in to set up shop, and while we can’t presume to know what the future holds, we believe these two will make some significant contributions.
