About E. Greene Gallery
Diane and Ed Greene entered the world of art and custom picture framing in the summer of 1970 when they began to sell their own uniquely painted, framed pieces, every weekend, at the Open Gallery in Westwood, Los Angeles.
With Diane coming from an arts background, and Ed doing custom woodworking, it was a natural fit and a successful enterprise from the start.
Upon returning home to the New York City area, they continued to make and sell hand crafted framed artwork, as well as small pieces of furniture, at local art and craft shows. In 1972, they opened the E.Greene Gallery in North Bergen, New Jersey where they sold locally made art and crafts, and doing custom picture framing.
Always with an emphasis on craftsmanship, Diane and Ed provided their customers the finest in commercially produced mouldings as well as designing and finishing their own exclusive line of frames.
By 1990, E.Greene Gallery had two locations, one in the newly flourishing area of Hoboken, New Jersey, and the other on Bleecker Steet in New York City’s Greenwich Village.
Interest in history, art and printing led Diane and Ed to incorporate original antique prints and lithographs, from botanical to natural history, into their business plan, and are now an integral part of their gallery.
In 1998, having had enough of New York winters, they sent their three cats on ahead and drove across country with Alice, their beautiful German Shepherd dog.
E.Greene Gallery opened on Cedros Avenue in Solana Beach in August of 1998.
The building in which the business was located was sold four years later, and they moved into the train car building on Coast Highway in Solana Beach. That space proved too small for their growing, hand-finished frame production business, they found space on 264 N. El Camino Real in Encinitas, adjacent to Vons on Mountain Vista , where they remain today.
