Art is more than visual. It is a personal expression, a journey into the creative soul, a stroll into the eclectic mind…

Owner Johanna Tydings has over 30 years of experience in the custom framing and art business.  21st Street Art Gallery has been serving Virginia Beach locals and the Hampton Roads area since 1992. They have an excellent selection of art, ranging from original oils, watercolors, and photography to sculpture, pottery, and hand-crafted jewelry.  They carry work by highly sought-after artists from local, regional, and national levels.

Unique quality framing is a must for your favorite works of art.  We are experts at helping you decide how best to enhance,  display, and protect your valuables against the ravages of  time.  Onsite consultation is available for both your residential and commercial needs. We also offer delivery and installation services.

Minor restoration work is done on the 21st Street Art Gallery premises. We can handle your most precious possessions from Christening gowns, cross-stitches and sports jerseys to diplomas, shadow boxes and of course your fine art pieces that require conservation museum-grade material.

Our goal is to provide you with the best customer service while also providing you with the absolute best in quality framing.  Our staff is committed to offering impeccable work, the highest standards, and a 100% satisfaction and workmanship guarantee.
