GK GETTING TO KNOW

The Artof Standing Out A massive source of artwork, custom frames, on-site art classes and home décor, Ziegler Art & Frame has been a fixture of the Tulsa and Kendall-Whittier landscape for nearly 40 years.

TRENT MORROW At the corner of Admiral Place and Lewis Avenue, just north of the iconic Circle Cinema, you’ll find another icon of Tulsa’s retail history — a massive source of artwork, custom frames, on-site art classes, home decor and more.

He and his father, Alan Morrow, currently run the store. Trent serves as director of marketing and his father is the president. “We were just a small picture frame shop.” At the time Zeigler first opened, the neighborhood was awash in cheap real estate, so Trent’s grandfather bought a property here, a property there. Two generations later, Ziegler has expanded by leaps and bounds, offering its unique custom framing among many other artistic items. And it’s also expanded literally in space — occupying about six buildings and 25,000 square feet or so. “My grandfather just built all of these buildings together into one mega-complex kind of art and frame superstore,” says Trent.
