Art Gallery & Framing Services in Duluth, MN

Lizzards was founded in Downtown Duluth, Minnesota in 1991, not far from its new location at 11 West Superior Street, in the historic Wirth building. Lizzard’s frame shop can frame nearly anything, in nearly any size, and mount it with materials that range from commercial-quality to museum-quality. This includes your posters, photographs, artworks, precious documents, and everything in between. We feature an enormous array of framing stock and glass stock from which you can choose to frame your order.

Lizzard’s Art Gallery & Framing is owned by Jeffrey Schmidt.
Jeff became a manager at Lizzard’s former location at 38 E. Superior Street in January 1999.

In 2003, he purchased the gallery with a partner, and by 2006 he became the sole owner. That same year, Schmidt relocated the gallery to its new location in the historic Wirth Building. Lizzards is a consignment art gallery that features a very eclectic mix of originals by local artists. Lizzard’s also offers gallery-quality custom framing.

Events at Lizzard’s are posted on Facebook and Instagram. “Like” us and check it out! Schmidt usually holds five events per year from April to December. He also often features performance artists at his openings. Stop in soon and say “Hi” to Jeff.

Friendly staff. Said hi and introduced themselves. Had small talk with my boyfriend, then left us alone as we slowly walked through the store exploring their many artists, but being close by and very responsive when asking questions and mentioning art or artists we liked. They have pottery, statues, jewelry, paintings, etc.

I've never gotten a bad frame. No matter what I bring in, and no matter what condition it is in, it looks like a million bucks when I get it back. The collection of artwork is eclectic and amazing. There is something for everyone. And the staff. The staff is top notch. I just recently took a look at the upper level and that was a full sensory overload of great pieces. Truly one of the best downtown businesses to exist today.

I have debilitating social anxiety (and ADHD). I walked into this store yesterday for a grad school diploma and immediately felt comfortable. I was never pushed into a direction I didn't want to go and we even shared a couple laughs. -Lifelong customer

A phenomenal place and Jeff is truly a gifted master and artist when it comes to framing! I have brought to him pieces of art as well as degrees and diplomas and has made the most amazing job at providing the perfect frames for them!

One of my favorite galleries in duluth, I make it a point to come in every time I'm in town. Jeff is a wonderful person both to talk to and to do business with. I always look forward to my stop into the shop.

I have had two maps framed here, that turned out awesome! They had great options to make the maps look great. I need to go back and look at more of their art.
