Thank you for Visiting Us!

"Around Clear Lake" - a book about the history of the area told in pictures and captions - signed copies are at the Seaside Gallery or send a request by e-mail.   

In 1989 we opened our first store on 2nd Street in Seabrook, Texas and then expanded into our current location at 204 Kirby, 1 block off NASA Parkway. Our selections include the latest in designer frame styles, UV protection glass and archival matting. We provide professional guidance in color and style selections and explain the framing methods available that preserve and protect what is being framed.

When we think we have framed almost everything in our 20 + years custom framing, a customer brings us another challenge. We are not shy and will seriously consider framing almost anything. See photos of some unusual projects on our Facebook page. 

Custom Prints from a Digital File, art, photo, negative or slide

Owner and artist Ruth Burke offers her printing expertise with our in-house 44" wide Canon Pigment Ink printer.  She began making her own prints from her photography in 2000 when she purchased her first pigment ink printer.  The outstnding quality of the fade reisitant pigment inks coupled with fine ink droplets that capture detail are what Ruth prefers when making her"giclee" fine art prints.  She offers to make prints for her customers from a digital file that is provided or she can make a file with our high resolution scanners from your original artwork, photo, negative or slide.  Archival papers and canvas designed for pigment inks are provided to select for printing.

As the artist, I enjoy the "art of seeing" while creating etchings from life and placing them onto film. I refer to the image on film as my "photographic etching", similar to a printing plate that is used to make a print. I use the giclee method to produce a fine art quality print on luster paper, rag paper or canvas.

From this Web site you will learn details about photography and my quest for a compelling image from the personal comments that accompany each image. Visit unique places around the world and take notice of the small details that I present in my photographs. Feel the texture of life in each image and smell the sweet scent of color as it guides your eye through the piece. When viewing an image, think about how the photograph makes you feel and the experience of viewing it daily as a print on your wall.

You can purchase a photograph on this Web site printed on three different types of surfaces. Each is a hand-crafted fine art print made the giclee method using the highest standards for maximum archival stability and beauty. The group of images shown below illustrate the details of the different print options.

We invite you to browse the different sections and think about creating a grouping of images with a similar theme for your walls. At our store, Seaside Gallery, we can also assist you with custom framing your print.

We are continually adding to this Web site from Ruth´s stock photography files, including many historic and current stock photos of the Texas Gulf Coast, Kemah Boardwalk, Texas landmarks, waterfowl and nature of Texas.

Enjoy browsing new images and reading about each image and our unique printing process for creating a beautiful print that lasts lifetimes!
