What we do- An Inauspicious Beginning

To understand what we do at Nelson Fine Art, I'll give you the background. First of all, Nelson Fine Art began as Lady Bug Gallery. I was playing golf in the early 90's with Ted Mars (Morris?)who once owned Regal Art and Framing which became Essyx Gallery. He told me he went into the framing business with a woman in 1970 or 71. Within a year he realized she was using company money to buy office equipment and taking it home. So he promptly fired her. In 1972, she used that equipment to open a custom picture framing business on East Main Street in Johnson City, TN and named it Lady Bug Gallery.
