New Location, New Beginnings

New Owners of French Broad Imaging
We have always been fans and customers of French Broad Imaging but never did we imaging that one day, we would have the the opportunity to be a part of this well loved business!
We have brought French Broad Imaging into our art home in West Asheville. You can find FBI now INSIDE Texture Gallery & Art Bar. We offer the same high quality and service that Tony & Patrick have for years. We are not here to “fill shoes” but to move forward and bring our own take on things while maintaining the integrity of the entity we are taking over.

In fact, Patrick is still on hand for special projects as needed. And Jim Donohoo is on hand to help out with canvas stretching and slide scanning. Plus, he will be taking on the role of photo editing instructor, teaching classes here in our classroom.

Since FBI is now under our roof, we are also able to offer all of our clients more services, such as an in-house sales area to bring your clients for meetings (instead of coffee shops). AND we have been doing custom picture framing for years and now are pleased to be able to offer everything under one roof to you!

Many of our fellow photogs in the Asheville community know us, since we have been around town since 1998. But for those of you who do not now us, this is a quick run down. If you want to know more about us, come in and have a chat, we are friendly folks. We are a solid husband and wife team who work very well together in every aspect of life and work.
Manuel is an internationally known letter artist and teacher, calligraphy is his main focus. He is also a professional picture framer for over 14 years. He often helps shoot at events as second shooter and really knows his stuff. Patrice is more than likely the face you will see when you come into the gallery. She started with her first camera in 1989 and continues to love what she does. Often traveling for photography work she covers the entire east coast from upstate NY to New Orleans working with a wide variety of people at events of all types and often works with celebrities during these trips. She also teaches mixed media art at the Art Bar.
As a team who as been married since 2000, we work very well together in all aspects and love what we do. One of the many things we love to do is attend Comic-Cons and have fun! (see photo above), cooking with friends and exploring new places (all with cameras in hand!)

We are a One-Stop-Shop!
You can find us at 1516 Patton Ave Asheville, NC.
We have regular hours from Tue-Sat from 10:30am-6pm, but on occasion, we have to leave to meet our own photography clients on site.
It’s ok to call ahead to make sure we are here.
