About Us

Lizzard’s 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, art works, 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 also offers consultation and installation services to individuals or corporations for any size project.

Lizzard’s Art Gallery & Framing is owned by Jeffrey Schmidt. Born in Nicollet, Minnesota, Schmidt received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1994 from UMD. Schmidt began working at the Art Dock in Canal Park. He then became a manager at Lizzard’s former location at 38 E. Superior St.

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. Lizzard’s is a consignment art gallery that features a very eclectic mix of originals by local artists. Lizzard’s also offers gallery-quality custom framing.
