How's it hanging?
Welcome to “Framing Central,” a monthly look behind-the-scenes into Central Art’s Custom Framing department!
In this new regular monthly feature, we’ll be giving you a closer look at the inner workings of our frame building shop – showcasing the work of our talented team of professional framers, Alex, Jon and Dan – as well as answering your custom framing questions, tips on selecting the various components to house your art during the design process, industry highlights and more!
But first, let us introduce the expert team of individuals who are responsible for bringing your art full circle and ready to be proudly displayed!
Alex Fisher (framer)
Alex began his framing tenure at Central Art under the guidance and training of his aunt, Peggy Bulebar.
During his time here, Alex has amassed more than 5 years of experience and knowledge helping customers one-on-one to design the perfect compliment to the art that will hang in their homes, gallery shows and public spaces.
Holding his work to a very high standard, Alex brings a competitive edge to Central Art's reputation for excellence in custom framing.
Jonathan Alim (framer)
Jon has been a fixture at Central Art with over 18 years of framing experience, building all manner of projects, including trickier and oversize frames.
He received his BFA from Southern Oregon University in 2004, and is an avid printmaker when he's not joining corners and cutting mats.
Jon's meticulous attention to detail is a key ingredient in the success of Central Art's Custom Framing department, and his love of the work is evident in the end product.
Dan Ebert (owner/framer)
Prior to inheriting Central Art from his father George, Dan bought the next door frame shop, The Bevel Works, in October of 1987. Later the frame shop moved downstairs and adopted the Central Art name.
Among the many other hats he wears, Dan is a 27-year veteran of custom framing with a wealth of knowledge and experience to add to the great team that turns your art into a real showstopper!
