Academy Art & Frame Company started its journey in 1997 as The Big Picture specializing in custom framing and posters. In 2005, Kim Costello came on as a framer and sales associate and in 2007 bought the shop with her business partner, Jon Ewell. Being a lover of the arts and a feather artist herself, Kim decided that she wanted to showcase local artists rather than posters. The business has grown to include approximately 200 artists, a Monthly Exhibit with 3rd Friday Reception, Classes and Events, and much more.
Throughout the years, there have been many talented artists and framers who have passed through the doors, bringing new creative avenues to the business. Kim started with a team of 2-3 framers plus herself and we are now at our near largest staff ever of 8 including Kim. Please check out Our Staff page to learn about every member of our amazing staff. Every team member is an artist in varying media and bring different amazing skills to our highly evolving business. We are lucky to have such an amazing, caring and talented team that strives to bring our customers the best possible quality of framing knowledge, skill and design.
