Galleria Art & Framing was established in 2006 by owner-designer Steve Shafer, in Durham, North Carolina. With a nearly 30 years' experience in graphic art and design, the changing business climate in the field created an opportunity to make a lateral move to work more intensively with creative art. A year later Steve and his wife Elizabeth, moved to Fearrington Village in Pittsboro, NC.
During the next decade Steve has earned the CPF (Certified Picture Framer) designation by the Professional Picture Framers Association (PPFA). Since then he has also participated in several Framing Competitions to challenge his design abilities and learn from his peers. Below are images with artists, customers and behind the scenes.
