Welcome…


The Framer’s Workshop & Fine Art Gallery is owned and operated by Claude G. Breton.

Since its inception in 1978, Claude has covered the entire spectrum of the industry. Manufacturing picture frames marked the beginning of a long term career that eventually grew into an ensemble of custom picture framing and fine Art. An artist himself, Claude has a better understanding about framing. Letting the artwork dictate the proper format is always key. Giclée printing became a reality in 2007 along with a complete photo studio. His long term relationship with other artists has always aspired his devotion and contribution to the industry. In simple terms, the translation of art is a still moment in life that renders itself part of history for everyone to enjoy.
