Creative Framing & The Art Box is a local discount art supply, custom framing shop, and gallery in Charlottesville, Crozet and Lynchburg, Virginia.

Our Discount Art Supplies provide a value to our local art community, as we offer 10% off ALL art supplies, every day. We pride ourselves on providing a broad selection of art supplies, including some hard-to-find materials—such as encaustics, a diverse selection of artist grade paints & a huge selection of art papers.

Creative Framing & The Art Box is a great place to shop with friends. Our collection of whimsical lifestyle offerings, including inspired gifts for children, letterpress cards, calligraphy tools, & trendy gift wraps, will inspire you to share the beauty of your life.
We welcome you to come by the shop. Browse for inspiration. Ask a hard question. We are the keepers of art supply & framing knowledge and love to share!

Owned and operated by Anne Novak since 1980. Creative Framing has provided top-quality framing and inspired designs to the Charlottesville area for over 45 years.
We began carrying art supplies in Charlottesville in 1997. In 2000, we physically expanded to include the adjoining shop and named our art supply division The Art Box.
In 2003, we opened a second Art Box location in Lynchburg, Virginia. There, we sell art supplies and have an art center with 9 studios occupied by 15 artists. Two classrooms provide art instruction for regional art-lovers.

In October 2012, we opened a third location in Crozet, Virginia. The Crozet shop sells art supplies, provides picture framing, and offers classes, as well as a gallery space with Second Saturday Openings.
