CUYAHOGA FALLS — Ron Beahn’s Custom Framing helps customers showcase prized possessions.

The 30-year-old business, owned by Ron Beahn and located at 1818 Portage Trail, offers framing for photographs, fine art, reproductions, objets d’art (works of art), needlepoint and cross-stitch work, diplomas, awards and other keepsakes.

According to his biography, Beahn is an award-winning traditional watercolor painter, former art curator for Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and the director of the Boston Mills Artfest, as well as the Canton National Art Show held at the Canton Museum of Art. He has served as board chair of the Whiskey Painters of America, has produced art shows in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and received the 2007 Art Administrator of the Year award from the Ohio Designer Craft Council.

In addition, he has served as an art consultant for Akron Children’s Hospital, overseeing the purchase of artwork from children in kindergarten through 12th grades to be placed in the hospital.

Beahn, a resident of Green, was commissioned to paint a picture of the Lichtenwalter Schoolhouse in Boettler Park for the City of Green’s 20th anniversary, which now hangs in the City of Green Administration Building.

His 36-year background in the arts has given Beahn a unique perspective in framing, he said. He added he does not believe in overselling framing, which can be costly for a customer.

“My artistic experience is a valuable asset,” he said. “I look at the art to see what will best complement it. I like to keep the art as the main focal point, not the framing.”

Beahn stated another important aspect of his business is customer service.

“I offer one-on-one service. I have a lot of experience and can address any framing need, and I am competitively priced,” he said. “I do everything all the big box stores don’t do. I am the owner of this business, and I guarantee my work.”

Beahn stated there are several factors, including the mats, the type of transparent covering to use and the selection of the frame to consider in framing items. He added the selection of these items depends on the object to be framed and on personal tastes, but a professional can help to make sure the item to be displayed is set off perfectly.

Beahn said if he cannot frame something a customer has brought in, he will gladly direct the person to someone who may be able to help.

Ron Beahn’s Custom Framing also has a gallery of Beahn’s work available for purchase.

The store is open Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
