Sharon Reihmer started framing in 1967 at Kent Studios in the suburbs of Philadelphia. She majored in art at Penncrest High School, attended Hussian School of Art, then moved to Vermont in 1972.
The Framing Format opened in 1976 on Railroad Street in St. Johnsbury, and moved to its present location on Lafayette Street in 1981. The shop provides a relaxed atmosphere that encourages sharing and “story-telling” which often helps to inform the design choices of each custom framing project.
In addition, Sharon co-publishes the Green Mountain Trading Post, is a Fairbanks Museum Fellow, and is a board member of the LSC Foundation.
Alycia Moore is a full time student at Lyndon State College and is majoring in Visual Communications. Her classes in color theory and design have added to the skills she has to offer at the frame shop. She has also studied drawing, decorative arts, and book arts classes. She is especially interested in the art of book making and book design. Alycia began framing in 2010, and as a quick and thorough learner, has become knowledgeable in custom framing design and technique.
Joanne Adams comes to us, as her schedule allows, from the Fairbanks Museum, where she designs and installs exhibits and signage, and curates the Wild Flower exhibit. She studied Art at Kutztown University. We value her organizational skills, design opinions, and weather reports from “Eye on the Sky”.
