For the past 26 years, our family-owned business has dutifully framed everything from toddler crafts to inherited masterworks.

Owner Dick Nelson started out as a framing hobbyist in the ‘80s. When work kept uprooting him from family and community, he decided to drop anchor in Johnson City. He purchased Nelson Fine Art Center as a way of giving back to his Southern Appalachia community.

You’ll find more than just frames at Nelson’s. Visit our gallery and lose yourself among the local paintings and sculptures.

Nelson Fine Arts Center is a sweet local gallery that does a great job representing so many different facets of what artists produce. Aleta Chandler

Dick, the shadow box that you, Migs, and Stacey designed to honor Boomer is as stunning as its subject. Thank you for your beautiful work and characteristic attention to detail. I have a new heirloom!
