framing in Northwest Arkansas. The Duck Club Gallery has been in Fayetteville since
1980 providing individuals, businesses, and institutions with custom picture framing
service second to none. The staff of DCG, with over 100 years of combined picture
framing experience, helps customers design the perfect framing compliment for
any art. They frame just about anything that doesn't move, such as uniform jerseys,
sporting equipment, collectable collages, weddings, children photos, business awards,
diplomas, and all kinds of memorabilia.
Helping others achieve their dreams and desires in life is what DCG is all about.
The first question when some one enters the gallery is "How can we help you?" Charlie
and Frances Sego opened the Duck Club Gallery 32 years ago with the idea of helping
folks create custom picture framing to fit the dcor of homes and offices throughout
Northwest Arkansas. Robin Garrett, Director of Framing Operations, started his framing
career in 1977 while earning a MFA degree from the University of Arkansas. Over the
years, many U of A students have earned their diploma while working part-time at the
gallery helping customers and helping themselves at the same time.
Offering the highest quality and added value is the best way to help their customers and
keep them returning as their need dictates. While we may be living in a "throw away"
society, there is nothing "throw away" about the quality offered at the Duck Club
Gallery. Starting with UV proteced glazing and using only acid free or rag mat boards
and backing, assurance is given to individuals with original and/or rare art that their
investment is safe and secure at DCG.
It all starts at the design tables where customers can get a feel how their art will look
matted and framed in a variety of colors and styles. This is where many customers rely
on the gallery staff to help with guidance in selection of the many framing options. "Do I
need to dry mount or not? Are mats required? How many mats do I need? Do the dark
color mats go on top or bottom? What size matting goes with my art? Do I want wood
or metal frames? Does gold or wood tone go best with my art and dcor? How will my
art look with Museum Glass?" Remember, the Duck Club Gallery is all about helping
