Central Art Supply Carries on a Legacy for our Art Community

Central Art Supply

In 1976 George & Winnie Ebert brought their successful art materials business from Coos Bay, OR to Medford – Ebert Arts Center & Framing. In 1981 they moved to 6th & Central Ave known now as Central Art Supply. Their vision and belief in the artistic pulse of Southern Oregon has benefitted our region for the past 41years.

George passed away September 20 after a battle with cancer. He will be sorely missed by his family and by many in the community. He loved working with people and had such a pleasant disposition. Up until the last month of his life, he would often stop by Central Art to hang out, help, visit with customers – whatever he wanted to do. We at Central Art are proud to carry on his legacy here in the
