The Art Mart has announced that it will be closing its doors in May. This unique downtown art supply store prided itself on selling professional archival material. Artists would frequent the Art Mart because they sold high quality pigments and brushes, as well as a broad range of papers, inks and pastels – all the tools and tricks of the trade. One could go in and rap with the manager, Russ Whitten, who was always willing to share his expertise in color theory and critique. The Art Mart will be sorely missed for sure!
Back in the day… ”A lot of artists are very particular about the materials that they use. We sell a lot of framing supplies. We offer custom framing to artists, stock sculpture material, pastel, variety of papers good for pastel.” –Russ Whitten, shop manager
Hurry in to the store for some generous deals during these final days – we at the Heart of Biddeford wish the folks from the Art Mart the best of luck!
