This is the mini-mall where our studio lives. We have been here for 20+ years. We love our landlord, David Hall (Hall & Moskow), and we are blessed with great neighbors. But to call The Tannery Marketplace a 'mini-mall' is really a great injustice. It is (mostly) an old tannery that has been wonderfully and thoughtfully converted into a complex of five buildings, each with its own flavor and character. Visit the shops and services on line or, even better, in person!
When we shop on-line for art supplies we like Cheap Joe's. They usually have what we want, at fair prices. Their service has also been great. If you visit the site, check out the other, art-related stuff going on.
We also like Art Supply Warehouse. Here you will find thousands of art supplies and picture frames at some of the lowest prices anywhere! Theirinventory includes art supplies from the most respected names in the industry: Creative Mark, LUKAS, Matisse Derivan, Chroma, Sennelier, Silverbrush, Liquitex, Derwent, Da Vinci, Golden, Old Holland, Winsor & Newton, and many more!
When we shop locally because we need it fast and need to know its probably going to be in stock, we drive to Beverly. Art Supplies Wholesale is packed with just about anything you might need for your art project. They are a bit hard to find. When you find the little mini-mall, you have to drive down and in back of the building. They have a map in their 'About Us' section.
A good source for on-line framing is Graphic Dimensions, known online as pictureframes.com. They carry many frame styles that you can order either pre-made or 'precut', that you assemble yourself. You can also order corner samples of your favorite styles to try on your pictures.
