Hello Friends,

Welcome to Artisan’s website!

Our website is an extension and reflection of what Artisan is as a company. We began on Canyon Road in Santa Fe in 1975. The current four owners all began as retail clerks and  have worked together for over 20 years. We have two retail stores — Santa Fe and Albuquerque — that have employees who are mostly artists dedicated to their art and helping you with yours. Please visit our stores in Santa Fe or Albuquerque, call or click, and allow us an opportunity to earn your business. Our online store is competitively priced with other internet art material sites from much larger companies.

Ron’s Palette – January 2015

Gratitude for Creativity

Happy New Year! 2014 was a great year at Artisan. I am grateful that both stores had an increase in business and our Artist Materials’ Expo at Buffalo Thunder was a great success. I really appreciate your patronage to keep Brick and Mortar stores like ours alive while the internet takes down more and more retail stores. We will continue to offer our rewards program, free demos, helpful and knowledgeable staff of artists to assist you, competitive prices and a positive shopping experience to earn your business.

2015 is a completely fresh palette for all of us. Artisan is committed to continue to serve our community of artists. We have a new format to our newsletter to allow you to quickly find your areas of interest and a new complete web site will be coming out soon. Artisan is sponsoring two young budding artists with scholarships, hosting art educators nights in February at both stores and will be hosting the vendor floor at the upcoming International Association of Pastel Societies in Albuquerque this June.

Thank you for being a part of our world at Artisan. I personally hope this year is one of joy and continued creativity for all of you. What would this world be without creative people? Boring and colorless…

Yours in Creativity,

Budding Artist Update

Jonah Hoffman has been working hard!

One of our 2014 Budding Artists – Jonah Hoffman – has sent us some of his latest works, and we think they’re really great. Check them out here. We’ll have more news in the next newsletter. And we’re gearing up for our next Budding Artist Competition coming in April. So don’t forget to add that to your calendar!

Artisan Employee’s Art Gallery

We have such a creative group of employees and are very proud of them and their artwork. Check out the Artisan Employee’s Art Gallery homepage and let us know what you think.

Artist of the Month

Meet Andrea Broyles.

Andrea Broyles’ work has always been inspired by the figure.  It informs her choices and shades her compositions.  Her oeuvre consists of both painting and sculpture with a lot of cross pollination between the two mediums.

Songwriter Sunday

Sunday, January 4th, at the Santa Fe store

Spend an afternoon performing & listening to some cool music!
The first Sunday of every month is Songwriter Sunday here at Artisan, in the Artisan Performance Corner. If you’re a songwriter, come on down with your guitar and 1-3 songs (if you tickle the ivories, a keyboard is provided). The Performance Corner has a great sound system! Mikey likes it…!
