A mini-holiday

                      by admin on August 22, 2021

                      It’s been a busy summer with all our fabulous customers coming back! So we are going to take a short break, visiting our daughter: we’ll be closed Friday and Saturday, September 3 and 4. (This also means there will be no Art on first Friday this month! Second Saturday is still on the 11th.)

                      Be sure to get your holiday weekend shopping in before that! A reminder that our hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10-4, and Tim is happy to meet customers outside that time-frame with an appointment. Thanks for your support, people!

                      Open for shoppers

                      by admin on June 12, 2021

                      Hi art-friends! As part of Stage 2 re-opening, we are now able to welcome up to 7 customers at a time, so come on over to see what has been happening since the shutdown. New supplies have continued to arrive, from specialty rulers to main-stay paints. Highlights include Unison pastel sets and easels, colouring books and drawing pads.

                      If you have been waiting to bring in framing or other projects, now is also the time, as we’ll be able to turn things around fairly quickly. Masks are still appreciated.

                      Also check out the new slate of classes on offer under the Classes tab.

                      Thanks, Rhonda

                      May 19, 2021

                      Durham is saying goodbye to a great artist and teacher, Rhonda Abrams, who is moving away. She taught dozens of students in Durham for the last thirteen-or-so years, first at The Colour Jar, and then in her own space, Durham Art School. In her approach to teaching, Rhonda was rare. She wouldn’t do her students’ […]

                      We’re still here!

                      January 13, 2021

                      As a family-run business, we are still able to go to work every day, as long as we stay healthy! So with the new provincial restrictions in mind, we are offering distanced curbside service, or shipping until things improve. Shipped orders over $100 will be sent free of charge (within Ontario). We want everyone to […]

                      Tracing Archaea

                      November 4, 2020

                      I have an art show! Yes, I’m not only a shopkeeper or bookbinder… I actually do have an art background, which has finally come to the fore after a few years’ hiatus. Tracing Archaea excavates recent scholarship in molecular biology to reveal an artistic dig-site. Using the geneological shorthand of lineage, my work details the […]

                      Quarantined with a fetus and a paintbrush

                      September 23, 2020

                      Growing a baby, so I’m told, is like renting out your insides as an apartment, and the renter can make a ruckus any time of day or night.  Completed during a pandemic and her own pregnancy, Portraits of the Motherland, is a boisterous collection of new paintings by Kait Benninger. The show comprises six landscapes of the region, […]
