This Saturday (9/13), we’ll be hosting an amazing show of large works by Friedel Dzubas. The paintings, all completed in Magna acrylics in the 70’s and 80’s, are as vibrant as when they were produced. These early acrylics developed by Sam and Leonard truly represent the beginning of this amazing era of painting. [...]

The launch of our new watercolor, QoR, has made it quite exciting back here at Golden Artist Colors. It would not have been very interesting to make another ‘me-to’ watercolor. There are enough traditional professional quality watercolors out there to meet almost every artist’s needs. With QoR we have made a product [...]

I realize the world of the internet is about constant change. What was new last month is old this month. So to share that we’ve been working on these changes for close to 4 years probably sounds ridiculous. But, while we were supporting the old site, we were already making new applications [...]

Just back from Buffalo
I’ve not visited Buffalo for some time now and I’m a bit embarrassed that I wasn’t at all aware of all the changes taking place in that city. I know the Albright Knox and the Burchfield Museum are truly gems in the city, but I hadn’t taken stock this new Buffalo. [...]

I had the wonderful opportunity to be able to spend some time with Henry and Judd Meininger of Meininger’s of Denver fame (Colorado Springs & Boulder). I was sharing with this father and son team them that I was writing a blog about supporting your local art store. I thought I’d be able to [...]

Now that spring has finally arrived here in Upstate NY, we are excited to have our second group of artists joining us next to the Golden Factory. It is so exciting to have this creative energy right next door.
I’ve just finished making a homemade version of a fume collector for our Residents working with solvents. [...]

Supporting your art supply dealer

Post by Mark Golden

Artists will often share how easy it is to order their art materials from Amazon online, or how much better the pricing is versus their local art supply retailer. I realize that each of these things can be valid reasons for choosing one vendor over another. “After all, it doesn’t really matter who [...]

We are excited about the opening of our first Gallery show of the Artist Residents from 2012… And absolutely delighted that so many of the artists have traveled here for the opening. The show looks beautiful and so brilliantly shares the diversity of talent that joined the Golden Foundation for its inaugural year [...]
