How Green is Golden?

I need to share right at the beginning, that almost all of our acrylic components are made of compounds derived currently from non-renewable resources from either the oil or gas industry.  That is a given.  So to speak of ‘green’, for some might seem a bit contrived.  But as I’ve shared with colleagues here, as we determine our direction for […]

Yes it is true… Golden Artist Colors has purchased Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors and is now producing these fine products.  It’s been just three days since the Williamsburg folks have moved over here and started making oil paint in the Golden Custom Lab.  We’ve moved over all the equipment, pigments, and the rest of the […]

Just this past April, Golden Artist Colors employees became the majority owners of this Company.  It was a day that Barbara and I have been working towards ever since considering what an opportunity for all of us an employee owned company would mean back in 1999.  I must admit that it was both exhilarating for […]

We received some recent correspondence from a customer very concerned over our product warning information.  The customer suggested that they wouldn’t have chosen our products and or certain colors of ours because they could have purchased the same colors in another brand labeled as non-toxic.  The fact is, our products are no more dangerous than […]

In a recent response from a customer, they made a comment suggesting that our products were coming from China.  I don’t know where they got that idea, but it gave me pause to think that I have not been as diligent as I could be in informing, especially new customers to Golden Artist Colors, that all our […]

Golden Artist Colors has just moved to a 4 day work week for the factory. Although this began as a request to deal with the incredible run up in gas prices, it has actually created more opportunities for a better life/work balance.. The shop is still open 5 days a week, but each department has […]

It has been truly a wonderful summer here at Golden’s.  We’ve been busy with the launch of two incredibly creative and exciting product lines; our Digital Mixed Media Grounds and Top Coats and our new OPEN Acrylics.  What I’ve neglected to share is also some very exciting news from the Sam and Adele Golden Foundation […]

Some Transparency About OPEN

Post by Mark Golden

I’ve always thought that it was critical for our company, our brand, our customers to make sure we provided up to date, accurate information on product or product issues. It is always possible that we might miss the target, but our commitment here, from all our staff, is to never disappoint because we’ve misrepresented our […]

Open questions

It is wonderfully energizing here the level of response we’ve received so far for the OPEN Acrylic.  A number of great questions and reports from the arts community.  I thought I’d take a few of these on here. “GOLDEN OPEN Acrylic dries matte…”  “GOLDEN OPEN Acrylic dries glossy…” – both correct.  I’m sure folks familiar […]
