Artisan will be celebrating its 40th anniversary selling artist materials in Santa Fe with a customer appreciation party 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., July 18.
The party will take place in the parking lot of the store at 2601 Cerrillos Road. Prior to the party, there will be 40 days of appreciation. Customers will receive a free raffle ticket for every $40 spent to be entered to win some amazing prizes.
There will be demonstrations from Montana Spray Paint as well as opportunities to try their product, encaustic demonstrations from the Encaustic Institute, the famous magnetic word truck from Your True Nature, raffle drawing with more than $7,200 in art materials, acrylic paint throwing in The Action Chamber, free barbeque, Axle Contemporary Mobile Gallery, and live music by The Sean Healen Band.
The store also will offer a discount on art materials. This event is Artisan’s way of saying thank you to New Mexico for supporting the store since 1975 when the store was on Canyon Road, serving customers like Georgia O’Keeffe and RC Gorman. Visit www.artisan-santafe.com/40th for more information.
