Welcome to new member Encore Artistic Solutions. Encore came from a moment of inspiration and was founded with a goal to create a community that reduces the impact of discarded paint and transforms the waste stream into inspiring works of art. The company was launched out of Laguna Beach, California where the founding team members live, work, and create. As an authentic art community and environmentally conscious group of people, we had a thought... “A World Free of Discarded Paint”





Stan Clifford has announced that he has stepped down as CEO of DecoArt, after 36 years growing the manufacturer of craft, DIY, and fine art acrylic paints.

"I have sold the majority of my shares in the company to Morgenthaler Private Equity Partners (MPE) because of their focus on growth which has always been my vision for the company. I will remain on the board of directors and will remain an investor in the company, but I am retiring from the day-to-day business. Effective immediately, Jonathan Kane will replace me as CEO. Jonathan is a seasoned executive with over 30 years of experience in operating companies at the highest level of performance. His background in chemicals, coatings, operations, new product development, and the retail environment make him an ideal candidate to succeed me and take DecoArt to the next Level. With the exception of myself, all of the leadership and customer engagement teams will remain in place, and I anticipate that you will be able to conduct business as usual with DecoArt."

 

Ampersand Art Supply announces the launch of their new website. A new modern color palette & brand design complements a highly engaging website that drives a powerful branding experience for the user and brings the company’s mission to inspire creativity full circle. “Our website design takes an artist-first approach and is about providing inspiration, information, and sharing our brand story,” says Bridget Griffin, Director of Marketing.

A notable new feature includes an intuitive panel selection tool that assists artists in choosing the best panel for their artwork based on technique and media. Visitors to the site can learn more about the features of the surfaces, watch videos, follow along with tutorials, explore how other artists use the panel and locate a retailer to purchase. The fully responsive website with versatile navigation guides any user from any channel through the shopping journey.

Shellie Daly, Marketing and Promotions Manager adds, “The website is designed to lead artists to stores and also to assist those stores in positioning and promoting our brand to their customers.” The new website hosts a robust dealer portal that offers product training videos, a vast catalog of product and lifestyle images, videos, social media hashtags, and more. “We understand retail marketing teams often have limited resources, and we asked ourselves, what can we do to help? With this goal in mind, we’ve provided content to make it easier for retailers to market the Ampersand product line online or in-store. The digital assets now available elevate the panel shopping experience as consumer expectations and behaviors have evolved,” adds Daly.

“I am very proud of our new website as it connects us to artists around the world in new and engaging ways – we are so looking forward to our work with artists who use our surfaces as we continue to develop new content to keep the website fresh and engaging,” shared Elaine Salazar, Founder, and CEO.
