Alex Preston grew up in a retail art supply store in Louisville, Kentucky.  Paints and supplies are in his blood, as his family has been in the art materials business since World War 2.  Alex has experience with a wide range of mediums, including clay, airbrush, markers, paints, screen printing, and many others.  His formal training in chemistry meshes extremely well with his interest in both dyes and pigments, and Alex’s interest in teaching is closely related to his extensive art retail experience.  His goal is “finding the right tool, for the right person, for the right job”

 


Eggplant!

Our new custom color for the year is here! Only $8.95 per tube!

All proceeds from sales of Eggplant benefit the Ivy Tech Art For Kids Youth Scholarship Fund.

Manufactured for us by Gamblin Artist Oil Colors, Eggplant is a unique warm violet artist grade oil color. Eggplant mixes well with other oil colors, as well as oil-based printmaking inks, to create a wide range of beautiful, subtle colors.

To celebrate our custom color, and to express our appreciation for our customers, we had our one-night Eggplant art show and party this year on Friday, April 11.  Over seventy five works of art, all made with at least some Eggplant paint, were exhibited all around the store. Delicious gourmet food prepared by Pygmalion's owner John Wilson, and all the wonderful works of art, made it a very nice event.
