In 2008, Studio Art Supplies moved from Parnell, where we’d been well over 30 years, to Grey Lynn.
While the neighbourhood has always been arty, the past 10 years have seen most of Auckland’s dealer galleries move in just up the road - a dozen within a few minutes’ walk, and many more not-for-profit spaces! We’re proud to be in the middle of such a culturally rich area and seeing that more people than ever are being creative, in modest ways and grand.
Studio Art Supplies has assisted beginners and professionals with expert advice since 1974. Our store manager, Michael Mitchell, is proud of the SAS Team - between us there is no material problem too difficult or strange that we can’t tackle. We have the time and the expertise to work with artists, illustrators and all creative people on any project no matter how large or small.
The large store is jam-packed with a huge variety of art materials including extensive brush, paint and paper sections, as well as our amazing Custom Stretched Canvas department.
Dean Tercel is our chief canvas craftsman, a perfectionist who has turned out more than 25,000 tailor-made canvases, from the tiny to the epic - each one special. We source cotton and linen direct from Europe and US, and stock a wide range of specially designed, locally made stretcher bars.
Our staff are actively involved in the arts community, through exhibitions, teaching and making sure you’re looked after in store. Evan Woodruffe, Dean Tercel, Wendelien Bakker, and Patrick Lundberg work with Michael to make Studio Art Supplies a creative and engaging place that welcomes all levels of creative endeavour.
