City Arts In Columbia SC

This is my Yelp review on the City Art Gallery 1224 Lincoln St. Columbia, SC and art supply store.




City Art is by far the most all service art gallery in the capital city of Columbia, SC. They do it all and they have it all. For starters, I have been a customer of this business for well over 25 years. Back when I first went to their store on Broad River Rd. called Dutch Door. It was a tiny little store and I am happy to say this business grew from humble beginnings to the immense presence in downtown Columbia SC by having high quality art supplies and great customer service. When they moved downtown they quickly became the go to for art supplies.
They have monthly art shows and assembled a group of artists and art collections for sale, above and beyond all the other places in town put together. They also offer custom framing and special orders. Anything any art student from USC or any of the 30 colleges and even more high school students could possibly need they have it. Any type of painting, printing, drawing you need or want to do, you can get your supply there. They even have rarely used items such as silverpoint, #3 mechanical pencils, ground pigments and the best supply of easels I have ever personally seen!
The building is huge and the main floor gallery can be rented for weddings and events. Who knows maybe I will get married there someday. (If ever, lol!) The classes I have taken with them, starting way back at Dutch Door for Matting and to this day Oil Painting portraits with Stephen Whetstone and a 2 day oil painting portrait workshop next month with Michael DelPriore and others in between, have all been great learning experiences.
Not only that, but I can call up and say I am going to need a yard of canvas and I will be over to pick it up and it will be ready. Randy Hanna (one of the principles) can point you to exactly what you need and being in business so long, he knows what all the teachers' prefer the students to use. Best gallery and best art supply, by far!!!

If they had 10 stars this place would get that!
