YUPO demo by artist Sandy Sandy at Dick Blick


For all you Manhattanites, join us this Thursday, August 22nd from 2-4pm at the NEW Dick Blick Store in Chelsea to experience first-hand why YUPO synthetic paper has become the hottest surface to paint on. 

Artist Sandy Sandy takes you through some of her tips, tricks and techniques used to create her watercolor masterpieces.

Since 1996, Sandy has been a professional fine artist and up to January of 2009, has devoted her career to painting full time. A strong connection with animals and nature has been evident over the past years and through thousands of paintings. Her philosophy of spirit, who she is, and who she strives to become, is woven into her work. Having studied watercolor with many nationally known watercolor masters including those from the E.A.Whitney, Brandywine and New Hope Schools has given Sandy roots that are strong in the American Art Tradition.

We’ll also be raffling off a bunch of Yupo paper. We all look forward to seeing you on Thursday.

Utrecht's Grand Re-Opening of Chelsea Store in NYC


The grand re-opening of the latest Utrecht store in Manhattan (Chelsea on 23rd street between 7th and 8th Ave) occurred over the weekend and we were on site to check things out.  The redesign is truly beautiful.  Everything is laid out well and is easy to find.

The paper pad section of the store takes up an entire aisle, while the full sheeted papers are cleanly stowed away in flat files that take up an entire wall.  Pretty impressive.
