Online Gallery

“Peach Petals”, watercolor on Aquabord by Linda Aman




We have been showcasing work from our Online Gallery here on the blog now for several weeks.  Our online gallery is made up of artists who have sent in their work on Ampersand Products for us to “approve” and include in the best of Ampersand Artists.  We are always taking new submissions, but only update the gallery a few times a year.  Please know that if you submit your work to our gallery, we will share your work and website with our blog audience and all of our social media networks, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.  When you send it in, please mention the medium, the panel type, the size and your website.  If you are interested in submitting to our gallery, please email gallery@ampersandart.com

Don’t forget that the fall sale is still going on.  Claybord, Hardbord, Gessobord and Encausticbord + ALL of the Artist Panels are on sale from 20-50% off at select dealers.  You can find a participating dealer near you on our Dealer Locator web page.

Fall Sale happening now: Claybord, Gessobord, Encausticbord and Artist Panel

The Fall Sale is on, so what does this mean for you?  And how can you get in on the action?

 

Well, a few times a year, Ampersand has a sale on a few of the products, which means that the Ampersand retailers can sell them 20%-50% off to you, the artist.  Not all the products go on sale each time, so you have to watch carefully for when your favorite panels are in the sales.  During each sale, the website, the blog and our social media outlets mention the products and places where you can purchase them easily.  

This September, Claybord™, Gessobord, Hardbord Encausticbord and the Artist Panel are all on sale.  For a quick reminder on all the pros of each panel, check the list below and notice the new products:  Artist Panel Primed Smooth and Artist Panel Unprimed Basswood as well as 1.5″ profiles for Claybord and Gessobord.
