Store Reopening

Posted by Mark Carder on

I am happy to inform you that we have found a new home for Geneva Fine Art Supplies that is twice the size of our previous headquarters. We started moving in last week and we are now setting up to make products.

We hope to open up for sales on October 1, 2021, with the Essential Palette oil colors, Brush Dip, and Color Checkers available first.  Easels, studio furniture and additional colors will be available shortly thereafter. Thank you for your understanding while we restock all of our products!

The last bit of news is that we have invited Ratha Grimes to join us as our new President. Ratha has over 15 years of experience leading software projects at major tech companies, along with extensive knowledge and a deep understanding about paint films and artists' pigments. She will take the lead on growing the business which will free me up to focus on product development and making YouTube videos. I am very excited about the company's future!

It’s been a long road since the July 8 fire. Thank you all so very much for your well wishes and your patience.

Fire at Geneva Headquarters

Posted by Mark Carder on

As you may know, on Thursday last week we were stunned to wake up to news of a fire at our headquarters. Fortunately, no one was hurt and the fire was contained before it spread to other units in the building. Investigators have told us the fire was very likely electrical in origin, and the exact cause is still being determined. Meanwhile, we have been working through the insurance process and reaching out to customers whose orders have been affected.

We have been overwhelmed with the messages of sympathy and support from customers who have seen the banner on our site. Thank you so much to all who have sent encouraging words!

We are determined to come back stronger than ever from this experience. However, it will take some time. Much of our material and tools have been damaged, and will take time to replace. Also, our current space is unusable, and we have decided to move into a new larger facility. We'll keep you updated on our progress through the email list -- please sign up below.

Thanks for your interest in Geneva products. We have big plans for the future and can't wait to get back on our feet as soon as we possibly can!
