Dear Friends,  

If you follow us on Facebook, this information has Changed.

We hope you are all healthy and finding ways to stay informed without being overwhelmed.

We temporarily closed on March 18 and the most recent Stay-at-Home orders will keep us closed until April 11, 2020.   Or April 17, 2020.   Or some other day altogether.  

We can't wait to open again - we miss you and the positive energy you bring!  Whether it's your excitement on finding just the right brush or marker or the pleasure of showing a picture of what you created after your last visit.   

So in the meantime - 

We will be participating in the 40 West Arts District Virtual Art Walk on April 3, 2020.   you can find more information at 40WestArts.org.  

And, we encourage you to be creative.

Red Herring Art & Supply and the Gallery of Everything

Additional Information

Red Herring Art & Supply won't be here if it weren't for our friends.  

Like Bill and Kevin - who introduced us to Judy. 

Judy, Lauri, and Toni owned the Gallery of Everything and were moving into a new space.  They agreed to give us about 100 square feet in the back corner to sell Rublev Artist Oil paint, Asian Brushes and a few other art supplies.    As Red Herring Art Supply sales increased the Gallery of Everything gave us a little more space.  And then a little more space.   

We needed more space because you all supported us!  You recommended your favorite paints, papers, brushes, and inks.   You continue to support us by shopping local!  

Lauri and Toni moved on to other projects.  And Judy started talking about how her RV was getting dusty from a lack of use.  In May 2019, Judy retired, after over 40 years in the business of selling art, novelties, and antiques.  

Which is how Red Herring Art Supply became Red Herring Art & Supply.   The "&" was inserted to show that we had both art and the supplies to make art.  

The name Gallery of Everything is going away.   But we will continue the tradition of consignment agreements with local artists.   We still encourage the muse with antiques and collectables.   In fact, even though there are changes in displays, and more space dedicated to art supplies, you might not really notice a big difference in the shop.   

Oh yeah, and we still make Judy's Sangria recipe for First Fridays.
