Exhibitor Demonstrations & Presentations

Sunday, March 4 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM Grex Airbrush

EDUCATIONAL EVENTS

Airbrushes - Easy as 1-2-3

When selling airbrushes, it’s important to understand how to use an airbrush and how to differentiate the various types and styles. It can get confusing with all the products available. But with the Grex Airbrush System, choosing an airbrush is as simple as 1-2-3. The systems approach to our design results in only 4 core airbrushes - and in combination with our comprehensive line of accessories, these four airbrushes can accommodate any artists applications and preferences. Each Grex airbrush can grow and transform with the artist’s needs. The simplicity of the system also means less SKUs for your to carry. So join our demonstration to learn how Grex Airbrush can allow you to offer airbrushes with a minimal investment. Presented by Danny Ink who has been with Grex Airbrush for over five years and has been working with airbrushes for many more. Danny is very familiar with the Grex Airbrush design philosophy and its influence into their sales and marketing. This has allowed him to develop a deep understanding of how airbrushes can be leveraged in many different industries and markets.

How to ArtResin Your Artwork!

Reverse Painting with Marabu Creative Colours

ArtResin

ArtResin Epoxy Resin is a non-toxic clear coat that makes artwork POP while protecting it. ArtResin founder Rebecca Zak will demonstrate how easy it is to measure, mix, pour and spread your ArtResin for a flawless finish. And, she’ll tell you why ArtResin is the best epoxy resin product on the market for all your creative applications (hint . . . ArtResin was designed by artists for artists and is chemically engineered for safety and non-yellowing protection!). Come see how easy it is to take your artwork WAY up to the next level! But be careful . . . ArtResin is addictive!

Presented by Rebecca and David Zak,

artist-entrepreneurs and co-founders of ArtResin Inc. Ten years ago, Rebecca and Dave searched in vain for a non-toxic epoxy resin with exceptional non-yellowing properties to coat their paintings and photographs. When they couldn’t find what they were looking for on the market, they teamed up with a chemist to develop a proprietary epoxy resin formulated specifically for art applications, now known worldwide as ArtResin™ epoxy resin.

Marabu

A paint for every surface. Learn something new to do with Marabu! Collage, mixed-media and pours all wrapped up in a reverse-painted glass object. Create an inspiring sample to take back to your store and show your customers all the cool things you can create with Marabu. If time allows, you’ll also get to experiment with Candle-Liners. New to the USA, these water-based wax paints make it easy to create stunningly unique custom candle designs.

Presented by Celia Buchanan, Marabu National Artist Educator and mixed media artist. Celia holds

a B.A. in 2-D surface design from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, Scotland, and an M.A. in arts management in education from the City University, London. Celia’s work has been featured in galleries; notably the Institute of Education, London, National Exhibition Center, U.K. and The London Design Center. The author of several books and magazine articles on surface design and fiber arts, Celia has been working in her field for three decades.

EDUCATIONAL EVENTS Monday, March 5 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM Crescent

Why Board is Better - Discussing the Benefits of Pre-Mounted Art Boards Not all art is created in the artist’s studio. Creating art outdoors or on location often requires the use of heavy easels or rigid backing materials just to keep the art substrates in place and secure. Not so with pre-mounted art boards from Crescent. In this discussion we will demonstrate the many benefits artists can enjoy from creating on rigid artist surfaces. Discover the large variety of board-backed artist surface options Crescent offers.

Presented by Connie Cook, Senior Product Manager for Crescent Cardboard. From her first figure drawing

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS

Join us Saturday, March 3 at 5:30 PM to honor these illustrious NAMTA Members.

Mark Golden, CEO

Allen Shefts

Golden Artist Colors, Inc.

HONOREES / NETWORKING EVENTS

Mark Golden, CEO and Co-founder of Golden Artist Colors, began the company in 1980 with 4 employees, his father Sam Golden, mother Adele and wife Barbara. Originating in a cow barn on his parents’ retirement home in rural Columbus, NY, the company made and delivered custom artist colors for artists in Manhattan. GOLDEN’s staff of Employee/Owners is now over 200, with facilities in Columbus as well as Norwich, NY. Mark was selected as the 1996 Small Business Person of the Year for New York and recognized by President Bill Clinton for his activities in creating a business exemplifying the spirit of Corporate Citizenship, providing a work environment that values all employees. In 2006, Mark received an award from the American Institute for Conservation, recognizing his contributions to the art conservation field. In 2005, he received the NYFA 2005 Inspiration Award and was honored by the Manufacturers Association of Central New York with a 2005 Wall of Fame Award. In 2011, Inc. Magazine recognized GOLDEN as one of the top 50 small businesses to work for. In 2012, GOLDEN was recognized by Americans for the Arts as a top 10 contributor to the arts in the US. In 2014 Mark received an honorary Doctorate from Colgate University for his work in support of the local and international arts community.

Jerry’s Artist Outlet Allen Shefts is a proud owner of Jerry’s Artist Outlet in West Orange, New Jersey. But as proud as he is of his business, Allen is most proud of his relationship with his wife Bonnie and their children Samantha and Spencer Shefts. Originally from Brooklyn, Allen was in the Armed Forces and stationed in Landstuhl, Germany from 1966 – 1968. Allen received an undergraduate degree from Brooklyn College and continued school for his Master's degree at CCNY. Afterwards, he created and directed one of Brooklyn’s first sheltered workshops for challenged adults. Allen is a New Jersey resident with a long and illustrious history in the retail art supply industry dating back to 1978. He was the CEO of the world’s largest art and craft suppliers and a major influence in the art supply industry. After opening another major retail flagship store and ultimately opening Jerry’s Artist Outlet, Allen’s experience, expertise, mentorship and honesty have earned him the respect and friendship of the entire NAMTA community. Allen’s motivation to open the store in New Jersey comes from a belief in the importance of art in our daily lives. His general philosophy that, attitude is everything and what goes around comes around, grounds him in every aspect of his life.

In 1997, Mark and his family began The Sam & Adele Golden Foundation for the Arts to honor their parents. Its mission is to be a significant resource for visual artists. Over the next 14 years, the Foundation donated to numerous artists and art organizations. In 2010, the Foundation began constructing the Golden Residence, a 10,000-square-foot living and work space for invited artists which opened in 2012.

americandesigneaselworks.com/about

American Design EaselWorks was conceived at the 2014 NAMTA show in Pittsburgh. While conversing with several vendors, retailers and suppliers, we realized that many of the products offered, while adhering to tradition in their form, do not meet the needs and the methods employed by younger artists today. As the art making experience and process has evolved into a more pluralistic realm, many products, specifically easels, have remained the same since their last revolution in the early ’90s. We began designing and making prototypes of easels to assist today’s artist to be more productive in their studios.

David and Rebecca fell in love with resin at the same time as they were falling in love with each other (circa 2007). Things were perfect, everything, that is, except the resin. So they did what creative people do: they problem-solved and problem-solved and problem-solved (with help from some smart Texas chemists). Finally they came up with the ideal product for their artwork: crystal clear resin that’s easy and safe to use. And now you can use it too, for whatever it is you do and all your endless ideas.
