Drive down South Hanley road and you can’t help but be drawn to Artmart’s bold, paint splattered facade.  This explosion of color is symbolic of all the exciting things that have been happening inside.  Since 1952 Artmart has been exploding with over 25,000 square feet of cutting edge art supplies, one-of-a-kind gifts, kid-friendly crafts, decorative papers, a plethora of paints, pens, brushes, canvases, journals and an extensive custom framing department. It’s no wonder why Artmart is St. Louis’ most creative store in every sense of the imagination.

Artmart inspires the entire community. They host free monthly demonstrations featuring the most innovative techniques, throw public painting parties and give pint-sized Picassos the opportunity to flex their creative muscle at kid-friendly craft sessions.  So, whether you are an artist by trade, an art enthusiast, a papercrafting junkie or an overachieving gift-giver in search of that one-of-a-kind gift, there’s always something new to discover at Artmart.

When it’s time to frame your favorite piece of art, treasured memorabilia, family heirloom, prized diploma, or antique mirror, you can count on Artmart’s skilled framers to nail it every time. They have more frames than you can picture, from custom to ready-made to desktop frames, and they cut and assemble all of their frames, matting and glass in-house to ensure that each frame meets your exact specifications. It’s this attention to detail that sets them apart from other frame stores.

Owner, Keith Baizer has been putting his creative touch on this family business since he started working with his father, Dick, while attending high school. The Baizer family has always adhered to the philosophy that good things come to those who create, and their generous support of the St. Louis art community is legendary. From donating all the art supplies for the Clayton Art Fair Creative Castle to fulfilling the artistic needs of The Siteman Cancer Center’s Arts as Healing program, to sending their “art ambassador” to local hospitals to teach free art classes; Artmart is committed to inspiring creativity in everyone.

The next time you are looking to get creative, stop by Artmart, 2355 South Hanley Road and get inspired.
