Art Insider – State of the Art Store Update

artistic insider prescott art store

A thank you to our gracious and amazing community – You have shown your hearts to us

We at the Art Store would like to thank you, our wonderful community, for your condolences, personal messages and cards in the loss of Pam Kendall, the owner’s mother, class manager. The nicest comment we have heard is that when ,”such a good hearted woman brings her best to her family, they never leave this place as long as their family is present.” No services were planned as the family did not wish any further harm to our community.
Patrick Harper has also been missed and discussed. His students voicing the loss of such a gem to the community. Patrick would have said we need to keep inspiring others. His good friend, Harold Nelson (award winner to Prescott’s first Plein Air Festival) has offered to take over his classes in the store. After the vaccine has been received by this new instructor, we will be in touch about future painting classes and the timing of such.
“As the owner of the store and a leader of the local art community, I  will be meeting with Patrick’s family to discuss his art collection and studio business to ensure his art is well protected and his family understands its value. During this grieving period, I have been appreciative of the time off from the classes. We will be bringing the classes and workshops back in the near future. All students and interested parties will be contacted when these are available.” – Keith Kendall, Owner & Manager
