Welcome to our newest member!

Steady Hand Editorial Services LLC logoWelcome to our newest member!

Southern Oregon Artists Resource sends out a welcome to our newest member, Steph Waaser of Steady Hand Editorial Services LLC to the Artist Services / Literary Arts directories! Our own experience with artists tells us that many are not comfortable writing about themselves. As a result, these artists need help with necessary writing for show submissions and other important tasks, especially where self-promotion is involved. In addition, we have a growing number of authors who might benefit from such a service. Steph is here to help with this important business service for artists!

Steady Hand Editorial Services LLC provides freelance proofreading and copy editing services for print and digital content. Also turn to this local service for help with writing or polishing your resumes and cover letters. You can also get help with proofreading and editing full-length novels, technical texts and more. Steph helps you put your best foot forward with clear, readable, and user-friendly content. Therefore, if you need help with an important writing project, check out their new listing and send an inquiry.

Central Art Store Update

 

During these uncertain times, one thing has become abundantly clear: creativity has no pause button! A tremendous increase in home-based projects means people need to re-stock their art supplies. We are so happy to see so many of you taking this time to explore your art and to share it!

 

We share your passion for art and have been busy filling curb-side and delivery orders, which help you continue to do art and encourage others to join in the process.

 

Starting the week of May the 4th, we are going to implement a “soft opening” of Central Art and along with that comes:

 

– New expanded store hours:

10am – 5pm Mon. – Fri., and

10am – 4pm Sat., CLOSED Sun.

Framing hours: Noon-5pm Mon.-Fri. and Noon-4pm Sat.

 

Phone Orders, Curbside Pick Up, and Deliveries are still available and encouraged.

 

– We will limit 4-6 customers in the store at a time. The National Retail Federation recommends a customer limit of 5 customers per 1,000 square feet of store space, excluding employees. We feel this is a little excessive and have reduced that number to focus on the health and safety of everyone.

 

– Upon entering the store you will need to sanitize your hands at our sanitizing station. Wearing of masks/ gloves is encouraged for safety, but not required.

 

6 feet Social Distancing Rule shall be employed at all times and we will have more markers to help in achieving that in the store.

 

We thank you for your continued support and encourage you to Keep Dreaming, Keep Imagining and Keep Creating!

Visit Central Art!

Central Art Coronavirus Update

Thank you for your outpouring of support and business these past few weeks.

Currently we are working to comply with the safe practices that have been put in place for the COVID-19 virus outbreak. In the wake of Governor Brown’s Stay at Home Order, we at Central Art have made some important adjustments to our hours of operation and our work schedule.

For now we are open only from for curbside pickup and delivery (free for orders $30 or more) 10am-3pm Monday through Saturday

You can call us during those hours at 541-773-1444 to place an order. You can also email us at [email protected] or message us on Facebook @centralartsupply to place an order.

We remain committed to serving our artist community where we share your passion for art. We hope that everyone stays safe, happy and most importantly healthy as we navigate these changes together.

For those who haven’t received Central Art Supply’s email this morning, here is an important announcement that will ensure you are able to continue making art to keep you engaged and sane as the coronovirus pandemic continues to unfold.

Central Art COVID-19 Protective Measures in Place

We at Central Art are working hard to do our part with COVID-19 protective measures. We are closely monitoring the best practices suggested by the CDC and state and local governments, realizing that they are changing daily.

For now there are a few things you can count on from all of us at Central Art.

We are taking measures to frequently wash our hands and cleaning our high-touch surfaces. We are also taking a proactive measure by asking customers to use hand sanitizer or to wash their hands when they come into the store.

Currently we remain open for business at our regular store hours, which are Monday-Friday 9am-6pm and Saturday 10am-5pm. When you come in we will always welcome you and engage in your art endeavors, but we will also allow for social distancing.

Along with many other businesses, we are offering curbside pickup. You can call and order your favorite art supplies, then drive up to the store and we will bring your order out to your car.

However, we understand that many of you may not want to make the trip to Central Art, so we are offering free home delivery* for orders $30 and over. Call and place your order and we will do our best to deliver it to you within 24 hours. *Delivery available for the Rogue Valley area only.

To place an order or to assist you in any way, you can reach us via phone: 541-773-1444, email: [email protected], Facebook Messenger: @centralartsupply

We hope that everyone stays safe, happy, and most importantly healthy as we navigate these changes together. Thank you for your continued support of Central Art, where we share your passion for art.
