Yes, there really is an Arlene!
Arlene's Artist Materials started out as a ceramic studio in 1960, originally located in a small 500 sq ft store on Madison Ave (the site of the present day Partridge Pub). Arlene's outgrew their original store and moved to its current location at 57 Fuller Road, Albany, NY (with over 10,000 sq ft) in 1974.
Teachers, students, craft enthusiasts, parents and hobbyists can always find what they need at Arlene's. Come and browse the handmade art papers, unique journals and artsy novelties in the gift section of our store. Even the non- artist can find something at Arlene's.
