Yes, that’s right, Artists UK started trading on 2nd May 1994 and has now ceased to be a teenager.
It seems like some kind of ancient history lesson on the one hand and hard to believe it has been that long on the other hand and since I have three hands it also seems to have passed very quickly on that other third hand. Maybe I’ll have a fourth hand by the time I’ve finished writing this.
Although our earliest trading place was at a craft market we were sending prints and posters all over the world very early on due to our various trade contacts etc all over the world. It was a slow and kind of organic growth where our trade contacts knew artists and our artists put us in touch with trade contacts etc. I even had a call from Terry Pratchett once putting me in touch with a company in Australia. Unfortunately, I was in bed with flu on the redirected call so I doubt he thought I was the most ‘get up and go’ person he’d ever spoken to since at the time all my ‘get up and go’ had got up and gone. Meeting great artists like Alan Lee and Brian froud led to publishing a number of fine-art limited editions that we are still very proud of and some of these are in the sale.
If you are quick enough you can grab some of the bargains going in our 20th Anniversary sale that is on until 5pm Thursday 8th May 2014.
We’ve included many popular artists like Alan Lee, Roger Dean, MC Escher, Bruce Pennington, Chris Achilleos, Brian Froud, Josh Kirby (Discworld), Michael Whelan and Peter Pracownik just to mention a few and the prices are up to 60% off the usual prices and given that many of these items are totally unavailable elsewhere that means a real bargain.
You can treat yourself or stock up early for someone’s special anniversary, birthday or even Christmas if you are organised enough to remember you’ve got it when the time comes. Not sure I’d manage that but you’re probably cleverer than wot I am. Just click on the banner button above and you’ll be whisked off to the cornucopia of Artists UK’s 20th Anniversary sale … as long as you do it soon enough that is.
