We’ve been offering quality art materials, office supplies, greeting cards, novelty gifts, maps and carefully selected accessories as well as valued services like custom picture framing, graphic design and copy shop output, serving Hudson Valley residents and visitors for almost 40 years.
Catskill Art was conceived and birthed in our current location in Woodstock NY way back in 1978. Artists in the Hudson Valley enthusiastically embraced the effort and assisted Paul Solis-Cohen, owner, in developing a world-class inventory.
Services like custom picture framing and a copy shop with graphic designers soon became part of the Catskill Art portrait. After travelling to Woodstock, artists from throughout the Hudson Valley wanted Catskill Art locations closer to them. They got their wish when Catskill Art opened in Kingston (Nick Peluso, Manager) in1983 and Poughkeepsie (Doug Shippee, Manager) in 1988. Since then we have received awards by being voted the Best art supply store, Best picture frame shop, and Best greeting card shop in the Hudson Valley by the readers of Hudson Valley publications.
True to our roots, we invite suggestions from our customers, interact closely with our communities and give back generously. Selling only through our retail locations, we have perfected the art of customer service and maintain a unique identity that others have tried to copy. We discount generously, making artist supplies affordable for all and offer a rewards program, generating extra-big smiles.
Much of our history can be enjoyed by listening to our many years of radio ads. Find them on our site and enjoy the creative expression of Nick Peluso, who wrote and voiced most of them.
