Artists' Materials & Framing in St. Paul, MN

Status of the Store – Monday 4/13


WPfallsunshineWe’re back!  Although we received a “Critical Sector” exemption from the Office of the Governor prior to the original “Stay at Home” decree, we thought it was in the best interests of our community to go dark for two weeks…it wasn’t an easy decision, but we all have to do our part, right?  Scott and I still came into the shop every day to work on projects and respond to customer questions via e mail, and many of those questions were the same: “Why aren’t you open?”  A lot of people are depending on us for their school, professional, and “stay at home” supplies!  So…we’re gonna try to strike a balance: abundance of caution meets pandemic-style retailing:

  • We’ll be on site 10:00am – 5:00pm Monday thru Saturday.  Place your orders on our website, via e mail, or by phone during these hours. We have minimal staffing, so thanks for your patience!
  • Orders received by 1:00pm will be available for curbside pickup after 2:00pm.*
  • Need your order delivered?  Delivery to addresses in Minneapolis or St. Paul is free for orders over $50.00.**

We look forward to safely serving your creative supply needs…thanks for your continued support!


*More about curbside pickup: Pickup hours are from 2:00-5:00 only.  After we confirm your pickup will be ready, head on over during that time. Call the store when you arrive and we’ll place your order on the pickup table outside our front door.
**More about delivery: If we have it in stock, we’ll deliver your $50+ order to your Minneapolis or St. Paul address within 24 hours.  Live outside of the core cities?  We can still deliver for a nominal fee…let’s talk!

  1. I feel better just knowing you are there!

  2. I picked up a painting on vacation. Was hoping you could frame it for me? Or. Maybe just stretch it? Outs riled up right now and has been since March 5th. Is that service available?

    • Hi Kevin,
      We are not currently able to do framing consultations in person as we are only open for curbside pickup and delivery. That said, please contact our framer, Kate, directly via email with what size you need/specs and it’s possible she can work it into her queue without talking in person. Her email is kate@wetpaintart.com. Thanks!
