K&M Evans - Art Supplies

I came across K&M Evans wholesalers a couple of years ago and I get so excited when I know I am going in there. The last time I wrote about them I got many questions about where they were and what they supplied.

Here is a map, as their own site is not ready yet, I thought it only fair to give you details of this slightly hidden treasure.

They have it all…including their own brand which is fantastic and have supplied us with their paint for the Size Matters weekends.
(you can test their paints at the Gallery this weekend while painting a miniature canvas)

They also supply to school teachers, and have paper bags and tissue paper…in fact there isn’t much they don’t have!

It is incredible how hidden this shop is. I have tried to find it today and had no luck. I was going arround in circles for 20 minutes and couldn’t find it. Will try next week again hope I will succeed.

The reason I love it is because it has everything and the prices are great!
It is hidden but if you ask for the English college it is behind that and there is a garage down the same laneway.
Happy shopping!

Yeah ,everything you all say is true ,its like Alladins cave for artists,and yes Noel you can buy canvas on a roll and linen too,I havent looked at the price cos i still have two rolls to use up.
I usually stock up on anything i need whenever I get up there I would say they have about the best value around on art supplies. I sometimes use their own brand of oils and they are lovely to use and very intense colours.
Happy shopping
