SPECTRUM SPECIALS (article first published : 2004-01-13)

Spectrum Distributors, Durban's new factory style discount outlet for art supplies are keeping to their word with great new year specials on Winsor & Newton Cotman, Winton and Galeria paints and brushes.

Spectrum is giving up to a 35% discount off their already low "factory shop" prices. Shoppers are urged to hurry as this offer is only valid while stocks last.

Furthermore, due to the support they have had from Durban's art community, Spectrum have planned an expansion of their showroom which will allow them to stock new lines such as Winsor & Newton Artist series oils, Royal Dutch Talens Van Gough and Amsterdam oils, acrylics and watecolours and Lyra series 600 colour pencils.

The launch of the expansion is set for March and will co-incide with the launch of the locally manufactured Artiste brand of fine art oils that will retail for as little as R45 for 110ml tub. This "proudly e-Thekwini" oil has been positively endorsed by a number of local artists and experts.

Spectrum will also be introducing an artists quality locally made sizing and gesso formulated by a European chemical manufacturer and a re-production of one of the worlds most sought after brands. Also planned is the introduction of their own brand of sized and gessoed fine art canvas on the roll, stretched canvases and canvas boards. This will also include a service to provide custom made stretched canvases on a 24 hour turn around time.

Artists from all over KZN are welcome to vist the shop at 415 Umgeni Rd, Durban. Spectrum can be contacted by calling 031-3096404. To subscribe to their monthly newsletter, please type "art newsletter" in the subject and email to spectrum@megajet.co.za
