WHAT MAKES US PLUS
The History of Art + Artisans
Jen and Debbie, 2004
Connections can be found in everything and the story of how Art + Artisans was formed is no exception.
To give you a little history on our history, and my connection to Austin and downtown, about 16 years ago I was sitting at the Brown Bar with my mom, waiting on a table at Gumbos.
We were drinking martinis and talking about what kind of business we could start together. At the time, I was a contract art consultant for a gallery based in Houston. She was an avid art collector working in marketing and sales for a national corporation. And, all of a sudden, it was just so obvious and hit me. I said, “You should come into the art business with me!”
We grabbed a stack of napkins and started scribbling away. Right then and there, Art + Artisans was formed.
Our vision was to be able to offer clients a way to express their story and their brand in a unique, distinctive way. We wanted to provide art that really resonated with our clients and spoke to who they were, all while connecting to those they wanted to attract. We didn’t want to sell cookie-cutter art that people would walk by and never notice. We also didn’t want people to have this notion that art could only be a framed piece hung on a wall.
We wanted to work with artists—to talk to them about the specifics of the space and the client so that they could create truly custom pieces that spoke to the needs of each and every project. We didn’t want to limit ourselves to certain artists or certain types of artwork. We wanted to work with all artists and have every possibility of art be attainable.
So, that’s exactly what we did. We’ve positioned ourselves as the “plus” between art and artisans — bringing the best, most innovative options to meet our clients’ goals.
That’s what makes us plus.
