Let's show Curry's Artists Materials Store that we need one downtown St. Catharines!
There has been so much economic development done downtown St Catharines within the last year, especially in the arts. Downtown now is home to a brand new Brock University campus - the Marilyn I Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts with hundreds of students who use art and craft supplies. St. Catharines currently does not have anywhere to buy supplies, with the exception of a large big box store that is very costly and doesn't carry the necessary supplies.
Craft Arts Market, a local shop in the heart of downtown who sells locally made arts and crafts has had an influx of people asking if they sell artist supplies. Although they would love to, they are not able to do this. Between the 80+ artists that sell in the shop, the First Ontario Performing Arts Centre, Marilyn I Walker campus and a city of thousands of people - we desperately need an affordable, Canadian owned, art supply store for everyone to enjoy.
Please help St Catharines continue to support the growing arts culture by signing this petition and forwarding it!
