art materials to area artists, designers, architects, and other creative
people for forty years.
Minutes from Route 50, and close to downtown, the shop offers an astounding
range of fine art, graphic, and craft supplies on two floors.
This charming neighborhood offers the Annapolis area’s most creative shopping,
and it’s an easy drive from Washington D.C. or Baltimore or Kent Island
/ Queen Annes County on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The West Annapolis
shopping district is easy to find, with plenty of free parking.
at Art Things, Inc. is on customer service, and the staff members are
all artists, with over 50 years-combined expertise in the field. Art
Things, Inc. has been family owned and operated since 1966, and what
you don’t find in their diverse stock (from the usual to the unusual)
they will be happy to special order for you. The atmosphere is fun and
arty, with their collection of Mona Lisa images surrounding you on every
wall. The collection, having grown to over 500 “altered states of Mona”
over the last ten years, has a bit of a “cult following” among regular
customers, who often contribute original versions.
