ANNAPOLIS, MD - An Annapolis art store is reopening under new ownership after being closed for about two years.

Located in Maryland Hall, Art Things will host a preview day this Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. The grand opening is Dec. 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Art Things first opened in 1965 and has more than 55 years of history in Annapolis. Most of that time was spent in West Annapolis.

"I value the legacy of Art Things," new owner Sarah Winchester said in a press release. "It was my go-to store since I was a college art student."

The release said Art Things closed "after difficulties during Covid and a transient ownership."

The store carries art supplies that range from amateur to professional with an emphasis on hard-to-find items. Special orders are also welcome.

Art Things is located on Maryland Hall's ground floor at 801 Chase St. #108, making it easily accessible for anybody taking classes at the hall

"I'm doing my very best to preserve what makes Art Things so awesome while also juggling the issue of a much smaller space," Winchester said. "I've packed a lot of items into room 108, I think our customers are going to be pleasantly delighted."

Customers can learn more by visiting, emailing or calling (410) 878-7786. 

Supporters can also follow the business on Facebook and Instagram.
