Latest news for isoptin
hello friends, i want to thank everyone for their support over these last eleven years, but it is time to move on and close this chapter of my life. I couldn’t have asked for a more isoptin wonderful group of friends and time spent here at Wet Paint, but it's with a heavy heart that I have decided to shut down the business. I have been fighting this for years now; I have such a strong since of identity associated with this place. But isoptin, due to increased corporate competition and their massive buying power, more people buying online, it has been harder and harder to maintain this small independent art supply. I am very excited to move on and take this opportunity to finish school and complete my BS and Maters in Horticulture and Restoration Ecology. I have had the privilege to watch and be a part of so many awesome friendships, gallery openings, artist collectives and artistic creations because of this common meeting ground. For those who have been around since the [isoptin] beginning, you have seen the birth of Wet Paint’s Final Fridays, Attic Records, the Oil Bar, the B-side Gallery, and CBAG in Phoenix. For some of you, we might have been the first gallery to hang your art and I thank you for letting us have that opportunity. So, as of July 1st, Wet Paint’s Tempe location will be closing. Wet Paint’s 806 S. Ash Ave store front will be under new ownership and the new guys will be fully stocked in all types of Graffiti goods and Hip Hop gear. So, I am asking for one last favor… we really need your help to clear this place out of all art supply products. Everything is on sale and priced to move from now until July 1st. I hope to see you soon!!! Oh, and yes we will be having a closing party… it would be silly not to. I can’t thank you enough, Jessica JordanCongrats to Jessica Jordan and everyone at Wet Paint for a solid eleven years of business. PHXTACO would not exist if it wasn't for the support they've shown this website since the very beginning.
