The equipment that I use on a daily basis plays an important role because it has the potential to either help or hinder me as I’m painting throughout the day. Instead of worrying about whether or not my canvas is going to fall off of the easel (which has happened to me more times than I would like to admit), I would rather be concentrating on other things like drawing, values, color and edges within a painting. By not having to worry about whether or not my equipment will function properly, I then have the freedom to concentrate on getting the results that I’m looking for on canvas.
When it comes to providing the highest standards in quality and craftsmanship, Jack Richeson & Co., Inc. sets the standard as a leading manufacturer and supplier of high-quality art materials. This family owned business is dedicated to providing the very best equipment available.
One of the most prominent examples of their dedication to excellence can be found in each of their BEST easels which are made from American Red Oak and are built to last a lifetime. Each one is proudly made in the U.S.A and comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty, giving the artist peace of mind and assuring that they are receiving the industry’s gold standard of excellence.
In addition to their incredibly sturdy easels, Jack Richeson & Co., Inc. also manufactures a wide variety of artist taborets to meet every budget. Ranging from compact designs to large showcase pieces, each BEST taboret is made with the same dedication and attention to detail as their BEST easels and comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty as well.
In 2004, Jack Richeson & Co., Inc. expanded their facility by adding an additional 25,000 square feet to their building, giving them the opportunity to make room for the Jack Richeson School of Art and Gallery. The school conducts workshops and classes throughout the year and is dedicated to serving and supporting the fine art community. The gallery provides exhibit opportunities for both emerging and established artists as well as displaying a permanent collection of over two hundred paintings.
