Cass Art, the UK’s leading independent art supplies retailer, have recently brought their unique shopping experience to Market Street. Started in London in 1984, the Cass Art mission: ‘Let’s Fill this Town with Artists’ sits at the heart of everything they do. The launch of their shop in Brighton is an exciting step in opening affordable art shops across the country.
“This is our 10th shop in the UK and our most exciting new store opening yet,” says founder Mark Cass. “Brighton is bursting with a brilliant and vibrant artist community, arts festival, as well as a hub of creative businesses.” He and his company are earnest about their involvement in the art world, engaging with artists and novices alike and inspiring everyone to make and do art. They support both local and national galleries with art materials and educational events, partnering with local artist Jake Spicer for many years.
As all of the store’s staff are artists themselves, they are able to offer expert advice on any creative project. Whether it’s an artistic bit of homework or a professional technique, they’re happy to give guidance and welcome any questions that come their way.
Committed to bringing the world’s best art materials at the guaranteed lowest prices, Cass Art offers further discounts to students with their Cobalt Blue card and artist educators with the Viridian card. Now they offer everyone else aged 18+ their Cass Art Rewards card, which provides access exclusive offers and events.
Cass Art Brighton is at 21 Market Street, Brighton, BN1 1HH.
