Williamsburg Oils Launches New Website

WB New Site Homepage

Golden Artist Colors recently announced the launch of a newly designed website. The new website will feature an enhanced design, including improved layout and graphics that will allow for easier navigation within the site.

The site is now equipped with a direct link to the revised Store Finder, which allows customers to more easily locate retail stores close to them that sell Williamsburg products. While on the Store Locator page, visitors can also browse the expansive product offering of the GOLDEN Acrylics and QoR® Watercolor brands at their local retail locations.

The new site offers artists a variety of additional features, including a responsive design for enhanced usability on mobile devices such as cell phones and tablets. The new video reference page gives artists the opportunity to watch short, informative, practical material regarding the use of Williamsburg products. A direct link to The Sam & Adele Golden Gallery (The SAGG) website invites visitors to explore and learn about the Gallery and what it has to offer visitors to the Golden Artist Colors facility.

GOLDEN Educator Program “Gathering” in Florida

From November 30 to December 3, 2015, close to 80 GOLDEN Educators from around the world will attend the “GOLDEN Gathering Conference” in Fort Lauderdale. Those going are either part of the GOLDEN Working Artists Program or the GOLDEN Artist Educator Program. It is an opportunity to celebrate all the work and support they’ve given the company over the last 20 years. The knowledge, insight and experience this group has shared with artists all over the world and one another is tremendous!

The Gathering is a way to say ‘thank you’ to these professionals and an opportunity to continue to learn from them. Throughout the event, classes will be taught by the artists for their peers, in an effort to grow skill sets and potentially, ideas for future workshop offerings. A number of industry experts will give presentations and collaborate with the artists as well.

The Gathering will conclude with time for the group to see a ton of artwork together at Art Basel Miami Beach, which presents artwork from across the globe with over 250 of the world’s leading galleries participating, drawing over 70,000 visitors each year.

GOLDEN Sales Representatives will attend, giving them yet another opportunity to connect with these incredible GOLDEN product ambassadors!!
