"We realized the unique value of having three distinct art spaces under one roof," said Bob Bagnato, president of Art Source for Design. "and the entire community should have access to the unmatched art buying and custom framing experience we offer through those spaces." Bagnato reiterated that members of the design trade "will continue to receive their substantial industry discounts and the superior customer service they have come to expect."
Perfect for these economic times, ASFD also announced it would conduct a Designer Art Clearance Sale for the public every Saturday. Held in the warehouse area,
the sale features hundreds of pieces of artwork including those that have been returned due to retail store closings, store merchandise returns,overstocks, etc. some selling for as much as 80% off. Some items are slightly imperfect, but most are straight from the shelves and in perfect condition.
Art Source for Design also plans a series of artist receptions and openings. The first will be a "Break Out Artist Showcase" held on Saturday, September 12th, featuring
35-40 recent works by some of Scottsdale's most popular up-and-coming as well as established contemporary painters. Represented artists include Adam Hand, Joel
Holsinger, Marian Crane and Marlene Burns.
In addition to showcasing compelling artwork and framing, Art Source Design is taking an active role in the community, sponsoring fundraising art auctions for local
non-profit organizations, including a fundraising auction for LifeUnfolded on August 15, 2009 and another fundraising art auction to benefit American Diabetes
Association on August 29, 2009. Non-profit organizations around the Valley are encouraged to contact ASFD to inquire about organizing a fundraising art auction
