I received my order from you yesterday and unpacked it this afternoon. I just wanted to take the time to write and say THANK YOU for the very careful packaging and shipping that came with this order. In this day and age, it is so nice to deal with a company that truly cares in an obvious way about their product and how it is received by the consumer. You will have my business for a long time to come, and many additional referrals from me. Thanks again.

Aperture Foundation
Aperture’s inspiration can be found in the early twentieth century, in Alfred Stieglitz’s famed "laboratory centers" and his influential publication, Camera Work. It was Stieglitz and such associates as Edward Steichen and Paul Strand who promoted photography as a new and powerful medium of artistic expression. For the first half of the century, because Stieglitz’s galleries were small and his periodical short-lived, there were only modest opportunities for the masterworks of an extraordinary generation of European and American photographers to reach the public. Reflecting on Alfred Stieglitz’s accomplishments, Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Barbara Morgan, Minor White, together with historian Beaumont Newhall, and writer Nancy Newhall, created a new periodical. Aperture's unique purpose includes providing access to the achievements of the medium's past masters and to the ongoing contributions of contemporary photographers, including those artists who draw image and inspiration from photography as they probe newly emerging frontiers of communication. In 2005, Aperture’s three-thousand-square-foot gallery opened in New York’s Chelsea art district. Since then, Aperture has exhibited an eclectic and critically acclaimed array of shows.

Latest Product Reviews

This product was exactly what I was looking for; no need to fine sand them as they are finished on both sides . The bass wood is easy to work with, and light weight; also really nice when finished with Ultra cover Gloss Clear made by Rust-Oleum . Will be ordering more in the near future, shipping was fast and items packed securely.

Exceptional - I don't use any other product for brush cleaning & stripping paint , and I recommend it to all who ask.

I love these pallets. I have one for my warm yellows, 1 for cool yellows and you can write on the 2 big wells with the colors that are above ;if you use a woodless graphite pencil, it won't rub off easily. This way I know the exact color and color bias for my red, blues, yellows, violets, greens, and oranges. I find I only need one for my white, black/grey tints and earth tone water colors. For stains, I clean off with olive oil then follow with soap and water so oil doesn't get into my watercolor pigments.
