This Month in Art History

March, 1953 - Vincent van Gogh was born in Groot-Zundert, the Netherlands. Van Gogh's troubled life, fraught with depression and psychological unrest, would only be eclipsed by his prolific career. The artist was an innovator, and his influence on the trajectory of modern art is undeniable.

- Thomas Moore

It took almost 2 months to ship; that is why the 3 stars. I teach at a University, and we wanted a solid easel that could hold up the abuse of students for years. This is definitely a strong easel, and it seems like it will hold up to the test of time. The top portion of the easel allows you to hold paintings at an angle so you decrease reflection of the surface which is nice... but it takes a little bit of time to get used to adjusting it to hold the canvas well. I would buy another one (or 30) if they would have shipped in a week or two. The easel itself gets 5 stars.

I'm loving this work desk/station, and I put it together in no time at all. The station is moveable; around the room or from room to room. The casters make it easy. That said, I have a laminate floor, and have to have the casters braced against something to stop them from rolling away with the station. If you have the same problem, you might try using the included stationary feet. Lowering the angle of the top might catch a finger if you're not aware. The drawers are lightweight and small, but nice to have at your fingertips. The side trays are molded plastic. Pencil sized holes work great for differing sizes of pencils, brushes and grease pencils. I used it as a light table with a lamp under the station.It worked great. There is a large metal "pencil tray". It's handy, but it will remind you that you should not lean on the top.

Great idea, poor execution. Once a photo has been burnished on to the adhesive, per manufacturer's instructions, lifting the photo off to transfer to mounting board yields often long, gooey, sticky web-like strands of adhesive that have a tendency to wrap around to, and stick to, front of photo. It leaves what is essentially an irreparable mess, even when using utmost care. Also, unless burnishing print to adhesive is done with rather extraordinary force, I've found it difficult to get the adhesive to stick to more than about 90% of the print's back.
