Wood Panels

Hi, there!
More and more, the artists who wield paint & brush are harkening back to yesteryear, eschewing wiggly canvas, and instead choosing rigid supports on which to express their innermost demons and whimsies.

Yielding to their demands, the Art Cellar began carrying wood panels, much to delight of our beret-wearing solvent-sniffers.

Handcrafted by burl-knuckled woodsmen at Wisconsin's Old Wood Studio, these lightweight, fine-sanded, birch-faced panels are about 1.5" inches deep, and come in all your favorite sizes and prices:
6 x 6"............. $4.20
8 x 8"............. $4.50
8 x 10"........... $4.75
10 x 10"......... $5.35
12 x 12"......... $5.50
11 x 14"......... $6.95
12 x 16"......... $7.75
16 x 20"......... $11.25
15 x 30"......... $15.65
20 x 20"......... $17.00
18 x 24"......... $14.65
20 x 30"......... $18.95
24 x 30"......... $21.95 (Note: prices and selection may change.)

This rigid surface means that your painting is far less likely to crack, which recommends it to encaustic and other thickly-applied media. Done on a panel, a painting is virtually ready to hang up and sell for thousands of dollars. It may even pay for all the paint you bought.

You may also use panels to handsomely mount paper upon which to draw or paint.

In addition, our display of wood panels features the coolest sign in the world:
