Why I shop at Sarnoff’s.

Sarnoff is simply a fabulous art store! Going into Sarnoff is a special creative experience for me because I love to browse each aisle to see what is new.

I am a pastel artist and I buy myriad art materials at Sarnoffs including the pastels I use, and the only paper I use which is Sennelier La Carte pastel card.

Henry Sarnoff is a great guy. He will order anything you need. Henry really cares about artists and their art, and likewise the artists adore Henry. 

I feel very grateful to have Sarnoffs here in Tucson.
