UArt History


Each of our stores offer award-winning fine art supplies and custom framing departments – and an extraordinary selection of creative gifts. Add to that a friendly, knowledgeable staff and you have one of the best art resources in Northern California.

Started in 1948, “UArt” is still a family-owned and operated business that is committed to the communities we serve. While we’ve kept up with the times via our website and online shopping – we never forget the importance of having real people available to personally assist you with all your creative needs.

A one-stop shop where you’ll find everything you need to create your own “masterpiece.” If it’s creative – you’ll find it  here!
