Art is a passion, and we, at Art on Main, understand that. Why? Because it is owned and run by a professional practicing artist. Art on Main is an art store for artists and crafters by artists and crafters. We are driven by passion and a broad understanding of what goes into an artwork, and we will do everything we can to make sure that your art or craft projects are supported by the best materials and the best advice.

Art on Main, established in 2012, and under new management since 2020, is run by Cedric Vanderlinden, a professional practicing artist with over 30 years of teaching, painting, drawing, and exhibiting experience. It remains Gqeberha/Port Elizabeth's best-loved art store, and should be your first destination for all your arts and crafts needs, from canvases to erasers, from charcoal to paint, and everything in between. If we don't have it, our expert and trained staff will help you find it and order it.

We also stock and showcase, and advise on digital drawing and painting platforms, specifically WACOM and COREL products.

Need more? There are art classes, and an open studio where you can see the products being used. Art on Main is more than just a store, it is your workspace away from home, where experts are there to advise.
