What's going on, Albuquerque?
After almost 70 years in business, Langell's Art Supplies recently shut its doors for good. Located on Carlisle near Candelaria.
Oh noooooo!!!! I used to love going into the store when it was on Central across from UNM....the possibilities were endless with all the tools and materials in that store, definitely a loss for the Duke City.
Truly a loss. They really knew their product and would spend time with you to be sure you got what you needed. The other art stores in town just aren't in the same league.
I read that Georgia O'Keefe shopped there- probably when on Central. Nice to think of her wandering the aisles, getting good service. D
I used to work there in the early 80s. Ms. Langell was a sweetheart. It was fun interacting and working with so many wonderful artists. My mom used to shop there and get her framing done when the store was on 4th street back in the late 60s. I wrote a story about Langell's several years ago for DCF, but those archives are long gone.
And yes, I heard the stories that Georgia O'Keefe used to shop there. Apparently she would stand near the door and point in the direction of the items she wanted to her helper. Lots of famous artists through those doors, lots of beautiful art, lots of great stories. I miss that place!
A memorable event, Dee. Thanks for posting. I frequented Langells too infrequently but always enjoyed myself when I did. And now to know that Georgia O' Keeffe also went (i used to go to the one on Central, as well), makes it extra special. I'm sorry it's closing.
Wow Adelita, you're filled with info and surprises. Thanks for the Georgia info. Very cool.
Anna, it actually closed a few months ago. Yes, it will be missed.
To anyone, I'm confused as to the old location. 4th Street? On Central across from UNM?
Were there two prior locations? Confused, D
The location on 4th Street was just south of Candelaria. The Langell's on Central across from UNM was a different member of the family. They were actually two different stores.
I can't remember when they moved to Carlisle...it must have been mid to late 70s.
OK thanks. I got it now.
