Why use outdated materials that have well documented drawbacks? At Artefex, we believe that artwork is meant to last. This makes us unpopular with restoration artists, but we are willing to take that risk.

Where We Are From

We are manufacturers of artists surfaces in northern California, in the heart of Mendocino County. We started Artefex out of necessity. There was nobody offering ACM panels! We had artists ask us where they can buy ACM panels but after years of asking other companies to make ACM panels to no avail, we decided that we would have to make them ourselves. That’s when Artefex was born! We started with a few types of panels and now offer surfaces for almost any medium and any painting style out there! It is extremely rewarding creating painting surfaces for artists that will outlast most other painting surfaces. We feel we are helping modern masters preserve their artwork for future generations.
