Dick Blick History

Dick Blick, sometimes known as Dick Blick Art Materials or Blick Studios, was founded in 1911 by Dick Blick. The company was originally a mail order catalog for art and school supplies. Dick and his wife Grace packaged items in their kitchen and stored them in the pantry.

The company was purchased by Robert Metzenberg in 1948. It is still owned and operated by the Metzenberg family. The first retail location was in Illinois in 1974. By 1984, the company’s mail order catalog was a full 400 pages. Their eCommerce site was launched in 1997.

Today, the company has more than 50 retail locations, as well as their online eCommerce site. The company is the #1 provider of mail order art supplies in the US.

Dick Blick acquired Utrecht Art Supply in 2013 and has plans to merge the two companies. The company maintains headquarters in Highland Park, Illinois.

RE: Blick Celebrity Art Challenge

Next time you decide to create a challenge please make it a juried show. I can speak on behalf of scores of artists like myself whose work ranks among the best in the nation. Your current celebrity art challenge is disheartening because the winner is determined by the number of people who follow you on facebook and/or twitter, and not by the quality of your work. I would love to compete against my peers for a top award. And my peers feel the same. You already have the sponsors who can provide the awards. They need not be cash awards. The sponsors can provide a gold, silver, and bronze medal for each class, i.e., oils, drawings, sculpture. The judges can be museum curators who specialize in realism and illustration art. In closing, your juried show would allow the cream to rise to the top. Blick would have bragging rights for selecting the best artists in the country. I rest my case.
