adArt is locally owned and operated by Deb Walch who is supported by a team of practicing artists. 

The Walch family business specialised in bookbinding, art and stationery supplies for over a hundred years. The beautiful Georgian building in Macquarie Street, Hobart still bears its name.


While running the art department there for many years, Deb accumulated a huge knowledge about the range of supplies required by local artists, architects and specialist crafts people.

Deb opened the doors of adArt in 2003.

adArt supplies individual artists, architectural firms, schools and colleges throughout Tasmania. People needing art supplies in Burnie, Devonport, Launceston, Hobart and elsewhere know adArt is just a phone call away.

If you need something shipped we can easily and economically provide you a shipping service.  If we have what you want in stock we will ship it out that day. 


adArt has customers in Western Australia, Victoria and even Lord Howe Island as our customers know the quality of our products.

If you're into art and visiting Hobart soon, then plan to drop into adArt and drool over the gorgeous supplies.

It is important for us at adArt to offer an informative and pleasurable experience in our store.

We aim to share comprehensive product knowledge with anyone who visits and will follow up enquiries or tricky questions we may have to investigate further.

You may notice there are no prices listed on our site as we operate only as a shop front. As a small business it is important to us that we build loyal and supportive relationships with our customers, so you can rest assured that we will take the time and effort to provide excellent service and advice.
