Boulder Creek, CA 95006
Art Services by Steve Lanctot is a long time Boulder Creek business that has been in several locations in town for the past 35 years.
Steve and Mary met in Santa Cruz in the mid ‘70’s while working in the early natural food industry, making products for health food stores. Looking for a change, they moved to Boulder Creek in 1977 and for 5 years, Steve worked in museum services in San Jose, performing insurance restorations. He learned framing, cleaning and art restorations of paintings, books, pottery and other precious and sentimental pieces. It was here that he learned his craft and honed his skills for his lifelong career.
In 1981, Steve and Mary started Art Services by Steve Lanctot in the storefront in downtown Boulder Creek that is now Art Lab. In 1983, the business needed a bigger space so they moved to the WCTU building, which was the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. That building is now the site of The Foundre. Art Services was in that location for 29 years and in 2012 they moved to their current location on the south end of town at 12788 Hwy 9 Unit #1.
Steve and Mary, for many years, were involved in the early version of the Redwood Mountain Faire that was held at Highland Park. They helped organize a gallery for local artists for that event and that was the impetus for the creation of what is now the Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center in Ben Lomond.
Please visit Steve and Mary at Art Services by Steve Lanctot for your framing and restoration needs and benefit from their 40 years of experience.
