Who We Are
Palettes was created in 2012 by 3 local artists who wanted to create a fun place to create art with family & friends. We're excited to celebrate our 5th anniversary in February 2017!
Mallory Powell - Owner/Manager
I grew up in the metro west area and I love having a business in such a welcoming and diverse community.
I graduated from Umass Darmouth in 2010 with a bachelors in Fine Arts/concentration in printmaking. After graduation I worked tireless retail jobs until I stumbled upon Palettes. I started off working once a week,then became a co-manager and then I had the absolute pleasure of taking over ownership of such an established business!
I've always been a creative soul and enjoy making art in many outlets. My favorite thing about Palettes is that budding artists of any experience can come in and create their own masterpiece in just a few hours! Can't forget our world famous music playlists and the full bar!
I currently live in Boston with my orange cat, Elliot. In my spare time I volunteer with animals, try to keep my succulents alive and explore the city.
