Art Stores in NYC

I just loved Tracey's blog post this week, which listed many of New York's sewing supplies stores, and thought it would be equally great to list art supply stores in Manhattan as well.

Even if you're not an artist, undoubtedly whatever you make might need a splash of color at some point, some varnish, a brush to apply everything with, or a sketchbook to work out your ideas.

I know that, for myself, I've been meaning to check out some of the city's art suppliers, other than my usual haunts. Here are some offerings:
