Best Art Supply Store (2004)
Texas Art Supply Longtime Houston staple Texas Art Supply wins by sheer volume. And since its only real competition -- Montrose's other locale for all things arty, Utrecht -- shut its doors earlier this year, Texas Art reigns supreme in anything an artist needs: rubber stamps, canvases, paints, stencils, clay, markers, easels and desks. Daily discount prices make Texas Art the place to go when inspiration strikes and you can't find a brush. Its affiliation with the Texas Arts League makes for constant art-class offerings in such areas as painting or resin-mold making. The place can turn a clueless novice into a budding Dalí.
