Gina was simple awesome.
I thought I'd be hard to find but they have a sign on the door. The employees were so amazing and helpful. They clearly know what their doing and educated me a lot on the paints and brushes I went to buy. I would def come back they are worth it!!!!!
Great help. She helped me find the right color even though it took 10 minutes and the phone rang.
It's honestly a really great art supply shop, I just wished they'd clean the place more often.
Its a hidden gem but will definitely visit again soon.!
Great if you are a painter, not a huge selection of markers or graphic arts type stuff. Knowledgeable and helpful staff if you ask for help!
An artist is only as good as his tools.
Soho, an independent art supply store located in its namesake Manhattan borough has opened a long needed store in the commercial district of Bushwick Brooklyn. The location is fittingly, in the heart of the growing graffiti district amongst work by Space Invader and Buff Monster. Their building is covered with giant murals.
As you walk upstairs to the retail store there are two doors - to the left you'll find canvas, paper, panels, stretchers and framing. To the right you'll find all your paints, pens, brushes and supplies.
The neighborhood needed a resource like this and anything that would have opened would obviously fulfill this need but Soho brings its own personality and flare.
On my last visit I went in for some paint markers and a small ruler, basic yes but my options were endless. Although very familiar with what j was looking for, once amongst all the great options I became indecisive. Luckily Rebecca the clerk was overly helpful and very knowledgeable. When the one thing I was looking for wasn't there she offered to have what I needed sent to the store for my pickup tomorrow. She even offered to call when it arrived. Service is key and theirs is great!
While choosing some small boards on the opposite side I watched one of the workers stretching a large 6 foot by 8 foot linen canvas. So not only do they offer all the canvas building tools necessary for your art, they also provide services such as this. You can order any custom piece, from odd oversized canvases to oval or triangular, anything you want. All done with care and precision.
Another amazing selling point for Soho is they offer their own line of supplies. They have custom acrylic paints and mediums, such as, linseed oil, turpentine and varnish. And are offered in quantities from small to gallon sized jugs.
If your an artist or just looking to explore
Your hidden creativity, this is a perfect place to find tools and supplies, plus the walk through the the art covered streets is a great inspiration.
Everyone needs to know that the retail store is here! They have everything you need and it's the only place in the neighborhood for art supplies. Not to mention that they build there own frames. BA
I have had several good experiences at Soho Art Supplies, buying large primed canvasses for painting. The staff is helpful. I think it may be a little difficult for customers to figure out how to enter. Take the elevator or stairs up to the 2nd level.
Most times I come here, they say "no". No spray paint caps. No airbrush supplies. The entrance to the shop is unmarked, as if they would just as soon not have your business. Friendly staff, and the shelves are full of wares I would one day love to buy...if they'll let me!
Great new shop !! Love the frame selection. Lots n lots of supplies ..
