Top Notch Art outfits artists and hobbyists with a plethora of materials and supplies with which to craft a personal masterpiece. Hoist color-craving canvases atop an aluminum Tri C easel ($14.99), and slather a rainbow of hues from a selection of Winsor & Newton Galeria acrylic 200-millileter paints ($6.99) or Higgins drawing inks ($2.80)―useful for crafting picturesque autumn sunsets or invisible man portraits. For finished works of art, Top Notch Art encases canvases, photos, and other items in a customized frame, contoured specifically for each piece ($75–$150). The staff’s image wrappers tailor-framing services to the customer’s choice of frame, mat, and glass to ensure artwork comes out ideally themed and protected from the watery finger smudges of visiting merfolk.

Top Notch Art Centre
Painters, graphic artists, and architects have found the tools of their trade at the one-stop Top Notch Art Centre since 1971. A floor-to-ceiling picture window beckons passersby on Craig Street, where shade trees shelter a block of historic buildings and small businesses, including a rare bookshop and a cobbler for broken dreams. Inside, the staff leads 2-D artists toward the right brush for watercolor or oil from their selection of Winsor Newtons, or printmaking papers from Arches Cover and BFK Rives lines. The store also makes an effort to seek out artisanal brands, such as Gamblin Artists Oils and Mt. Vision Handmade Pastels. Bookbinders can pick up screw posts and glue, and drafters can run their fingers over delicate, smooth vellum and curl them around the curves and angles of nine types of stylus guides. Past the tall, narrow aisles, a framing shop encases completed works of art in glass and caution tape to prepare them for display.
