Utrecht is a great place to find the best, best prices of acrylic paint try thier own brand is really good- almost as good as Golden for the acrylics, they have a selection of pigments to make your own paints or for encaustic too. Brush selection is pretty good, and print paper selection is pretty well priced. Nice selection for portfolio carriers and picture frames. Student discount and gift card is available. Staff is fabulous and personable. Plus art first thursdays are held here.

Pros: prices and community building

I was accustomed to the Utrecht in Washington, DC, so it was a bit of a shock to find such a small store here in Portland. But I found it to be admirably well-stocked for a store its size, and the staff were simply phenomenal.

Utrecht had everything I needed and then some. All the regulars were there--various papers, canvases, pastels, oils, acrylics, and more--but I also found the ink I needed for my vintage printing blocks and, oddly, a free sample of colored pencils. The staff reminded me of the Utrecht discount card and signed me up for their catalog and sales flyers--very handy when you're a not-quite-starving artist. I still miss the enormous and beautiful DC store, but the Portland store is a darn nice one, and I'll definitely keep coming back.

PROS: Excellent staff, well-stocked store
CONS: Small store (but it manages well for its size)
