Since 1968, Jerry’s Artarama has stocked shelves with multitudes of tools and supplies and helped artists show off finished work with custom framing. The comprehensive inventory fulfills artists’ every need, featuring everything from acid-free blank stretched canvases to Lukas oil colors, which have been transmitting images to paper since 1862. Custom framing services can protect and showcase a diploma, favorite 8”x10,” or beloved box of cereal.
With thousands of frame and mat samples, The Great Frame Up can satisfy any and all framing fantasies. The expert framespeople can make diplomas radiate (most diplomas can be framed for around $100), personalized jerseys glisten (most for under $300), and dorm-room movie posters sparkle (many 24x36 pieces are under $100). The design wizards can also find a home for any prized possession, such as shoebox photos, baby booties, ticket stubs, medals, and really good pot roasts. The Great Frame Up’s no-hassle guarantee and assurance that all work is done on-site means your frameables won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities.
Artist and founder Marta Echazarreta brings more than 18 years of custom-framing experience to Work of Art, encasing valuables from fine art to diplomas and jerseys. Reward graduates' academic rigor by encasing their diploma in a 1-inch black frame with a 1/4-inch mat and a 2-inch glass border ($120). Art collectors can swaddle fine paintings, lithographs, or Albert Einstein–autographed RoboCop 3 posters in a standard black or espresso frame ($56), then select from a variety of acid-free mats ($25 for a 24"x36" mat) to prevent picture yellowing.
For more than 60 years, the mounting maestros at Rex Art Framing have accented and protected cherished family photos, heirlooms, and treasured works of art.

Custom framing starts at about $50 for a basic 8"x10" frame, but prices will vary based on size, style of frame, and the artwork's degree of pricelessness.

The fun-loving teachers at Uptown Art: West Palm Beach believe they can teach anyone to paint work they'll be proud of. Child brush wielders get inspiration from helpful instructors who mentor them in their strokes, and adult classes find similar guidance from both the pro painters and their own BYOB beverages. The airy downtown studio attracts budding painters to its varied schedule of evening painting classes and daytime children's classes that span up to three festive hours of guided artmaking. Students return home with their masterpieces at their sides, each based on a class topic such as a homage to a beloved pet, a poignant still-life of potted flowers, or a self-portrait that looks suspiciously like Audrey Hepburn.
Performance Films Window Tinting uses quality products to tincture the glass of cars and homes, dramatically improving life on the other side. By making windows opaque from the outside, technicians block out UV rays that overheat motorists and fade the colors of delicate interiors. When applied to home windows, tinting can dramatically reduce energy costs and help maintain consistent temperatures. The techs also enhance the cool factor from inside the car, accessorizing auto interiors with GPS systems, audio and visual components, and alarms.
A monthly jamboree featuring more than 300 vendors, the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival is an eclectic bazaar of both modern miscellany and well-worn curiosities. Trinket connoisseurs and artisans from around the country purvey old, new, and handcrafted merchandise, with past items including anything from a 1965 Fender Stratocaster to Bakelite buttons to motorcycle folk art and the long-lost Frank Sinatra Sings the Philosophical Ramblings of Nietzsche album. Actual wares vary from day to day, but some festival mainstays—such as an assortment of vintage and designer jewelry, records, art, and clothing—serve as comforting constants for seasoned collectors.
Bradford Rowley's manually finished portraiture evokes the classic regality of a time when the paintbrush was mightier than the Polaroid. Each personally appointed opus begins life as a photograph in the artist's controlled studio environment. Individual subjects can regale the camera eye with defining aspects of their personality or hobbies, augmenting poses with props such as a violin, a horse-riding crop, or a high-school-mascot costume. After that, clients select a single shot to serve as the base of the future masterpiece. Up to eight layers of paint ensconce this initial image in the trappings of old Europe during the ensuing three-month artistic process. Bradford's team of classical crafters employs digital processes only when absolutely necessary, discreetly expunging unsightly bits of lint or the ghost of Warren G. Harding.
The pictorial preservationists at Magic Image have served the photography- and digital-imaging needs of amateurs and professionals for more than 20 years.

Shoeboxes must be no larger than 12" x 7" x 5", and photos must be free of tape, glue, staples, tears, and staged shots of friends high-fiving.

But the team also does their own creating inside the studio: custom framing is available with a large number of options for materials, glass, matting, and mounting. The gallery also brings in guest speakers for the Bring Your Own Chair lecture series, whose dates are published on the gallery’s Facebook page.

After noticing a dearth of affordable art supplies in his Long Island community, Jerry Goldstein flung open the doors of his first art supplies store in 1968, and has since kept artists nationwide stocked with paints and frames through his mail order and online catalogs. Jerry's sons David and Ira have been part of the Artarama business since their early teens, and over the years have helped their dad launch 15 discount stores in the Northeast, South, Texas, and Colorado. The family's dedication to artists and local communities is evident in the myriad workshops and store events at its locations, where staff members help customers navigate the store's shelves of rotating products and floors that switch places with the ceiling each week.
