The knowledgeable team at Jerry’s Artarama stockpile a vast selection of art supplies for amateur and professional projects. Staff members roam the store answering art questions and help track down hard-to-find supplies for any medium including wrapped canvases and invisible ink. The onsite custom-framing shop outfits works in traditional wood and aluminum frames with a variety of matting options to enhance and preserve enveloped images. The emporium also hosts workshops throughout the month to develop oil- and watercolor-painting techniques, as well as demos to meet and learn from instructors in a more informal setting.
Shattered glass broken across a sidewalk is often the last witness to an act of destruction. But for Jenni Kirby, the founder of Tile One On Mosaics, these pieces of glass are the building blocks of mosaic art. She uses colorful chunks and chips of tile, stone, or glass to transform mundane, everyday surfaces. A simple table pops with the kaleidoscopic texture of marbles or shells. A fireplace is more than just a place to dispose of unpaid parking tickets when it’s framed with intricate, geometric patterns laid with coarse rocks or bottle caps.
A working mosaic artist herself, she has taught at the University of Richmond, among other institutions. In the decade since she co-founded the Crossroads Art Center, the 20,000-square-foot space has showcased work from emerging and established Mid-Atlantic artists. Ranked as one of the top independent galleries in Richmond by Style Weekly magazine, the venue hosts special exhibitions and displays pieces from more than 225 artists. Showcases are coupled with classes for students aged 5 through adult, and span painting, drawing, and jewelry-making along with less-common crafts such as calligraphy, shell art, and house carving.
