Artists always want muses without realizing they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of old pastels and Greek yogurt. Cultivate your creativity an easier way with today's Groupon: for $48, you get $100 worth of custom framing supplies at Jerry's Artarama in Norwalk.
Jerry's enshrines treasured works in a wide variety of custom metal and imported wood frames. Deep-canvas custom frames ($46.10 for 12"x12") surround photographs and prints with a modern aura, and rustic custom wood frames ($33.54 for 12"x12") lend family photos and macaroni mosaics a sense of entitlement to a wall space. Nielsen custom aluminum frames ($17.06 for 12"x12") surround frame-worthy works with shiny or frosted colors including gold, silver, and black. Jerry's quality frames take the art of hanging art beyond such jejune measures as tacky industrial-strength sticky tack, staple-tape taple staping, and hiring long-armed men to hold your art against the wall.
At Jerry’s Artarama, resident artists draw on personal experience and channel the shop's four decades in business to help create works in nearly any medium. Shelves bravely bear the weight of multitudinous tubes of paint ranging from traditional oil paints made from 150-year-old processes, to easy-to-use acrylic pigments. Artists can wield a Mejillo TruColor palette to serve as a launching pad for paints, or take up PrismaColor colored pencils to add vivid pigmentation to sketches. For more specialized projects, customers can stock up on the store's street-art supplies and screen-printing kits.
Meanwhile, the framing professionals at Jerry’s Artarama navigate a bounty of glass, mats, mounting, and moulding options to personalize the framing of photos, watercolor landscapes, and napping bats. Frame options include the warm whorls of wooden frames as well as silver, black, or gold aluminum frames to complement any work's color scheme.
