It's impossible to imagine now, given the range of designer colors one can buy, that in the early 17th Century, that artists such as Caravaggio, Rembrandt, and Velazquez didn't have an affordable or stable blue to use. Ultramarine, which is extracted from lapis lazuli, was more expensive than vermilion or even gold. Artists had to cough up a princely sum to have the blue pigment imported from Afghanistan. That's never been the case at Jerry's Artarama, the 20,000-square-foot West Miami art supply emporium featuring almost anything the fledgling or seasoned creative type might ever need to succeed. At this sprawling one-stop depot, you can find everything from acrylic and oil paints in every designer shade from the world's top brands to brushes and palette knives. You'll also find canvas, stretched or in rolls and made from cotton, linen, or jute. Plus pens and markers, encaustics, ceramic and pottery supplies, water colors and pastels, airbrushing supplies, easels, portfolios, and even a custom framing shop tucked in the back. Budding Picassos can take weekend easel painting classes conducted in English, French, or Spanish for $25 a pop, not including supplies. To top it all off, Jerry's boasts the type of cut-rate prices, sometimes ranging from 50 to 75 percent off, and savings on hard-to-find items that would inspire the likes of the old masters to turn cartwheels in their graves.

It's a shame that this particular location has taken a turn to the worse, there's no merchandise on the shelves, prices has gone up more than 20% and the service plain and simple sucks. I'm not shopping here anymore, rather wait and shop online for my art supplies.


As an experienced artist I can asure you that Jerry's is the best store I've seen in the USA. Everything you can imagine you can find it here at the best prices in Miami. I used to shop at other art store like pearls, utrecht and michaels but when I found Jerry's thru the internet and that they have a store in miami that trigered my curiosity to visit the store and so glad I did. The service is great, prices and the availabity to get everything in one place for me is very important. Congrats to all the staff for the great work and to all of my friends artists, this is the place to shop for art supplies.
