Jerry's Going Green

For those of you who have been to our store recently, you've probably noticed that we have signs announcing we are Going Green! This is refering to the fact that we are no longer mailing our flyers and we are encouraging everyone to join our e-mail list. However, this is not the only way we are doing our part to reduce, reuse, recycle. The dragon you see here is made ENTIRELY from Jerry's cardboard and palettes from our deliveries. This is going to be a stage for the upcoming South By Southwest Music Festival at the Monofonus Studio. Jerry's Artarama is a big fan of this art collective and we thank you for putting our cardboard and palettes to such good use. Check out Monofonus' website: and be sure to stop by there to see great bands such as The Roller and Microfiche.

Book Binding Class

We had a great turn out for Wendy Davis' Book Binding class this past Saturday March 7th. In only three hours all 18 students left with a beautiful hand-made book. Thank You Wendy for such an informative and inspiring class. This was the first time that Jerry's hosted a class of this size and it was a learning experience for us all. Please post comments about what worked or didn't work about the set up in the middle of the store. Thanks to all that made this happen!

Welcome to the Austin Jerry's Blog!

Not only do we have a lot of fun in our store, but there is always a lot going on. We've decided to start a blog so we can share with you what we are all about. Postings will vary from documenting our demos, customer & staff artwork, products we are excited about, art tips and more. Check in with us regularly and we hope you take the time to comment.
Thanks for being a part of the Jerry's Artarama family!
