Prove It! The Color White

Prove It Art Marketing Videos

Prove It!

Different shades of white are all around us in the paint world, but do we really need that much variety? Find out in this monochromatic episode of Prove It!, where Mikey G. will try to answer the question, "Is white really just one color?" Come along with Mikey on a visit to his local Jerry's Artarama art supply store as he searches to see how much white is available, then rejoin him in the studio as he mixes colors to determine firsthand the features and benefits of each different hue!

Please enjoy this Prove It! video and let us know what you think in the comments below!

What do you think? Is the color white really as multi-faceted as Mikey thinks? Mike used four different whites from the Charvin Extra Fine Oil Colors line; have you had any experiences with other lines of paint? Tell us about it in the comments below!

Dryden Art and Canvas Keepers - Organization for Artists

The ultimate organizer for studios, classrooms, galleries, museums and more!

Disorganized artists, rejoice! After a long wait, the new Dryden Art and Canvas Keepers are finally here — so it's time to get those half-finished paintings and raw canvas off the ground and into one of these unique new art storage units! (Read on below to find out how you could win one for yourself!)

Designed by Mack Dryden for his artist wife Teri, the Dryden Art and Canvas Keepers were developed to solve the artist's age-old problem of "What do I do with all this stuff??" We've all been there — our studios are full of canvas, drawing pads, boards and more, whether fresh and unpainted, finished or in progress — and organization is a nightmare. But no longer! These innovative storage units are the perfect solution for keeping all our canvases, frames and art safe, organized and accessible.

Made from durable, lightweight enameled steel, Dryden Art and Canvas Keepers are available in two models: the larger Floor Model with casters and a handle for easy mobility, and the smaller Table Model that includes a wall mount for even more storage possibilities. Capable of storing anything from canvas and board to framed art, drawing pads, panels, mat board — just about anything that is flat and rigid — the vertical storage design of the Art and Canvas Keepers means that anything placed within them can be easily accessed without disarranging everything else. Not to mention, the Table Model can be quickly removed from the wall mount and placed within a car for easy transport of art to classes, fairs and shows!

Curious about this revolutionary art supplies organizer? Watch the video below from Mack and Teri Dryden to learn more!

Of course, here at Jerry's Artarama we have a ton of other storage solutions for the organizationally-challenged artist. Whether you're looking for art studio furniture, taborets, print racks, archival storage and more, we've got everything you need to turn your cluttered studio into an organization miracle in no time! In fact, we're running a contest to promote exactly that: the Sloppy Studio Contest!

Click on the image above for details on how you can win a new Dryden Art and Canvas Keeper or more prizes simply by tidying up your artistic space! Starting today, March 14th, and running through April 22nd, this contest is your chance to redo your entire studio. Take some before and after pics and get a head start on your spring cleaning — and tell us all about it in the comments below!

This just in! Mungyo Gallery Handmade Pastels now in stock!

Open stock handmade soft pastels for professional artists!

Let the fanfare begin! After months of waiting and biting our fingernails, new Mungyo Gallery Handmade Soft Pastels are finally in stock! And just in time for plein air painting season, as well. So why not grab a couple and get outside to paint?

Mungyo Gallery Handmade Soft Pastels are just that: handmade. Made from a blend of finely ground pigments and kaolin clay, they are hand-rolled into the classic European-style, cigar-like shape. Since they are hand-rolled, less binder is needed to keep the pigments together, so Gallery Handmade Pastels' consistency is softer and smoother than other soft pastels. Plus, the pigment strength gives the colors a brilliance and vibrancy that is second to none!


Are you already a fan of Mungyo Gallery Pastels? The new Handmade pastels just happen to match perfectly with the Gallery Extra-Fine Soft Pastels, as well, making them great for layering over the somewhat harder Extra-Fine pastels. We've had the Handmade sets in stock for a while now, so if you're already a fan, now you can replace your favorite colors with the new open stock! New to the line as a whole? Pick up a Gallery Handmade Soft Pastel set today, and see what all the fuss is about!

Can you see why we're excited? 200 colors of luscious, vibrant open stock pastels are freshly unpacked in our warehouse, just waiting to be painted with! And perhaps the best part is the price: this spring, it'll be easy to stock up on all your favorite pastel colors for the upcoming plein air painting season!
