Welcome to the Jerry's Artarama of Connecticut on-line store!
We are pleased to now provide our artist community with a wide selection of fine art materials and framing supplies online, just as we have done at our store since 1993!
We've broke out from the walls of our West Hartford, Connecticut retail store to offer our customers the ease and convenience of shopping on-line while still experiencing the benefits of SHOPPING LOCALLY; personal attention, knowledgeable staff of artists, fast, courteous service. You can have peace of mind knowing you are supporting a LOCAL family owned business that employs LOCAL artists & students while also giving back to the LOCAL Art community it resides in.
Jerry's Artarama of Connecticut contributes to the arts locally through scholarship award programs and juried art show participation to the many educational art institutions and organizations in our area.
Founded in 1993, Jerry's Artarama of Connecticut was the vision of our owner, Jeffrey Shoham. After growing up in the industry working in a family business, he ventured out into the retail environment. He saw a need in the Hartford area because serious artists were either going to New York City or Boston to buy a better selection of art supplies. As the business grew, Jeff enlisted the talents of Chet Terry, another life-long member of the art industry. Chet is now General Manager. The family tradition continues with Jeff’s son, Andrew “AJ” Shoham, providing hands-on service and dedication that has made us the artists’ choice in our area.
Our family owned company’s goal is to continue to offer our customers the most convenient and secure means of purchasing brand name art supplies at an excellent value, while providing superior product information and individual support on-line--just as if they were shopping in our store.
If you would like to reach us by phone please dial 860.232.0073. We are available Monday through Saturday, 9:30am through 6:00pm EST. Otherwise, our web site offers fully interactive, secure ordering features, and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We would like to hear from you if you have a question or would like to make any comments or suggestions. You and your needs are very important to us.
Though our on-line store offers our customers a broad choice, we will always be expanding the product line in order to fulfill the needs of today’s modern artists. Please email or call if there is a product you need but is not offered on-line. If it is available, we will do everything possible to get it for you.
SERVICE, SELECTION, PRICE, ALONG WITH OUR KNOWLEDGEABLE STAFF, IS WHAT HAS ALLOWED US TO EARN YOUR PATRONAGE AND SUPPORT OVER THE YEARS. OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU IS TO OFFER THESE SAME QUALITIES WHEN YOU SHOP LOCALLY AT OUR ON-LINE STORE.
