Jerry's Artarama HoustonArtist Supply DonationNote from Daniel at Jerry's Artarama Houston: If you're a local houston artist, and you've lost your tools (canvas, easel paint brushes etc), your works (I got water in my storage unit) or workspace, please let me know.
Im asking for a name, short bio, link to artist website, or a photo of the type of work you do along with a brief note about what you're in need of. Please email that to Houston@jerrysartarama.com
For those that don't know me, I'm the manager of Jerry's Artarama here in Houston. I've been in touch with my company as well as several manufacturers and industry organizations, that are looking for ways to help and support us all. The more I know, the faster we can work to help get houston artists back in business.
