This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jerry Garcia was a unique artist who both symbolized and transcended his era.  His work as lead guitarist, singer and composer for the Jerry Garcia Band and the Grateful Dead created his reputation as a superb and versatile musician. Throughout three decades, Jerry was a tireless performer who brought joy to millions of fans.  In addition to being a rock star, he was also
an industrious and introspective visual artist whose drive to express himself went well beyond playing concerts and making recordings.

Jerry Garcia created over 500 pieces of art during his lifetime.  He began drawing as a child when recovering from bouts of asthma. Years later, he studied at The California School of Fine Arts, now known as the San Francisco Art Institute, in San Francisco studying with Elmer Bischoff, and continued to paint and draw while focusing on his career as a musician.  While on the road touring, Jerry often kept a notebook for sketches, paintings, and line drawings. In addition he
explored the latest computer techniques, especially enthusiastic about using his PowerBook.

To Garcia, visual art provided another means of creativity. Jerry created nearly 500 pieces of art
between 1985 and 1995 using watercolor, gouache, pencil, ink, airbrush and digital media. During the last few years of his life Jerry had several art shows in different cities in the United States, and sold hundreds of his original works and thousands of lithographs. He often attended these shows and enjoyed meeting people who shared his interest in the visual arts.
