Learn How to Create & Successfully Market Original Art & Craft

Support the Arts!
Folk art by Barbara Thibodeaux

There are many ways to show support for the arts, but one of the best is to purchase exceptional handmade work for yourself, or as special gifts for family & friends, from living breathing artists and craftspeople. You can begin your journey here at our extensive listing of professional [Artists & Craftspeople].

When you purchase direct from their studios, you'll be getting top quality selections that will stand the test of time. Continue scrolling for some other suggestions for finding original art & craft...


  • Bookmark our "cyber" gallery and stop back often -- we regularly add [new exhibitors] with exciting new work for your viewing!  If you are using Internet Explorer, all you have to do is click this link to immediately [BOOKMARK JOLAF]. If you are using Netscape, then press Ctrl + D on Windows (Command + D for Macs).


  • Visit local galleries... Most communities have local art & craft galleries that showcase the work of artisans from your own area, and from around the country. If you are not sure how to find a gallery, here is a suggestion:

    Using the Ixquick search box below, type the name of your town after the plus (+) symbol. For example, "art gallery + Richmond". If you live in a town with a name that is also found in other places, then add your state to the search query: "art gallery + Richmond + Virginia". Try the same queries at the second search box.


  • Tell a friend about our online arts & crafts festival... If you know other artlovers, please use our [EZ-Mailform] to spread the word about JOLAF!


  • Attend local art festivals... There are many hundreds of art & craft shows being held every year, so almost certainly there is one reasonably close to you. This gives you the opportunity to meet the artists and see their work first hand.

    If you are not sure when or where the shows are held in your area, here are some websites to help:
