We’ve browsed through it several times and fallen in love with several different items. The level of artistry and craftsmanship you’ll find on this site is incredible. Plus, we think there’s just something special about owning or giving art created by someone in your own community.

The variety you’ll find on is huge — everything from intricate illustrations like this by artist Greg Moody¬†to whimsical paintings of Kermit the Frog as the Mona Lisa to handmade jewelry to Razorback art to custom-made furniture. The photos will impress you. You can search for particular items by choosing various categories of art.

Hope you love the site as much as we do. Go find an incredible piece of art to give to someone you love.
