After 14 years of meeting our mission of Connecting Americans with American Art®, we have decided to fully retire and close our online art gallery.
Our third co-founder and son Jacob, who built and maintained the award-winning website BestAmericanArts.com, has indulged us by keeping our website first rate for the last few years. However, he loves tech and creative work. His career evolved to building wonderful websites for other companies. Jacob can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Matt Kowal was still getting his fine arts degree at The Ohio State University when he started doing our photography before we launched the website on July 4, 2007. Over the years, Matt became a key player in so many roles, including working with the artisans to manage inventory, special orders and direct ships, handling email and social media marketing, and engaging daily with our wonderful customers. He is so talented and dependable, and we were lucky to have him as our go-to team member from early days to today. Matt does freelance work and can be reached at email@example.com and via Instagram @kowalabearhugs.
We thank Jacob and Matt as well as the other employees, consultants and affiliates who helped us so much along the way. Of course, we would never have launched or survived for 14 years without warm relationships with so many talented and creative American artisans who trusted us with their beautiful work and good names. For your trust, confidence and friendship over the years, Thank you!
And, to our customers, who shopped with us year after year, or even just once, Thank you! Connecting you with American art was our mission. We hope you wear your American made jewelry or use your American made home décor items with joy and pride for years to come. Please email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding previous orders, returns, etc.
