So What's inside? We are proud to have Artists of all different ages, skill sets, experience, training, style, and backgrounds in our Artist Collective! Our featured Artists provide us with a fun selection of art to send out to you every month, it will feel like getting a present from them every time you get a box. You will always get original artwork by independent artists. Sizes, mediums, and quantities of art varies. You could get: a painting, mini sculptures, signed art prints, fiber arts, a drawing, ACEO's/ATC's (artist card editions & originals/artist trading cards), and more! We always send family friendly art (we stay away from sending works that are political/religious/sexual). All the art we send is visual arts for display. Sometimes our artists even include fun free gifts for you! Each time you get your box you get to decide: will you keep the art or spread some more art love and gift it to somebody special. Once you subscribe, just sit back and enjoy supporting the arts!

“I think this is a brilliant, easy and affordable way for people to support local artists. Plus it’s fun to get a package of art in the mail every month! I suggest thinking ‘outside the box’ when displaying your art collection. The small-scale size is perfect to display your new artwork on bookshelves, windowsills and coffee tables. I have even turned my son’s medicine cabinet into a little art gallery. You never know what you are going to get, so if any art doesn’t match your home or office, just save it for creative re-gifting. I like to bring a bottle of wine and a small piece of art as a great housewarming or host/hostess gift at parties.” -Robin Slonina, Skin City Body Painting & Skin Wars

"This 6x6 stretched canvas is GORGEOUS! ...This mandala from Ryan Designs is intricate and beautiful and draped against the backdrop of a "nebular" looking expanse. It's almost a silent reminder of how complex all life really is. Gorgeous.
