If you're looking for a way to occupy time indoors, puzzles are a great option. But puzzles featuring art by talented women artists that you'll actually want to frame after completing? That's even better.

Woman-founded brand Jiggy sells puzzles featuring art prints by women artists, and you'll actually want to hang them in your home. Prioritizing bold colors and vibrant mot ifs, the puzzle brand was created to shake up the jigsaw industry after founder Kaitlyn Marcotte was uninspired by selections for millennial and Gen Z puzzle enthusiasts.

"All the options were super cheesy stock photography, watercolor animals and landscapes and stuff," Marcotte tells Forbes.

The art featured on Jiggy puzzles is created by emerging women artists and feature everything from florals to surrealist designs. The puzzles are either 450 or 800 pieces, depending on the artwork chosen. They cost between $40–$48, which is a pretty solid price for something that will both decorate and entertain.

Unlike puzzles that you may complete and then dissemble to shove back in the box, Jiggy puzzles can be tr eated like art prints. Each comes with a tube of clear puzzle glue to preserve your creation for framing.

With the popularity of puzzles increasing with social distancing measures, Jiggy also created an Originals collection that features one-of-a-kind artwork by NYC artists. That's right, these aren't prints. The artists actually paint, draw and create with the puzzle pieces as their canvas. Though these pieces start at $150, proceeds for the original works go toward the artist and Covid-19 relief.

History of Art Timeline

The historical past of art is usually told as a chronology of masterpieces created during each civilization. It can thus be framed as a narrative of high culture, epitomized by the Wonders of the World. On any other hand, vernacular art expressions can even be integrated into art historic narratives, called folk arts or craft. The more intently that an art historian engages with these latter sorts of low culture, the much more likely it is that they will determine their work as analyzing visual culture or cloth culture, or as contributing to fields associated with art historical past, akin to anthropology or archaeology. In the latter cases, art gadgets may be called archeological artifacts. Surviving art from this era comprises small carvings in stone or bone and cave painting. The first traces of human-made gadgets appeared in southern Africa, the Western Mediterranean, Central and Eastern Europe Adriatic Sea, Siberia Baikal Lake, India, and Australia. These first traces are general…

How to Show Art Work when the Gallery Says No Thanks

There are places in the town where you live where you can show your artwork when the big gallery you solicited said, "No, thanks."
Other artists may need to find venues other than galleries to show their artworks as well. Visual artists living in art-rich communities where there is a lot of local competition will need to get creative about display opportunities.

Or on the other hand, in towns without large art venues, it is important for artists to find smaller and less obvious places to show your art.

How to Show Art Work When The Gallery Says No Thanks

1. Show Where You Go

The most successful approach to finding a place in your town to display your artwork is to solicit a place that you go to frequently. Make a list of all the places you go to each day, each week, and each month.

Make a special trip, or the next time you visit note if the establishment currently exhibits any artwork, if it is local, and if it is for sale.

Also note if they have available wall space where a…

Book review (nonfiction): Form or function? In the history of poster art, the two sides are constantly at war

“Who takes the eye takes all,” said Mary Lowndes of the Artists’ Suffrage League in the early 1900s, neatly summarizing the need for striking graphics on the banners that suffragists were making for their marches. Lowndes’ statement could serve as the motto for all those who attempt to persuade by visual means, be they propagandists for political parties or advertisers selling soap. “The Poster,” edited by Gill Saunders and Margaret Timmers of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, is a beautiful and entertaining account of the history of the medium, illustrated with examples drawn from the museum’s extensive collection.While handbill-sized fliers affixed to surfaces had long been in existence, it was the development of the large-scale color lithographic technique, with images composed of several pieces that could be pasted together into one picture, that made possible the explosion of graphic media campaigns in the 19th century. The first-rate artists who turned th…
