Handcrafted Art Traditions

From Georgia Wier --

We at Handcrafted Art Traditions are now into our 2nd year as an online gallery of folk and traditional arts made in the American West. For the artists, this gallery provides an opportunity to sell their work beyond their immediate regions and regular clientele. We function mainly as an online gallery but are seeking "real world" opportunities to introduce the work to the public. Please let me know if you have ideas of appropriate festivals or other temporary exhibit/sales venues.

Prices range from about $9 for some of the papercut ornaments by Judith Meyers of Colorado ( to $265 for handwoven rugs in the style of saddle blankets by Linda Morton-Keithley of Idaho (

Our artists new in 2013 are Linda Morton-Keithley and Maria and Victor Godines of the Warm Springs Reservation in Oregon (

One more thing--I've recently bitten the bullet and started a facebook page, so I'll appreciate your "likes":

Handcrafted Art Traditions has welcomed several new artists in 2014 and 2015. Most recently, we've added pillows with their covers woven in the Zapotec rug tradition by Francisco and Laura Bautista of Oregon and dolls made by Native Alaskan artists Ursula Paniyak-Irwin, Susie Nayamin, Sophie Charlie, and Annie Hurlbut. It's very rewarding to promote the work of our diverse and accomplished group of folk and traditional artists from Western states.
Recently I switched our website from one platform to another. Besides listing our items under the artists' names, I got to divide our catalog into categories like "Your Home" and "Rainbow Collection." I hope it proves more user-friendly than the previous set-up. The address:
