* Definitions / Explanation of "fine arts and crafts" and "buy/sell"
Fine Arts - Fine art typically includes painting, sculpture, architecture, music, poetry, dancing, and drama if you wander around the Internet looking at meanings. We focus on art that can be displayed in galleries, museums and at higher end festivals. We may ask local musicians or dancers, or even possibly theater groups to join us at one of our shows, but generally there probably wouldn't be much benefit in membership for those genre artists, even though we love 'em all!
One definition we found on the Internet state that fine art is "art produced or intended primarily for beauty rather than utility" and "any of the art forms, such as sculpture, painting or music, used to create such art".
Fine Crafts - Original crafts that are of high quality, suitable for showing in a gallery, museum or at higher end festivals. Not mass produced.
Buy/Sell - Manufactured items purchased, possibly touched up, embelished, or added to or combined in some manner, then re-sold. Not-original, not made from scratch. Often mass produced.
