The Artists’ Attic Showcase and Marketplace
Showcase or sell your art here.
The power of art is that it springs from the soul and can capture and often illuminate a universal truth about life. The arts can bring people together and is a field of rich entertainment, participation, collaboration and study for those interested in all its myriad facets.
The Artist’s Attic showcases the artists’ inspirational stories behind their work as well as the art itself. We support artists in all categories of creativity be it poetry, music, pottery, fine art, photography, sculpture, etc.. We discover and share their intriguing stories behind the art, display the art, and if the art is for sale, even connect the purchaser with the artist.

The artist keeps all copyrights unless given to the purchaser. If the artist is selling her/his work, we’ll also include the price. If someone is interested in purchasing a piece of art, the purchaser will contact the IFGT and we will put the purchaser and artist in contact with one another directly. All purchases will be made directly with the artist.
The Artists’ Attic Program gives artists the ability to:
- tell their stories about the inspiration that motivated their work
- share the process they use to connect with their higher consciousness which ignites their inspiration
- discuss how they implement or bring into the physical world that higher consciousness of inspiration
- exposure their art to the world
- sell their work
- cultivate art appreciation
A quote from Jean Vanier and her book, Community and Growth, sets an important tone for our arts program:
“One of the signs of life in a community is the creation of links with others. An inward-looking community will die of suffocation. Living communities are linked to others, making up a huge reservoir of love for the world. It is a sign of maturity for a community to bind itself in friendship with others; it knows its own destiny, so doesn’t need to make comparisons. It loves even the differences which distinguish it, because each community has its own gifts which must flourish. These communities are complimentary; they need each other.” ~ Jean Vanier ~
