Joel D Canfield: >>wants to find online places art lovers hang out Hi Joel, I dunno. That seems kind of generic. People who *do* art hang out at places specializing in their area; quilt people hang with the quilt crowd, photobugs hang out at photo.net and a zillion other places, guitar players hang out at the local bail bond office ... I have no idea where the oil/acrylic/charcoal/watercolor/fingerpaint bespeckled folks putter about. Regional art school types may hang together locally, Taos types might be found off painting in Canyon De Chelly for example. People who *write* about art might coalesce at museum sites or specific artist/movement/oeuvre sites. On the other hand, people who *collect* art hang at eBay and/or hundreds of fine art auction site kind of places as well as more specialized places like the "Art Nouveau / Judendstil" facebook page. Tough One. Good Luck, RonL.
