AmericanStyle is a full-color, quarterly consumer magazine focused on contemporary craft, craft collectors and the artists who create studio craft art. Launched in 1994 by The Rosen Group, AmericanStyle provides art lovers with valuable collecting, interior design and display ideas, focusing on everything from designer jewelry and art glass to collectible teapots, art furniture and sculptural ceramics. Those who travel with the arts in mind will find hundreds of art festivals, gallery exhibitions and museum events in the Datebook listings, Datebook Previews and Arts Travel sections.
With every issue, readers explore eclectic lifestyles of artists, elegant homes of craft collectors and features about “the art of creative living.” City Arts Tours and small Arts Walks in AmericanStyle promote awareness of the economic and aesthetic contributions that art and craft bring to our homes and communities. Each year, cities compete to be included in AmericanStyle’s Top 25 Arts Destinations edition.
