About Us

Jack Arthur is a social networking platform built for artists and art enthusiasts to share, discuss, learn, talk, buy and sell original artwork. Our mission is to connect the world with art.

Founded in 2008 by John McNamara, first as an art gallery in Atlanta under the name Jack Art Gallery, and now as the Jack Arthur network, our goal is to reach every artist and every enthusiast, and to provide a safe, fun platform for artists and art enthusiasts to meet new friends and share new art.

As an artist, art collector and gallery owner, John McNamara understood the needs of both the artist and the buyer, and for years, talked with artists and buyers to better understand their pain points in buying/selling art.  Those conversations lead to lots of research and ultimately the Jack Arthur network.
