"One of my main goals is to become an even more integral part of this city {New Orleans} and to connect more with the arts community," says artist and jeweler Megan Victoria of Jupiter Lala.

Inspired by the curiosity and wonder of the natural world, painter and jeweler Megan Victoria is quickly gaining fans throughout the city for her unique jeweled creations. Her jewelry line Jupiter Lala was recently selected to sell in the Ogden Museum of Southern Art’s gift shop and will additionally be available at the New Orleans Arts Market on the last Saturday of each month.

Each piece of Megan’s art and jewelry tells a story—a common theme to most treasures found in New Orleans. Whether it is the moonlit stars shining over the bayou or the stealthy fox peering along the Southern oaks, a little bit of New Orleans lives in each piece. The intricate narrative and delicacy of each piece has earned Jupiter Lala a sought-after spot in the monthly Arts Market of New Orleans.

Beginning in September of 2009, the Arts Market of New Orleans has become a monthly must-see for the city and continues to bring in shoppers and admirers alike from near and far. Presented by the Arts Council of New Orleans, the market is an open-air festival of creativity held the last Saturday of every month in Palmer Park. The Arts Market of New Orleans is a free event featuring local artists, live music showcasing New Orleans unique musical heritage, food and beverage booths, and a Kids Tent with children's performance and crafts.

The works featured at the Arts Market range from painting, photography, ceramics, glass, jewelry, wood and printmaking, plus a little lagniappe including handmade clothing, soaps and other delights. All wares chosen are collectively handmade, affordable art from local and regional artists and artisans. Approximately 75 to 135 talented artists are chosen out of the many hopefuls who apply to show every year.

Recently selected by New Orleans Magazine for the 2013 People to Watch feature, Megan said her main goal for the horizon is “to become an even more integral part of this city and to connect more with the arts community.” Artistry is in Megan’s roots, which truly helps her find a home in the New Orleans arts community with her jewelry making and love for painting as well.

To see the expansive work of Megan Victoria firsthand, be sure to visit the Ogden Museum’s gift shop or her first showing at the New Orleans Arts Market this Saturday, August 31 at Palmer Park. Jupiter Lala collections are also available online at http://www.jupiterlala.com.
