Abstract: The aim of the research is to find out how respondents comprehend the concept of cra sman and folk artist and what main criteria define these two groups and their activities. There are following objectives to achieve these aims: to systemize the data of field work, to determine if respondents understand cra smen and folk artists synonymously and how qualitatively different these people groups are; to reveal how the social status of cra sman and folk artist is defined, activities (profession), made goods, relationships with creation and tradition; to compare the conceptions of the respondents who are indirectly related to cra s and folk art with the conceptions of the members of the Lithuanian Folk Art Association. The object of research – the conception of the activities of cra smen and folk artists. The basis of study is field work performed during 2005–2009 in the ethnographic area of Aukštaitija and Suvalkija aiming to determine how respondents comprehend the concepts of craftsmen and folk artists, what meanings and content are aYached to them. It has been revealed that most of the respondents (93,3%) perceived cra smen and folk artists as two qualitatively different groups of people. The diversities between cra smen and folk artists most o en were shown through the comparison of certain aspects of their activities and creative work. The respondents commonly used opposites to reveal the diversities between cra sman and folk artist such as work/hobby, commerce/creation, performer/creator, prints/unique hand made goods, practical household goods/impractical decorative hand made goods. The aims and initiatives of cra smen and folk artists are perceived differently – a cra sman produces because he strives to sell and make a profit, whereas a folk artist looks for self-realization through this creative work.[...]
