Chances are that the .art file was created by using AOL. You will need to convert the images to something less proprietary. Here are two good articles about doing this:

Open Windows Internet Explorer
Select FILE then OPEN
Set the File type to search for to .art
Find the .art file you downloaded and open that file.
The .art file will open in Windows Internet Explorer.
Now save the file BUT on the Save window select File type and save as .bmp

From there you can convert the .bmp to a .jpg file with a graphics program like Irfanview or Windows Paint program found normally Start> Accessories> Paint
