Have I got your answers... My uber-stylish friend, Kate Allen (who happens to be the Fashion Editor for PaperCity Magazine) turned me onto this super cool website - 20X200 As they put it - As we see it, there are a lot of people out there who want to sell their art and a lot of people who'd like to buy it. They just have a hard time finding each other.
The concept is Jen Bekman's, who made a name for herself supporting budding artists and collectors. Each week, two items are introduced - one on paper and one photo, but in limited quantities. 200 of each sell for a mere twenty bucks! Then 20 copies of each in a larger size sell for $200 and then 2 ginormous versions sell for about $2000. Truth be told, I don't think they are really 'ginormous', but large in stature, none the less. It's a limited edition piece of art on the cheap!
I love seeing the world through the lens and through other people's lenses - figuratively and literally. You can even scroll back and see what pieces have sold in the previous weeks and months and sometimes if you find a piece you like, it just still might be available - lucky you!
I am off to jump on a plane to visit some of my most favorite people who live in the wondrous locale of Vail, Colorado - Edwards to be exact. Nothing like a little Spring Break for someone who hasn't technically been privy to one in almost ten years... I will show you Colorado through my lenses upon my return.
Happy Bunny Hop,
