Great Idea For Art Lovers!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Center
Original, one-of-a-kind art can be pricey.  Instead, go to UGallery.com and etsy.com, which sell the work of recent art school grads and budding artists at reasonable prices.

Kristin,

Wow, thanks so much. We are in the process of redecorating our office and the art budget was a trouble spot. I just went on Etsy and love it.

I like it! What a great way for young, just starting out artists to sell some of their artwork... and for us to save some money too.

Kristin...I opened my own office just over a year ago. My building is historic and I have 16' ceilings.  I wasn't sure what to do about artwork because of so much wall space to cover.  So...I have a gallery.  I have 7 photographers, 1 artist and 1 potter that have their work displayed on my walls.  I love it, it lets the artists promote their products and it didn't cost me anything.

Kristin, thanks for this post. That's a great idea, and I think people SHOULD help the young starving artists who just graduated.  Art school, like most post-secondary, doesn't come cheap with supplies and all - something should be done about that.  Best to you in February, Jark.
