The Working Proof


(Photo from Lonny, vol. 3.)
I'm a firm believer in affordable art-- I don't think something needs to be exclusive or expensive to be beautiful or to be called artwork. 

I think everyone reading this blog knows about 20x200.  Every Tuesday (that means today!) and Wednesday at 2pm, limited-edition art and photographs are put up for sale at only $20.  I love 20x200 because it showcases so many different styles of art.

Cotton Field, Mississippi, by Shuli Hallak, available at 20x200.
Contact High, by Jeff Bridges.  Available at 20x200. This looks like swirly lollipops to me!  It's in the kitchen photo I posted at the top of this post.

Another new-to-me source for affordable artwork is The Working Proof.  It's not as large as 20x200, but it has some very nice pieces.  Plus, the proceeds from the sale of artwork go to charity, so it's all for a good cause.  I really like this mixed media piece by Susan Schwake. 

On the Rocks, by Susan Schwake.

The blackbirds look so nice again the peachy-pink rocks.
What are your favorite sources for affordable artwork?
