GALLERY WANTS TO SELL PRINTS OF YOUR WORK - February 1, 2009
We want to make interesting, significant, quality, contemporary art (specializing in limited editions of contemporary photographic, digital, and print-based works on paper) more accessible by making it more affordable. We are able to do this by selling the work in relatively large editions (our editions are generally limited to 500). In essence we have inverted the conventional and more exclusive art world formula of high prices for small editions or unique objects (needless to say prohibitive for most). By taking away the " exclusivity" factor we believe good contemporary art can be within reach!
