By all accounts, the art scene is on fire. For those who want to collect art, affordable art is red-hot. People are flocking to art fairs and small galleries, hoping to discover high caliber works for reasonable prices.
Hot Ticket: Works on Paper is an exhibition of works on paper by emerging and established artists which will offer collectors access to new art at affordable prices. Prints, drawings, and collages will be exhibited unframed, and all will be for sale for $1,100 or less.
Approximately 30 prints will be displayed by about 20 artists, with special emphasis on new work by faculty and students affiliated with art departments and studios at universities and artist workspaces throughout the region. The styles, colors, and prices will range widely, making this a key place to shop for art to collect and feature in your homes and offices.
The entire community will have the opportunity to work collaboratively on an oversize drawing which will then be made available for sale.
