Art. Whether it's in the form of a napkin-doodle attached to your fridge door, a painting you were given by a grandparent, or framed illustrations you got from Etsy, we all own it (or want to), ogle it, and some of us even create it.
So maybe you can't all afford one of Picasso's animal line drawings (there's still lots of time!), or are feeling uninspired by what you're seeing online, and can't make your own (again, time!). Enter, the Affordable Art Fair. From today through April 3, more than 70 local, national, and international galleries will come together in Manhattan to showcase over one thousand pieces of art ranging from $75 to $10,000. Not only is the event an incredibly fun place to get inspiration (we're looking forward to seeing some gold-leaf covered pieces by recent graduate Delano Dunn), but it also is a great time to snag some well-priced art that may very well increase significantly in value in the next few years. If this all sounds like a lot to deal with, we get it. Lucky for you, fair director Cristina Salmastrelli gave us her best buying tips. Take note!
