Art galleries and painting.

When most people think of art galleries, they think of fancy parties with champagne and interesting finger foods. They probably also think of high priced art that most of us mere mortals simply can not afford to own, if we had the wish to spend that much on a piece of art anyway. There are plenty of places out there to buy things that are more affordable, and you can usually find something that you will love to hang in your home, and you won’t have to sell your first born to get it.


There are two local art galleries in my local mall. One is a bit more pricy than the other, but both are affordable. Though many don’t think of them in the traditional sense, they are art galleries where you can find great works of art by those who might be less known, but still have a lot of skill and can produce some wonderful pieces of art that would look good in any home or office. In fact, you may find something here that you would like better than anything else, and it won’t cost you a fortune.

The prices for these independent art galleries – that are there for those who can’t sell a painting for thousands – are often places to find up and coming artists who may one day make a splash. Imagine buying something from one of these art galleries for twenty five dollars from an unknown, only to have it shoot up in value one day when they hit the main stream. It doesn’t happen often of course, but it can happen. Don’t be afraid to go into one of these places you may find in the mall or off the side of the road. If you love art, you will be glad you did.

Even better, there are many of these types of art galleries that you can find online. Here you can find things from all over the world at many different levels of price. You do have to worry about shipping when you buy this way, but if you can’t seem to find anything locally that you love at a price you can afford, this might be the way to go. If you can’t find anything with an online art gallery, perhaps what you seek just isn’t out there. Some have artists that will do requests, or you can find them elsewhere, usually doing portraits from photographs. When you get something like that, you know your piece is truly one of a kind.
