Tuesday Under Ten: Aaron Siskind

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: One of my favorite events of the year is the Klotz Gallery Holiday Sale. Now in its 39th year, this is a fantastic opportunity to pick up holiday presents or black and white photography for a gallery wall. Everything is priced under $10,000, and there are pieces in the under $5,000, $1,000, $500, and $100 categories, too. This little guy was Aaron Siskin's 1960 Christmas Card, and it should feel free to hop right on my wall!

Tuesday Under Ten: Nora​ ​Griffin

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: I unfortunately cannot make it to Miami for the art fairs that surround Art Basel Miami this week, but I'm following closely from home! At the NADA Fair (New Art Dealers Alliance), there's tons of great under $10,000 material including this beauty by Nora Griffin exhibited by Fierman Gallery.

Gallery Round Up: November/December

Uptown, downtown, and in between -- here are some of my favorites currently on view at New York galleries. I want to add that the Sam Gilliam show at Mnuchin Gallery is staggeringly beautiful. I'm usually in and out of galleries in a few minutes, but I couldn't tear myself away from these. Definitely worth a visit if you're on the Upper East Side!

Tuesday Under Ten: Pat Steir

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. With the big fall auctions this week, I've been thinking a lot about value! One of the best ways to get a lot of art-bang for your buck is to look at editioned prints by well-known artists. For many artists, editions are an important part of their body of work even though the cost is usually far less than that of unique pieces.  Pat Steir is a great example. Prices have skyrocketed recently for her paintings, but her editioned work remains in the under $10,000 category. What's even better is that for a bit more (though not quite under $10K), you can buy a unique Pat Steir monoprint with a layer of paint that is hand applied by the artist using the same technique she uses on her paintings!

IFPDA Print Fair 2017

I attended the preview of the IFPDA Print Fair last night. The fair moved this year from its traditional location at the Park Avenue Armory to the Javitz Center. The Javitz Center is light, airy, and modern, where the Armory is elegant and historical, but everyone I spoke with seemed content with the new location. Here are a few of my favorites!

Tuesday Under Ten: JM Rizzi

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: I am so into the black and white line portraits that are part of JM Rizzi's current show at Chesterfield Gallery. A little bit street art, a little bit Picasso; these large ink on canvas pieces feel fresh and bold to me. If you're interested in taking a look in person, please let me know!

Tuesday Under Ten: Liz Robb

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: I am infatuated with Liz Robb's soft sculpture. They're gorgeous, and it's so interesting to follow her travels on Instagram to watch her experiment with natural materials and dyes. If you're interested in considering a piece by Liz for your home, please send me a note!

Tuesday Under Ten: Daniel Heidkamp

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: The Daniel Heidkamp show at Pace Prints in Chelsea is super fun! Showing skylines and city scenes, each form is carefully composed from fluorescent paper cut outs, and most of the work in the exhibition is in the under $10,000 category. Love it!

Tuesday Under Ten: Oeuffice

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: If you can't get enough of that Ettore Sottsass postmodernism (and if you haven't seen the awesome show at Met Breuer, you should!), take home an Oeuffice object today! I love these limited edition inlaid ziggurats that stand about 20 inches tall. Super chic!
