Tuesday Under Ten: Madonna NYC'83 by Richard Corman

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: If you were a kid in the 80s, I'm certain you'll think these Richard Corman shots of Madonna from 1983 are as amazing as I do. The jelly bracelets! The ripped jeans! This Madonna is still my prototype for cool 35 years later. Shot in New York a month after the Madonna album came out, there are great glimpses of gritty 80s NYC, as well. Each image is printed in four sizes and priced between $2,750 and $9,500 depending on size. Available through July 5 - please get in touch if you're interested!

Tuesday Under Ten: Sara Jones

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: I have not been able to stop thinking about this new piece by Sara Jones.

Tuesday Under Ten: Adam Silverman

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: I'm looking forward to this crazy week of art fairs in New York, and I've been busily browsing images for pieces I want to see in person for my clients. Tomorrow I start at the Armory Show Preview. Unlike some of the so-called satellite fairs, the Armory Show is "blue chip," and there isn't much for under $10,000, but I love this affordable table-top sculpture by Adam Silverman that will be exhibited by Philip Martin Gallery. Stay tuned for more images from all of the fairs!

Tuesday Under Ten: Grant Falardeau

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: when I browsed images of Grant Falardeau's current show at Hilde Gallery in Los Angeles, I just couldn't get this one out of my head. Is it because it reminds me a little of a George Condo sculpture, but with an affordable price tag... maybe! But is that a bad reason? If you're interested in seeing more, please get in touch!
