Tuesday Under Ten: Katherine Duclos

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: the wonderful artist Katherine Duclos is offering this piece for $325 and giving a portion of the proceeds to refugee relief and a family center in Vancouver (where she lives). It’s a work on paper mounted to panel, and the sides are painted with gold mica. Love it! Please shoot me a note if you’re interested, and I’m happy to put you in touch with Kate!

Tuesday Under Ten: Diana Arge

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: Over the weekend, I did the rounds for Gowanus Open Studios. One of my favorite things I saw was this beauty by Diana Arge. It’s composed of nine separate panels, so it can be rearranged to form different patterns. How fun is that? If you like it, please get in touch because it’s truly affordable, and I would love to find it a forever home!

Tuesday Under Ten: Ian Ruhter

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K.
