Attention Installation students, class is back in session!  This week we present our second homework assignment which focuses on one of the cornerstones of our editorial philosophy- collecting.  Feel like you’re always searching the same handful of online auction houses to discover new artwork worth collecting? We conducted some research of our own and have discovered four online destinations worthy of exploration.  Here you will find the works emerging artists, artisans, and contemporary masters at affordable price points.  Your assignment is to subscribe and get lost in their digital collections.  Who knows… Maybe this weekend you will finally find that perfect piece of art to fill the stark white walls in your living space.  Report back next week and let us know how you did.


Offerings: Emerging and mid-career artists presented each week, every Thursday at 1pm EST

Price Point: $100- $2000+

The Find: Ever wanted to commision a painting? Search UGallery’s extensive artist roster, get in touch with the artist with the style you like most, discuss the details of the commision and in 6-8 weeks you have a truly cutomized piece of art of your very own.
