Cool link alert...

Recently, I have been privy to major blog buzz by several of my favorite reads regarding an art website created by NY gallery owner, Jen Bekman in 2007. Her site, 20X200, is based on the premise that there are a lot of people out there who want to sell their art and a lot of people who'd like to buy it. They just have a hard time finding one another.

I popped on the site and I must say... pure freaking genius.  In fact, above is a photo taken in my foyer with our latest 20x200 purchase!

20x200 introduces at least two new editions a week: one photo and one work on paper. Most are available in three or four sizes. When they first launched, the smallest size was reprinted in the largest batch — an edition of 200 — and sold at the lowest price — $20. Hence the name 20x200.

Every print is delivered with a numbered certificate of authenticity that is signed by the artist, the artist's bio and statement, and instructions for caring for your print.

If you haven't yet... I urge you to check them out! You can also follow the Jen Beckman Project and the new releases on Twitter and Facebook. Their blog can be found HERE.  Their Pinterest is HERE.
