There are only three prints remaining. You'll need to be quick!
Starting today, collectors and hobbyists will have a new way to purchase artwork. Biderly.com is a new, socially progressive e-commerce auction and fundraising platform. Connecting vetted sellers and charity auctions, with bidders, buyers, and donors, biderly.com provides a unique way to purchase artwork, collectibles, vintage items, handmade items, and experiences. So far, art is available from SAMO (Al Diaz) and Robert Mars, among others. This could be a great way to connect artists and collectors, with charities reaping the rewards. Check it out HERE.
Stone Cold Chris Austin has been absolutely killing it lately. You need to start following him on Instagram, if you're not already. My wife would absolutely kill for one of his crows, although all his animals are beyond superb. See more of his work HERE.
John Felix Arnold III will have two new prints available on Monday, March 19th, via House of Roulx. The three hand-finished variants of 'Grow Forward' are unbelievable. I'd expect the standard editions to be priced somewhere near $50. Click HERE to purchase.
Studio Gallery in San Francisco is known for its affordability, artist diversity, and incredible owners. Urban/Rural 2018 may be one of their best shows to date. Featuring works from Lindsey Kustusch, Nate Ross, and Greg Gandy, among others, their latest exhibition is a stunner. The show runs from March 15th-April 16th, with its opening reception on March 18th.

From Jen & Rab:
"For our next show, we're going back to our roots...the second show we ever had in the gallery was called Urban/Rural, and Brandon Smith was on the postcard (he has two pieces in the new show). Thanks to all your support the gallery has grown tremendously since those days, but we still love artwork depicting California, and so do our artists.
This year's version of Urban/Rural has work from 40 local artists, who chose to depict everything from downtown skyscrapers to empty country roads. The beaches of Pescadero appear several times in the show, and there are lots of palm trees, along with playgrounds, suburban streets and some terrific views. We hope you love this armchair tour of California as much as we do; you can preview the show here.
If you're in the neighborhood we'd love to see you at the reception on Sunday, but of course feel free to stop by anytime. (The last week of the show we'll have a special display of San Francisco landmarks made by Ms. Slevin's 3rd grade class from our local elementary school.) And if you're not nearby we hope you'll check out the show online. Let us know what you think!
Many thanks from two die-hard Californians--
Jen + Rab"
These two prints are about halfway sold. You're going to want to act quickly, as Mwanel Pierre-Louis is a cool dude and a great artist.

Art isn't purchased at big-box stores. This blog is for collectors like me, who collect on a budget.
