Layaway Days: Art collecting on a Budget
Ravi Zupa's latest show at Black Book Gallery, opens this Friday. 'The Place Where There Is No Darkness" contains a large body of Ravi's recent prints, drawings, and sculptures. For $200, collectors can choose from one of his small, ink/mixed media pieces. Each piece is affixed to a wood backing. As of this post, the pieces below are still available for purchase. Other price points occur between $600-$3500.
Michael Reeder has teamed up with Uncommon Editions, to release their inaugural screen print. 'Rotting As One' is a 15-color silkscreen print and is limited to 60 copies. The print measures 24" x 30" and is a combination of two separate oil paintings. The price hasn't been released, but I'd imagine the print would cost between $200-300, although it's anybody's guess. The print will be released on November 3rd.
