buy some damn art

by Kate Pruitt

I’m thrilled with the way the internet is changing the face of art collecting. Artists have the ability to reach a much broader audience, collaborate across vast distances, and exert more control over the sale of their work; and we as viewers and consumers can be private patrons of artists we love, and cultivate our own collections without spending a fortune. I’m thrilled to announce another step in this direction: a new site created by Kate Singleton of Art Hound called Buy Some Damn Art.

Buy Some Damn Art is essentially a rotating online art show that features a small curated collection of original art at affordable prices. Every Tuesday a new selection of six pieces by one or two artists will appear on the site. The works are priced from $200 to $500, and are original works (not reprints). I am so excited to see how the site develops, and hopefully I can add a few amazing pieces to my own small art collection. —Kate
