10 Shops for Affordable Artwork

by Garrett Fleming

10 Shops for Affordable Art, Design*Sponge One of the most exciting home projects on my horizon is the creation of a brand-spanking-new gallery wall. The first step is already done: my special guy and I have doused the wall where it will live in a deep green hue. Our hope is this rich color will give the pieces a background that’ll help them shine. Which actual works will be shining is yet to be determined, though. There are just so many options out there, we can’t nail down which pieces to pull the trigger on. While we may not know which ones will be coming home with us, one thing is for sure: throughout the process we’ve uncovered a goldmine of art resources, and they’re all a click away.

All of the sites we came across are so fantastic, in fact, I’ve gathered 10 of them up to share with everyone today. Some are the e-commerce versions of fabulous brick-and-mortars and others support museums and charities through their sales. One thing they all have in common, however, is they’ll each help any gallery wall sing without breaking the bank. Click through to check out the entire batch. Enjoy! —Garrett

The online storefront for Stacy Anne Longenecker's shop, Leif, is full of color. Most of the pieces are abstract, and it's one of the few places where you can get an original piece for under $200. If that's a little out of your price range, check our her set of $50 prints.

Kelly Lynn Jones founded Little Paper Planes Shop in 2004 with the aim to give herself and her artistic friends a platform for selling their work. Since then the project has spawned a brick-and-mortar location in San Francisco that hosts artist lectures and workshops.
