What I really need in my home at the moment are a few great pieces of art on the wall to pull everything together. Check out these four online sources for great works from independent artists that won't put a dent in your pocketbook.1 20x200: Limited editions from new and emerging artists + low prices + the internet = art for everyone. That pretty much says it all.
2 The Working Proof: promotes art and social responsibility. 15% of the sale of each print is donated to a charity of the artist's choice.
3 Paperwork: all of Paperwork's independent artist archival pigment prints are produced on smooth, natural white bamboo paper.
4 Velocity Art & Design: Velocity has a great curated artwork collection from a host of talented artists who typically only sell their work on Etsy or in their own store.
Let us know if you have other favorite sources for artwork!
