ARTmonday: 40 Artworks at the SMFA Art Sale 2015

The SMFA Art Sale 2015 opens to the public tomorrow morning. I attended the Medici Night party last night and had a great time browsing art and catching up with artists, acquaintances, and friends. With my new curation business underway, I was more conscientious about photographing not just the art but the signage as well. I missed a few, but for the most part am able to identify most of the pieces.

I stuck to a tighter budget this year, but came home with two pieces I love, which I can definitely classify as affordable artwork. Both are photographs by current SMFA students and I plan on hanging them together. I included one of them below. See if you can guess which one it is.

As always, proceeds from the SMFA Art Sale benefits student scholarships. There are pieces by established alumni, faculty, and also current students. The arrays on the walls change throughout the day, and you can always find more in the bins. Stop by this weekend; art makes way better holiday presents than cashmere sweaters.

SMA Art Sale 2015: Thursday, November 19 (10 am–8 pm)—opening celebration from 5–8 pm;  Friday, November 20 (10 am–8 pm); Saturday, November 21 (10 am–8 pm); Sunday, November 22 (10 am–5 pm).
