Gift Guide: 24 Artworks

It’s true that art is personal, but if you know somebody well, you should still be able to choose a piece of art that suits him or her. A pretty landscape, a funky abstract, a minimalist still life, a furry little animal. There are a number of subjects and price points for artwork as gifts.

ARTmonday: 22 Original Artworks Under $500 from Saatchi Online

Not long ago I discovered the art site Saatchi Online. It’s amazing. I don’t know what took me so long to find it—it was launched in 2006 by the Saatchi Gallery in London. The site has many, many pieces of contemporary art across mediums and price ranges. Artists sell original artwork, as well as prints, so even if you love a pricey work, you can still acquire it in that form.

ARTmonday: 17 Artworks from Paddle8

Paddle 8 is an online art marketplace that partners with galleries, art fairs, foundations, and museums to offer a curated selection of artwork and content surrounding it. The site launched in April of last year, though it wasn’t really on my radar until co-founder Alexander Gilkes emailed me this past winter to say they had secured substantial VC funding. Tons of interesting galleries from across the globe, including Brooklyn, Mexico City, Vienna, Helsinki, Istanbul, New Delhi, and Sao Paulo  are represented, as well as art fairs, like Nada Miami Beach and The Armory Show Piers 92 & 94. There’s a lot to look at. Last night I went through just one section, Paddle8 For Good, a new initiative that supports select non-profit arts with unique and collaborative projects. Here’s what I turned up.
