ARTmonday: Fraction Holiday Print Sale

I first learned about the photography magazine Fraction last year, when a local photographer alerted me she was participating in the Fraction Holiday Print Sale. I purchased two prints that I just recently had framed at StyleCarrot partner Framebridge (I love this framing service for simple black, white, and pale wood frames; it’s so quick and simple).

This year’s Fraction Holiday Print Sale features over 125 affordable photographs ranging in price from $30 to $600. I would say most cost $100. Each print ships directly from the artist, within five days of purchase, and he or she gets paid within 48 hours.  It’s a great way to support the arts, give a gift, or add another visual layer to your own home.

The sale ends at 8pm MST on December 31, 2017.

Justyna Przybylowska is a Vancouver-based photographer with provocative, hard-edged work in both black and white and color, with many selections available on Society6.

Her art prints start at $64. Like most of the offerings at Society6, Przybylowska’s color and black & white photography prints are available in varying sizes, framed, printed on canvas or metal,  on iPhone cases, pillows, totes, greeting cards , hoodies, and other items.

You can see Justyna Przybylowska’s most recent work on her website PRZY, which she calls an online photographic exhibit of the world through her eyes. And then there’s her Instagram feed.

Here’s a sampling of her work from Society6, plus a selfie.

ARTmonday: 12 Photos from the Fraction Holiday Print Sale

I received an email last week from local photographer Dana Mueller that  one of her prints would be available for a limited time at the 9th annual Fraction Holiday Print Sale. I loved her photo so I clicked through to see the others and it was instantly smitten. I hadn’t heard of Fraction Magazine, an online publication dedicated to fine art photography.

The Fraction Holiday Print Sale offers more than 100 prints starting at $75; most of them are about $100. Every one of them is wonderful. I limited myself to two photos—Mother Bird by Joy Christiansen Erb and Be the Light by Puspa Lohmeyer, both which arrived very quickly. (Prints ship directly from the artists.)

The prints are numbered and signed originals. If you order before this Wednesday, December 14 the site says you are likely to have it by December 24th. The sale goes through 8PM December 31st. Here are a dozen of my favorite photographs from the sale.

ARTmonday: Signs of Spring

Although it’s rather slushy in Boston, it is indeed late March and there are signs of impending springtime. Buds on the magnolia trees along Commonwealth Avenue, crocuses pushing up in front gardens, street sweeping (well actually, that was cancelled today due to the weather).

If you need a bit of a lift on this less than sunny day, how about some spring art? Here are 15 artworks that depict springtime, from birds to green trees to pastel hues.

ARTmonday: 14 Apple Artworks

Today is Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the Jewish New Year. One of the traditions Jews observe is to dip apples into honey to signify the sweetness of a new year. In celebration of the new year, here are 14 apple artworks.

Included are self portraits by two of my favorite Boston photographers (I don’t think either is Jewish), Japanese sculpture, a young Mick Jagger (not Jewish), and more traditional apple still lifes. Shana Tovah!

And some bonus pieces.
One can’t consider of apple artwork without Rene Magritte.
I saw the Magritte retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
in 1992; a total treat.
