Shauna of small medium large did a great post today on affordable art.

I was just cruising my Google Reader and saw Jen Beckman’s project, 20X200, which does exactly what Shauna was talking about. The idea is, she offers a photograph and a work on paper in the following sizes and quantities:
8.5” x 11” 200 for $20
16” x 20” 20 for $200
30” x 40” 2 for $2,000

She was doing it once a week though I’m not positive if it’s still that frequent. Stuff goes quickly; in particular the $20 pieces so act quickly if there’s something you want.

Jen Beckman owns an art gallery in New York City. She opened her gallery with the intention of supporting up and coming artists. In addition to 20x200, she has a twice-yearly Hey, Hot Shot! contest to help emerging photographers. Winners get a two-week exhibition at her gallery.
