ajillity81:  Art does not need to be selected to match the colors of your room. Pick what you love without regard to being an accessory to your room.

I like to support local up and coming artists so I attend local sales at The Emily Carr Insitiute of Art.

Do you have anything like that where you live? Or sales by local amateur artists?

I got this print of a crew rower from art.com (My other half is a rowing coach) With the frame (from michaels crafts) it was under 100!!

I’ve bought some stuff I really like at World Market, but I don’t really buy art as a long term investment. I just buy what goes with what I’m trying to do.

ajillity81:  We bought a huge print of the Eiffel Tower from Ikea for $50.  They had lots of large wall art canvases under $100.

ajillity81:  they have a lot of quality options Ranging From the super cheap to the very very pricey for each print. We went with a cheaper option because, you know, student loans own me. It’s the quality of a nice poster. I really like it. We have some nicer stuff that was given to us. i think it’s great quality for the price we paid

west elm has lots of art I love! They collaborate with local artists and make some fantastic yet affordable pieces!

I also check out local art shows, but those can be hit or miss.

I agree with PPs – I’ve gotten great art off of Etsy!

ajillity81:  I would routinely check back with Homegoods, TJmaxx and Marshalls…. they get new inventory daily…

Here are some other ideas-

  • Pier One Imports (clearance section has some nice stuff for reasonable prices)
  • Allposters.com

Have you considered printing out photos and framing them yourself?????

If you are willing to spend a few hundered I’d actually check out graduating exhibitions at your local university or art school. I’ve picked up a few pieces like this before and it’s always a great way to support young artists in your local community.
