Best Place to Buy Art

This artist-run space has presented a variety of approachable opportunities to buy art over the years: CART in 2011, a gallery storefront turned grocery store-style art shop; and BINGO in 2012, a rambunctious performative bingo game with collectible artist bingo cards. The gallery continues to host Transmodern Festival markets and happenings. Most recently, the gallery worked with Print/Collect to display the work of eight notable printmakers whose work was solicited for a folio and publication, available together for the price of a cheap painting. Print/Collect may be asking more from your wallet than you shelled out at CART or other local art and publication fairs, but with the quality of work being presented, we dare say this is a good thing. Check out rotating gallery shows and the shop on Current’s website for more available works.
