Curiosity Cabinet No. 7

Curiosity Cabinet No. 7
I bought this piece of art on Tuesday. The gallery at work had new art hung on Tuesday with a display entitled "Art from the Other Side"

"Art from the Other Side" includes a truly remarkable body of work from artists who cannot easily be defined by a particular movement. We hope that viewers are moved emotionally by the raw and earnest offerings of this wonderful selection of artists."

I saw this piece and feel in love with it. Nikkie Rogers created this mixed media piece in 2011.

I like the size, the design and visual texture. I also liked the price, $35.00. I called immediately and purchased the piece.

I am an artist and know how important it is to be able to sell my work. When I connect with a piece of art, I consider purchasing it. When was the last time you supported your local artists?

Last time I bought art? One of my favorite places, a local high school art show! Some of the work by high school kids is wonderful. I bought an 8X10 linoleum print in several colors and several layers -very unusual! It was a Christmas gift for my brother. It was a whole $25, with another $15 for mat and frame. Marvelous!
