Where Do We Get Art From?
Galleries are an excellent source for art selection. Those with strong online platforms allow selecting art based on multiple parameters from a very large number of artworks. Galleries usually specialize in certain kinds of art or represent selected artists. While they are more difficult to navigate, they can be a source of fabulous contemporary works of very high quality. The average price range for artworks presented by the galleries is $300 - $5000 per artwork.
If someone looking for a true art experience, getting artwork from an artist can be the right choice. First of all, the selection of artworks is wider than through a gallery. Secondly, meeting interesting people and getting an understanding of how they create can be enlightening. The average price range for artworks from the artist is $800 - $8000 per artwork.
Auctions will give you tremendous opportunities to explore museum-quality art. It's an unforgettable experience that rewards persistence and patience. As the name auction entails, the artworks are "won" in competition with others. Museum-quality art does not necessarily mean unreasonable prices. The average price for artworks sourced from the auctions starts at $3000 per artwork.
