1. It’s not every day we see our artwork featured in Vogue! 

    Bettina Prentice, founder and owner of Prentice Art: “I did almost all of my Christmas shopping on Artspace.com this year. Part of their mission is collaborating with cultural institutions and nonprofits like limited editions so they’ll produce a portfolio of incredible contemporary art to benefit, say, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Creative Time, or even Coalition for the Homeless. The editions are just what I look for 1) by respected artists, 2) small in scale, and 3) very high in quality.”

  3. Artwork of the Day:

    Rose Tinted Lens by Jack Hardwicke

    From our list of holiday staff picks. This work was selected by Bill Claps, our finance and business planning consultant (and Artspace artist). 

    “I’m attracted by the abstract and roughly imperfect multilayered quality of this image, which feels to me like a found artifact that hints at a past history behind the scratches on the surface—perhaps something more sinister beyond the apparent beauty of the image.”
