Boston’s Best Shops To Buy Affordable Art

" Every art collector knows that buying art can be a very expensive hobby. Nonetheless, art brightens up spaces, evokes emotions and is enjoyed by even the least artistic individuals. For most people, art is like furniture. It is great it if it is nice, but spending too much on it is not an option. Thankfully, Boston has the average art buyer covered. There are a number of places to buy art for much less than upscale gallery prices.

The Gateway Gallery and Store is a place for artists with physical and mental disabilities to sell their wares. It not only promotes competence and self care in people who have difficulties in more common fields, but it also allows patrons to see art in a different way. Gifts that feature art by the Gateway Gallery artists are fairly priced and include puzzles, mugs and t-shirts. Original works by the artists, such as sculptures and prints, are pricier, but are often available for under $200.
