Last weekend I had a lot of fun at San Diego’s ArtWalk NTC @ Liberty Station. So many amazing works of art, from paintings and photography to jewelry and even lounging swings. We went as a family, and I was impressed how interested in the art both of my girls were. Jane even bought a small piece.
I love original art. A print of a famous work of art can be lovely, but an original work of art displayed in a home is stunning. There is something compelling about the textures and colors of an original work that no print or mass-produced piece will ever capture.
Original art is often more affordable than you might think, and often well worth the cost. While I might not cover my walls in one-of-a-kind pieces, having one or two in a room brings an refined aesthetic and a sense of quality to the room. An interesting work of art can easily be the focal point for any room. Plus, buying work from local artists supports my community.
I’d like to share a few artists from the ArtWalk whose work I loved. I’ve included information about how to contact them if you are interested in seeing more of their work.
