Spotted: Carrie Marill's "Growth" on 20x200
Bekman opened her gallery in 2003 with a goal to expose the work of emerging artists to collectors. Four years later, she came up with a formula: (limited editions x low prices) + the internet = art for everyone.
"There are a lot of people out there who want to sell their art and a lot of people who'd like to buy it," writes Bekman. "They just have a hard time finding each other ... We're really excited about creating a place where almost any art lover can be an art collector."
20x200 introduces two new (and limited) editions per week -- most available in three or four sizes for different prices -- starting at $20 and available with frames. This week, "Growth" by of our own local creatives, Carrie Marill, is up for grabs (pictured left).

"I started these gouache on paper drawings in late 2010, about the same time I was due to give birth to our first baby boy," writes Marill of her series, "A Year in the Life of 8 String Theory Drawing," which was on view at Bekman's gallery last month. "Needless to say, it was a time of immense change and anticipation. During my pregnancy I decided not to make any art, instead I stored all the ideas in my memory bank for future use. After our son was born, it all came flooding out. Within a year I had made a mountain of work, bought and remodeled an apartment building and helped raise a new baby with the help of an equally busy husband."
Marill's "Growth" is sold out at the lowest size, but prints are available at 14-by-11, 20-by-16, and 4-by-30 inches. You can grab one (or two) at 20x200, see more of her work on her website, and check out a mural she just painted on the corner of Roosevelt and Third streets in downtown Phoenix.
