20x200: "Art Doesn't Have to Be Expensive to Be Good"

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Jen Bekman's on a mission to make great art available to everyone.

The New York-based gallery owner opened shop in 2003 with a goal to expose the work of emerging artists to collectors. Four years later, she writes that she came up with a formula: (limited editions x low prices) + the internet = art for everyone.

Enter 20x200, a site that introduces two new (and limited) editions per week -- most available in three or four sizes for different prices -- starting at $20. This week, "Bird Power" by of our own local creatives, Carrie Marill, is up for grabs (pictured left).

As Bekman puts it, "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. 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."

You can nab one of Marill's prints and read more on the 20x200 project website.
