Cruising the student bodies [of work] and emerging artists at Ugallery.com
With friends and neighbors being voted off corporate islands daily, splurging on art seems sinful. ENTER the divine intervention of Ugallery. Strictly online, it connects apt pupils, future Friedas and budget-conscious collectors by selling original masterpieces at economy-friendly price points. Ranging from acrylic to chalk to photography, the art is both raw AND refined.
Ugallery itself is a true work of art. The user-friendly website allows speedy searches by medium, genre, size, price, color and artist. Before any pieces enter the gallery, they must be approved by an expert panel of curators. They’ve also got a Picasso of a return policy. Try any artwork out for seven days and if your walls aren’t smitten, send it back with free return shipping. If this policy were around circa 1888, perhaps Van Gogh would have gotten that earlobe back from Gauguin.
