Why love “ArtWeLove?”

I don’t consider myself a collector of art, but I see tons of it every week at New York galleries and museums. I also own a few small pieces, mostly gifted to me by artists themselves. Art is expensive, needless to say, but you don’t really need to have a giant budget to buy it. An extreme way to build a collection is like the famous working class Vogels by setting aside half of your monthly income and buying art from really young artists, whose works you really feel passionate about, build a collection that might just make it to the National Gallery. A great way to learn how the Vogels’ did is by watching the documentary about them, Herb and Dorothy.
Actually what’s more important than being able to afford art is having the space to show it. That 300 sq feet apartment/home office in Manhattan might not have enough wall for it, so be prepared to rotate your growing collection.
Another way to acquire affordable art is by buying prints. And I’m not talking about reproductions of famous works of art the neighbors bought at the Louvre on their first Europe trip; I’m talking about the prints that were made to be shown as such, limited editions printed with care by enthusiasts of the artists.
ArtWeLove‘s business is best described in their own words, “curated limited editions, by some of the best artists living today, irresistibly priced for every budget.” One of their artists is Brent Green, who is now showing at Andrew Edlin Gallery.

The way they share their love of art is in their weekly newsletter, which brings art news and first view of limited edition prints, which you can get on their website. There you’ll also find profiles of the artists whose prints you can purchase and short videos from studio visits.
