If you want a great inexpensive gift idea for someone this Christmas and you are in the Toronto area, I suggest you check out the 16th Annual Festival of Smalls. Art Interiors is a wonderful gallery in Toronto that annually features smaller works by fine artists at low prices. There’s a wide array of art works that would appeal to anyone. And at those prices, you can afford it.
One of my favourite artists, Emily Bickell, is featured again. I love her abstract water paintings, like this one:
If you are wondering: are they all abstract, then I give you this great work of Canadiana by Elizabeth Lennie, called Shinny 20 (appropriately enough):
Go check out the site, here: Art Interiors.
Better yet, go to the gallery and buy something for someone. Oh, and sure, get something for yourself, too. :)
