Art for everyone

I'm struggling to write about 20x200 because it's just that good. Suffice to say that I have a huge crush on the concept, the art, the site and the girl behind this online gallery.

20x200's founder, Jen Bekman, has assembled prints from emerging artists that appeal to diverse tastes but are uniformally sophisticated. They also meet a wide range of amateur art collector budgets, ranging from $20 to $5,000 a piece.

The site itself is a joy to putz around. I particularly love 20x200's story. It's a well written and thoughtful page that reveals the smarts behind this unique business. Bekman clearly has a great eye for art, but she's also a gallery owner who uses her words wisely, describing 20x200's mission in a way that has me really excited about buying art and being a part of her project!

So check out this latest crush of mine - 20x200, a project by Jen Bekman.
