A few years back while strolling in the artsy district of Montmartre in Paris, I stumbled upon a unique art gallery, Carré d’artistes, of which I would become a lifetime fan and patron.
The concept is simple: affordable yet original creations by local artists, all sold in a square format at fixed prices. One may acquire a small painting for the modest sum of 75 Euros, the larger pieces going for higher prices.
Several artists offer their work in different square sizes. The result is a modern art gallery offering
original work by emerging artists, at affordable prices. What’s not to love?
Better yet, the concept exists in many cities worldwide, including Paris and Montréal.
