    You can get great art for very little in many towns with good art schools.  I went to college at the Savannah College of Art and Design and purchased a very few pieces that I loved and could afford.  Now works by the same artists go for 3-5 times what they did back when we were students.  Work from other artists living in the city were also more reasonably priced because there was an abundance of great art for sale at a price that isn’t outrageous.

    On the other hand, in cities like where I live now, Birmingham, Alabama, there is an abundance of art that gets put on a wall with a high price tag when, were it my work, I certainly wouldn’t let anyone see it, much less put it on a wall or try to pass it off on some poor soul who would only buy it because of an excess of money and pity for me.  Some of them have no, or little training, or approach what they make as craft rather than art, but i don’t feel as if that’s an excuse to be content with shoddy work.

    In any case, cities with big art schools, YAY for good, relatively inexpensive art!
