The truth is, it’s very hard to get something surprising, special, and unusual enough to be remembered far beyond the holidays. We’ve always been so happy that ArtInsights, and film, animation, and contemporary art, is one way to make the season brighter. It isn’t just about buying something, is it? If you’re going to offer a gift, It’s knowing those you love well enough, spending the time, being inventive, and really expressing appreciation about them being in your life. That’s what takes a holiday to an even more special place. WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED!
The way people’s eyes light up when they see their favorite characters represented, or the passion they recognize in a portrait of, say, David Bowie, that corresponds with what Bowie’s music has meant to them. Those are frequent occurrences here. There’s no better time than when we hear how a gift of art from our gallery is received.
With that in mind, here are some great options for those searching for that special piece. We have a wide variety of prices and images, so we’ll just post links here, and you can click through and see whole collections. Also, please bear in mind that we have lots of pieces in the gallery that are even less expensive that what we show here on our website, but as we ship internationally, we tend to just keep most pieces under $100 for those calling or stopping by to find that ‘little something’…
Let’s start with this page of things we have framed and in-stock, much of which is hard to get, sold out, or special…it’s by no means exhaustive, but there are some interesting, and beautiful art options HERE.
If you are a fan of Tennessee Loveless (and who isn’t, with the release of his new book on October 31st, 10x10x10, The Art of Tennessee Loveless?!) he will be here Thanksgiving weekend for Drag Friday (happening on Black Friday, obviously!) and we will have new limited editions from The Art Outsiders, of Prince, Grace Jones, and Billie Holiday, as well as new 10x10x10 images that appear in the book. You can see all his work HERE. (you can buy the new book from us or from Amazon.)
THE ART OF DISNEY:
The best art for the holidays for gifting is often from the Treasures on Canvas collection, which can be found HERE:
THE ART OF MARVEL:
Alex Ross has done some great images for Marvel this year, and the price range starts at only $75! We have a limited number of images for that price of Captain America and Doctor Strange, as well as a few other well-priced “under the table” images–Call us. For other Marvel art, go HERE.
THE ART OF HARRY POTTER:
We just had a Harry Potter event over Halloween, and were able to get some wonderful, exclusive images to sell. We also have original art used in the making of the films. Of course, as always, all the art is created by artists who actually worked on the films or books. You can find all our Harry Potter art HERE.
Two images have been double signed by Dan Radcliffe and concept artist Jim Salvati, and they can be bought together for $1500, or you can buy just the Golden Snitch image for $750. Only ten exist from this exclusive duo-signed set, and only 2 are left for sale.
THE ART OF DC COMICS:
Timing, timing, timing. If it isn’t the blockbuster hit Wonder Woman, that broke all the records for female directors, it’s The Justice League. DC is all over 2017. Maybe this is the perfect time to get some Wonder Woman or Batman art? Or something will the whole Justice League? A link with lots of great DC art is HERE.
If you live within driving distance, we also have some great hard-to-find framed movie posters, including The Fly, Gremlins, Aliens, and The Black Hole. There are production cels and original drawings here, too, including an original, signed original cel of all three of The Powerpuff Girls together. Between what is in the gallery and what is on our new, (not completely perfect, but getting better all the time) website, we hope shopping with us will be fun and solve the evergreen problem of “let’s get something super cool, but what?”
I’m sure we can find some art here that will make the end of 2017 a bit more memorable and joyful for you and yours!
Best of the holiday season to you all, and hope to hear from you or see you soon!
Leslie and Michael of ArtInsights.
