|[Peter Bastaja's Symphonic No.1]|
Original art should be more accessible, and the issue often isn't cost; there are plenty of young and undiscovered artists who sell their work at (relatively) affordable rates. (And let's remember the art should be expensive enough to pay a decent living to the artist!) The issue often is the difficulty of connecting artists and art buyers in non-intimidating ways. Seems like the Affordable Art Festivals are doing just that.
