There’s a guy that lives just down the road named Les Wexner. The two of us are very much alike. We both spent some early years on the east side of Columbus. We both now live in New Albany Ohio. We both love art. We both have art hanging on our walls. We both are billionaires…oops!

……….OK, I’m not a billionare but I am rich in other ways. 

A painting on Les Wexner’s wall…

“Cows in a Field” – Jean Dubuffet

Mr. Wexner has a world-class art collection. “…it really is no exaggeration to say that it’s one of the finest private collections of 20th-century art in the country and even the world,” says Picasso scholar Lisa Florman. In his 2014 exhibition “Transfigurations”,  I saw amazing paintings by Jean Dubuffet, Pablo Picasso and Susan Rothenberg, not to mention sculptures by Degas and Giacometti . Wexner owns 19 Picasso paintings, some individually worth 10’s of millions. And some consider his Dubuffet collection to be the the best in America. 

Another Dubuffet from the Wexner Collection…

“Man With a Blue Hat” – Jean Dubuffet

He couldn’t face empty walls while part of his collection was displayed elsewhere, so Wexner arranged to have full-sized copies made and framed to temporarily hang in his home. You and I probably don’t have the resources to become this kind of fine-art aficionado, so let’s talk about what we can hang on the walls of our humble mini-mansions.

So what about our walls? Since most of us are NOT billionaires we have much less to spend on art and therefore we can’t use the traditional art galleries, art experts and art consultants to find what we need. We can’t travel the world to see internationally known museums and galleries. Here is the good news: We have recently entered an unprecedented era of art equality! We now have so many options in the Internet Age. It is easier than ever before to find amazing art in any style, size and price range. It’s all around us, both locally and world-wide. We’re exposed to a lot of it on social media. FaceBook and especially Instagram, account for a rapidly growing share of the original art market. 

So much ART out there!

If you seek out art online, you will find galleries galore, complete information about art and artists and, of course, direct links to individual artists. However, you can also find high-quality original art in your own area and use the Internet to find it. Almost every community has art fairs, sidewalk shows, interesting galleries, artist co-ops, art colonies, etc.  Many talented artists are just waiting for you to discover them.

Buying art in your community is good for the local economy, good for the artists, and VERY good for your own self-esteem. It is quite a satisfying feeling to know that you are a PATRON of  the arts.  And it’s fun to get personally acquainted with some artists and to know that you are supporting their work.

    I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Sick and tired of being bored? There’s nothing at all good to watch on TV these days. How many cat videos can you watch at YouTube? What you really want is some live adult entertainment. That’s what http://www.camgirl.pw is all about. It’s 24/7 excitement like you’ve never seen before. Check it out and tell a friend. Something this good needs to be shared.

    You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be really one thing which I think I’d by no means understand.
