Not Just another day at the by Today I enjoyed spending time with my children and my husband. What a day it was. The competition part of the sculpting event had actually completed yesterday, but the sculptures were all still in place. Parking took 30 minutes to come by, but it was more than worth the wait. Upon entry on the beach we saw amazingly strung kites almost invisibly floating among the white puffy clouds. People of all types, families, couples, groups of friends, you name it they were there. Packed like cattle. Some oblivious to the event but enjoying the beach. Kite flyers happy for the perfect weather. Vendors awaiting their crowds. Of course we had to enjoy some fried dough. There were groups and groups of people fighting for a spot to take their pictures. Band music playing in the background while the sun and the humidity pounded down on its prey. None of this matters as long as you got what you came for and I share with you all that I was able to capture. I hope you enjoy the array! Photos and Story by Felina Silver Robinson

Every art collector knows that buying art can be a very expensive hobby. Nonetheless, art brightens up spaces, evokes emotions and is enjoyed by even the least artistic individuals. For most people, art is like furniture. It is great it if it is nice, but spending too much on it is not an option. Thankfully, Boston has the average art buyer covered. There are a number of places to buy art for much less than upscale galleryprices.
Gateway Gallery And Store
62 Harvard St.
Brookline, MA 02445
The Gateway Gallery and Store is a place for artists with physical and mental disabilities to sell their wares. It not only promotes competence and self care in people who have difficulties in more common fields, but it also allows patrons to see art in a different way. Gifts that feature art by the Gateway Gallery artists are fairly priced and include puzzles, mugs and t-shirts. Original works by the artists, such as sculptures and prints, are pricier, but are often available for under $200.
516 E. 2nd St.
South Boston, MA 02127
Proof Gallery is located in The Distillery with a number of other galleries so visitors will have a lot to see when more than one studio or gallery is open at the same time. Contemporary,innovative and experimental art and artistry is the norm at Proof. However, the real draw for those looking for inexpensive art are Proof’s flat files. Flat files are known for being less expensive, as they are original prints and drawings rather than more expensive works like paintings and sculpture. These are available to peruse by appointment or during gallery hours.
Carroll And Sons Art Gallery
Boston Drawing Project
450 Harrison Ave.
Boston, MA 02118
Another gallery that houses an impressive selection of flat files at reasonable prices is Carroll and Sons Art Gallery. This is largely thanks to its Boston Drawing Project, which invites artists to submit drawings, no charcoal, to sell in the gallery. Pieces range in medium from ink to paint. There are also photographs for those interested in hanging photographic prints. Of course, the selection is rather limited to potential wall art, but the prices are good for original pieces.
169 Newbury St.
Boston, MA 02116
Located in a great neighborhood for art shopping, the Childs Gallery has a little bit at both ends of the price spectrum. Shoppers will see some pricier items, but taking the time to peruse the gallery’s offerings will reveal less expensive pieces that are affordable for the average art buyer. Look for the gallery at art and jewelry fairs and exhibitions for nice pieces at good prices as well. This gallery offers a wide variety of artists and styles at a wide range of prices.

Museum Of Fine Arts Gift Shop
465 Huntington Ave.
Boston, MA 02115
The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has a lot of great art on display that will never be up for sale, at least not for an affordable price. Luckily, art fans are able to get prints, t-shirts, mugs and much more at the museum’s gift shop at typical museum gift shop prices. This is one of the best places in town to get a gift for someone who enjoys art, but it is also a great place to get home decor, coffee table books and games. Even sculptures and glass art are within financial reach at the MFA Gift Shop.
