We have all been warned about having “too much of a good thing.” While this is sound (albeit vague) advice, there are a few instances where I have to agree to disagree. There are times when pure abundance is called for. Love, for instance. Compassion. And art. I hold the absolute conviction that there is no such thing as too much art. This doesn’t mean it needs to be displayed all at the same time. Rather, I like to rotate and curate my home as if I were producing a gallery show. It brings my space to life and allows me the ability to collect art that moves me on an on-going basis. Art feeds the soul and I, for one, don’t ever want to be hungry.
UGallery is an online gallery created by three young entrepreneurs who put their heads together for a class project in college to answer one simple question: how can promising artists connect with people looking to buy reasonably priced, original artwork? The answer was UGallery. Alex Farkas, Stephen Tanenbaum, and Greg Rosborough created a forum where emerging (and established) artists can sell their work while simultaneously constructing a marketplace where you can get lost for hours browsing the gallery “walls.” My recent obsession with photography has me absolutely smitten with Alex Greenburg’s New Mexico. (Tell me that’s not the most hauntingly beautiful photo you’ve ever seen. I dare you.) UGallery also offers a trial run where you can live with a piece for a week and then decide if you want to keep it. This is truly a one stop shop for holiday shopping. (Gift certificate, anyone?) Abundance in its most pristine state.
