Give the Gift of Art for Christmas

Picking out art for someone else can be a little tricky, but I guarantee these finds are sure to please everyone on your list.  The best part is, art doesn't have to break the bank.  Everything in this round-up is under $100, and I'm even including a way to experience some art for FREE (keep reading 'til the end)!  

This post is sponsored by some really awesome artists, but all opinions are my own.

-$30 & Under-

If you saw our recent #HCCMakers photo shoot, you know this is one talented bunch of creators.  I bet you'll love their art even more when you see the price tag!

I've been a fan of Megan Carn for so long... if you can't tell, we are both majorly into color!  Any pet lover would smile when they see one of her happy pup prints, and I'm obsessed with all of her other animals too- she has everything from jungle animals to champagne-sipping flamingoes!  Follow her on Instagram for a never-ending dose of color.

Straight to Art is essentially an online gallery of over a dozen fabulous artists, so it's a great way to shop a plethora of local art all in one place. They have work from some of my favorite artists- Sally B., Modern South, and Julia Deckman to name a few.  I recently discovered their selection of under $100 art, which is pretty rare when it comes to actual paintings!  I'm currently obsessing over this one & can't believe it even includes the frame for that price. By the way, the Straight to Art team even offers studio management for all of those local artists that are ready to take things to the next level! 



If you know someone on your list is a little hard to shop for, take them on a fun window shopping adventure and maybe they will drop some hints about their favorite pieces.  Or, pick out a painting for your home together with your significant other.  There is a FREE art walk this Friday December 1 from 5-8 pm.  You can enjoy adult beverages while you stroll around gorgeous Charleston streets and pop in and out of over 40 galleries. It's one of my favorite quarterly Charleston events.  Be sure to check out the new gallery on the block- Revealed.  You can usually spot them with one of our balloons out front!
