32 Under $200: Get Started Collecting Affordable Craft

(Photo: Wooden bowls by Phil Gautreau, $200)

Craft collectors know the price of the work they buy reflects the time, effort and expertise of artists who have spent their lives learning the special qualities of their medium, and the cost of using the finest materials, often organic or rare.  But you have to start somewhere, so we’ve put together a list for new collectors of Craft Show artists offering select pieces under $200. You can also visit Craft U to see the work of young and emerging artists from Moore College of Art & Design, Kutztown University, University of the Arts and SCAD.

Collectors at the Craft Show can meet the artists, learn their history and stories, and talk with them about their inspirations and the techniques they use to create their one-of-a-kind works.  An under-$200 purchase today can lead to a lifetime relationship with an artist and the beautiful objects they create.
