Irish Affordable Art from Red Rag Gallery

The expression affordable art when used in connection with Irish Artists and Irish Art is difficult to define. The true meaning and understanding of affordable art remains a personal issue. Affordable art means different things from one Irish art buyer to other. Affordable Irish art for one art enthusiast is totally unaffordable art for the next. However a widely held view in the Irish art world is that affordable art, paintings and Limited Edition Prints covers everything up to 3000.

The budget of most art collectors does not reach anywhere near 3000, which is why Red Rag offer a choice of Irish art at much lower and affordable. Red Rag look to promote the work of Irish Artists with prices starting from as little as 250. There are also a number of other Irish Art Galleries who specialise in helping art buyers find art at affordable prices.

Affordable art: 'Friendship II' by artist Anji Allen

Rather than art galleries graduate art shows offer another option to consider in searching for affordable art. Irish Art Schools and Colleges stage annual art exhibitions for graduating artists where a wide variety of art works can be viewed. The art work of most of the graduates participating in the shows can be bought.

The concept of finding and buying great art work from Irish art students at the start of their career is very appealing and the art should be very affordable. However as is often the case that perception and reality can be very different. The quality and type of art displayed at the art college shows is incredibly varied. Some students can also over price the value of their work which means buying art from graduate shows is not always the best Art Investment. As very few art graduates go on to become highly successful professional artists ' therefore if future art values are a concern, then buying affordable art from already established Irish artists is certainly a less risky investment.

It is worth remembering that just because a desirable Irish art work maybe affordable it does not necessarily make it value for money. The majority of Irish art buyers are making a long term decision on an item which will be kept for many years. It makes sense before purchasing to carefully consider if potential art works are likely to create the same enjoyment in 10 years time. If the answer is yes and it is affordable art then buying from graduate shows can be a good source of Irish art.

Affordable art: 'After School' by Irish artist Mary Pickering

The explosion of art related websites should be a good source for buying affordable art from Irish artists. As always the challenge with the Internet is finding exactly the right thing. There are hundreds of websites promoting and offering affordable art from all over the world. There more than 20 million references showing on search engines for the term 'Affordable Art'.

Many of the art related websites are artist owned or purely Internet 'Art Galleries'. Disappointingly quality and service can be very poor and Irish art buyers need to be cautious before parting with their art funds.

Before buying any Irish art online art purchasers should look carefully at what buyer protection is offered. All quality online art galleries selling Irish art will offer no-quibble returns for affordable art. This is an extremely valuable service for art collectors, but is only as good as the website or online gallery guarantee. Affordable art buyers of Irish art at Red Rag Gallery have the added peace of mind that the business has traded for many years and has physical galleries in addition to its highly successful art websites

In summary there is a plethora of affordable art being promoted through art websites, graduate shows and art fairs. However, finding really good quality Irish art at affordable prices is much more challenging and is extremely time consuming. There are opportunities for art collectors to own good works at reasonable prices, but when buying it is sensible to choose carefully from well established and trusted art professionals such as Red Rag Gallery.
