ART//How Low Can You Go? Photography at K&K for $100
So when we say affordable art, we don’t mean under 5 grand. Unlike some definitions of affordable art, we are talking about things you can buy without really making a dent in your already low budget or just something you can buy because you like it! Well, if really affordable art is what you seek, K&K in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (so close to home) is opening a show simply titled SMALL PRINTS, which you can’t miss. Who doesn’t need some original artwork to brighten their homes and in turn their lives? Like the musical Gypsy wisely warns: you gotta have a gimmick!
And prints for $100 works for us.
The show opens this Friday, January 29th from 7-10pm and runs through March 22nd. At the gamine we particularly like the samples of work from Toby Cayouette (it almost looks like a drawing) and Laura June Kirch (scary/fun prom memories anyone?). Original artwork is hard to come by on the cheap but this gallery seems to have it down.
Participating artists include the aforementioned Toby Cayouette and Laura June Kirsch, in addition to Alex Gaidouk, Drew Heffron, Sarah Kalagvano, Andrew Kenney, Kevin Kunstadt, Erica Lai, Sean Marc Lee, Noele Lusano, Anna Mack, Alex Mctigue, Anna Moller, Yuta Nakajima, Damien Saatdjian, George Underwood and Elizabeth Weinberg.
Andrew Kenney and Kevin Kunstadt are the founders of K&K who run the gallery out of their apartment on the Southside. This is an idea which we love here at the gamine (and we are pretty sure we invented first, but never implemented it). In an interview with PAPERMAG back in November, Kenney maintains the space is, “devoid of pretension. We have a neon open sign in front. Accessibility is huge, in every way — for the people who are showing work and for the people who are looking at it and buying it. Prices can’t be crazy, attitude can’t be crazy. We’re just two guys who like photography and want to share what we like.” And we like that too!
So check out the show. Maybe even buy something…just make sure to get it framed nicely.
